Student Athlete Participation
Any student meeting the MISD and UIL residential and eligibility requirements may compete for a position on any athletic team.
All athletes participating in MISD Athletics make a commitment to the team, their teammates and their school. Each program demands the dedication of time and energy of the athlete. Part of this commitment is to be a student first and strive for academic excellence. Another integral part of that commitment is to place the MISD Athletic team above participation in any non-school sanctioned activity and attend all practices and games scheduled by MISD Coaches.
If an athlete chooses to miss an MISD Athletic practice or event because of participation in an activity not under the auspices of MISD, the student athlete will be suspended for one game. On the second offense, the athlete has chosen the outside activity over an MISD sport, and he/she will be released from the team.
All freshmen athletes will be placed in a general athletic period. If the athlete chooses to participate in more than one sport, they will participate with the team that is in season before moving on to the next sport. At the conclusion of the athlete’s freshman year, the athlete will chose an athletic period. It should be emphasized that this will not prohibit the athlete from participating in any additional sports, but is merely designed to better administrate the athlete periods. No freshman athlete may be put in varsity athletic period without approval from campus coordinator. Freshman softball and baseball will be conducted after school only. Any deviation of this policy must have approval of head coaches involved, campus coordinator and the athletic director.
Athletes must meet all UIL (University Interscholastic League),TEA,and all MISD requirements.
