Troy School District will continue the “Pay to Participate” program for athletics, clubs and intramural activities for the 2018-19 school year. The district will assess a fee to those students participating in interscholastic athletics (Grade 7-12). In addition, a separate fee will be assessed to students (Grade 6-12) who participate in intramural and/or club activities.
Concussion injuries can occur during sports and other activities and should always be taken seriously. New Michigan Department of Community Health regulations require that we share information with parents and students regarding concussions.
This LINK will take to you a video produced by the CDC that provides more information on concussions and what to do if you suspect one.
This LINK will take you to important written information that all students and their parents MUST review regarding concussions. The second page is a sign off sheet that MUST BE SIGNED by students and parents before a student will be allowed to participate in athletics, recess, physical education classes or other physical activities after June 30th of the current year.
Please return the sign off sheet to your coach or school office.

The only exception is when prior arrangements are made and the coach grants permission for the student to leave the contest site with his/her parent, guardian or other adult family member.
Failure to Comply: Any participant not returning from any away contest with a team without permission of the coach is ineligible to participate in the next scheduled contest.

Uniforms and Equipment
Use or Possession of Tobacco, Alcohol and Other Drug Substances
Students are to refrain from use of tobacco, alcoholic beverage, and any controlled substance, look-alike or mood altering chemicals at all times. Optimum physical and mental condition is necessary for high performance in athletics. It is vital to safeguard the personal health and safety of each participant. We recognize this and are aware of the negative impact that chemical use can have on our teams. Because this is so important and because we want to help any student athletes who may have a tobacco or chemical use problem, the following rule is in effect: During the season of practice and competition, regardless of the quantity, a student athlete shall not: (1) use or have in possession tobacco or tobacco products including smokeless tobacco; (2) use or have in possession a beverage containing alcohol; (3) use or consume, have in possession, buy, sell or give away marijuana or any controlled or look-alike substance, including anabolic steroids. It is not a violation for a student to be in possession of a drug specifically prescribed for the student’s own use by his/her doctor.
Failure to Comply: Grades 7-8: Any and all violations will use the following procedure: Seventh and eighth grade athletes who possess or use tobacco products, alcohol and/or other drug substances will be removed from the team. Reinstatement for future sports seasons will be considered by the principal or designee only after a meeting with the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the student. Grades 9-12: All violations are cumulative from the beginning of the athlete’s freshman year to the completion of the athlete’s senior year and start the first practice of the first participating sport.
First Violation - Tobacco Products
Only After confirmation of a violation, the student athlete will not be allowed to participate in athletics for a minimum of the next interscholastic event or one week of a season, whichever is greater. However, no student will be required to miss more than 10% of the regular season contests. The student athlete cannot practice while suspended from school. An optional conference may be requested by either the coach or the building athletic director to include the student athlete and/or parent. It is recommended the student athlete participate in a workshop consortium based on tobacco usage. (The cost of the workshop is the responsibility of the family.)
First Violation - Alcohol and Other Drug Substances/Second Violation - Tobacco Products
After confirmation of the first violation, the student athlete will not be allowed to participate in athletics for a minimum of the next two (2) consecutive interscholastic athletic events or two(2) weeks of a season, whichever is greater. However, no student will be required to miss more than 20% of the regular season contests. If the violation occurs at the conclusion of a season whereas the students’ non-participation requirement has not been met, the remainder of the game(s) exclusion will be completed in the next participating sport. In order to be reinstated for contests, the student must:
1. Participate in a follow-up conference with parent, coach, building athletic director and principal.
2. Participate in the mandatory drug workshop consortium if violation is for alcohol or other chemical abuse. (The cost of the workshop is the responsibility of the family.)
Second Violation - Alcohol and Other Drug Substances/ Third Violation - Tobacco Products
After confirmation of a violation, the student athlete will be dismissed from the team and will be excluded from all athletic interscholastic participation for the remainder of that sport season. If there is less than 50% of the season remaining when the violation occurs, the student will not be eligible to participate in the first half (50%) of the next participating sports game days/ contests. In the case of alcohol or other chemical use, in order for the student to be allowed to participate in interscholastic athletics in future sport seasons during the current school year, the parent and student must show evidence that the student has undergone professional assessment for chemical dependency at a Michigan State Department of Substance Abuse Services approved agency. (The cost of the program is the responsibility of the family.) These conditions would be clarified in a required conference with student, parent, coach, building athletic director, and principal.
Third Violation - Alcohol and Other Drug Substance/Fourth Violation-Tobacco Products
After confirmation of a violation in a subsequent sport season, the student athlete will be dismissed from the team and excluded from all athletic interscholastic participation for three hundred and sixty-five (365) days, effective the date of the third violation. In the case of alcohol or other chemical use, in order for the student to be allowed to participate in athletics in future school years, the conditions outlined in the second violation above must be met.
Fourth Violation - Alcohol and Other Drug Substance/Fifth Violation - Tobacco Products
