Handbook for Student Athletes: Welcome from Dr. Sovine

I am pleased that your son or daughter has chosen to participate in the interscholastic athletic program in Frederick County Public Schools. Participating in athletics is beneficial to both the student and to the school. However, if maximum benefits are to be attained through athletic participation, it is essential for an athlete to meet certain standards.

I encourage you, as the parent of a student athlete, to read and support the rules and regulations as set forth in this Handbook for Student Athletes. Please review this material, sign the form and return it to your athlete’s head coach prior to the first practice session.

On behalf of the administration and coaching staff, I want to thank you for your support of our student athletes and the coaches who work on their behalf. Please take a minute also to review carefully the Core Character Traits we seek to promote not only with student athletes, but with our entire Frederick County Public Schools’ student body. We welcome the opportunity to serve your student athlete.
