PTHS ATHLETIC/ACTIVITY CODE Participation in athletics is a privilege. Those who participate in athletics have a responsibility to favorably represent the school and community. Student athletes are expected to conduct themselves both in and out of school in a manner appropriate to their responsibilities as representatives of the school and district. If a student fails to comply with the terms of this code, the privilege to participate in athletics may be lost in accordance with the terms of this Athletic Code. RULES IN EFFECT The rules set forth in this Athletic Code are in effect throughout the calendar year and twenty four hours a day, whether or not school is in session and including vacation periods, and holidays. The rules apply on and off campus and whether or not the misconduct occurs at school or a school-sponsored activity or in some other locale. The rules apply from the beginning of the athlete’s first tryout or practice in the first sport which the athlete attempts until the completion of the athlete’s eligibility in all sports. Failure to complete the entire season in good standing may result in the forfeiture of post-season awards, letters, recognitions, and/or banquet attendance.
