Activities

 

Kirbyville offers a variety of activities, clubs, and sports.  We believe that participating in school activities can help students build perseverance, integrity, and confidence which will serve them in all future endeavors.  Exploring the activities we have available will help students learn about themselves and, in combination with academics, support their development in mind, body, and character.

Sports & Teams

  • Any students desiring to participate in extracurricular athletics, either as a player or manager, must meet the following criteria:

     

    1. The students must have been in attendance, on the day of the event, a minimum of ½ day (3.5 hours). Students who miss class on the date of a contest without being excused by the school Principal or Superintendent will not be considered eligible on that date.

     

    1. Grades: The Kirbyville R-VI School District recognizes that academic eligibility is the foundation upon which participation and success are built. Per board policy IGD, participation in an extracurricular activity or group is a privilege, not a right.

     

    The student must maintain a C- or better in every core class to be eligible to participate (tryout, practice, play in contests). No student will be allowed to participate or be eligible if they receive a failing grade of (F) in any class. Any student who’s grade falls below a C- in a core class, as determined by the preceding Quarter grade report, prior to official tryouts must meet the following criteria:

     

    A. No student with a grade below a C- in a core class will be allowed to tryout, practice, or participate if the team roster /number of open positions, is full with students who have a C- or better grade.

    B. Students who were originally eligible with a grade or grades that fall below C- in a core class during the season will be allowed to continue to practice, but may not participate or play in any matches/games/athletic contests.

    C. A student with a grade below a C-in a core class will be allowed to tryout and practice, but not allowed to participate or play in any matches/games/athletic contests until the grade or grades in question are raised to C- or better as determined by the next grading period.

    D. A grading period is defined as a Quarter or end of term grade. Mid-terms are progress measures and will be used to determine eligibility for participation (for students who were originally ineligible the preceding grading period).

     

    1. All students participating in extracurricular criteria must have a satisfactory physical examination from a doctor on file with school. The Kirbyville Athletic Program will make accommodations to provide physicals for the student athletes at a minimal cost, dependent on the ability to secure a

    cooperating physician. The Athletic Director will notify parents of physical dates and times when physicals may be obtained. Physical forms are available from the coaches or the office should parents decide to obtain the physicals from their family physician.

     

    1. Student participants must be covered by accident insurance, provided by parents or guardians. It is board policy that all students participating in extra-curricular activities have some type of insurance coverage. Documenting this coverage is required. It may be wise to check with your current insurance provider to ensure that your plan covers accidents that may occur with these activities.

     

    1. All injuries should be of great concern to the coach and should be documented and reported to the office. The coaches have parental permission to contact emergency medical personnel if deemed necessary. Student athletes under the care of a physician must have release from that physician before being allowed to resume practice and/or play.

     

    1. All participants must be good school citizens. Students who receive designated (*) major disciplinary referrals will not be eligible to participate (please refer to the student discipline chart), as determined by the principal. The coach, sponsor, or principal has ultimate authority to remove eligibility due to the student's behavior, which may or may not be in direct conflict with existing discipline policies. Athletes may be held to a higher standard as they represent our school on and off the court or playing field. Consequences for non-compliance with team and/or school rules may include but not be limited to warnings and extra conditioning, benching, or removal from squad or team. Disrespect of rules, peers, school personnel or ones-self, in any form will not be tolerated either on or off the court or the playing field and may result in automatic dismissal.

     

    1. All participants must be currently enrolled and engaged in a full academic course load. Additional eligibility criteria may be set by the School Board or administration as appropriate/applicable.

     

    8. All participants will be required to go through a try-out procedure.

     

      1. The coaching staff for basketball, baseball, and volleyball establishes qualifying guidelines.

     

    B. Cheerleading tryout procedure is as follows:

    1. Teacher evaluation forms are completed on each candidate.

     

    1. Each candidate will have the opportunity to attend training sessions prior to the official tryout.

     

    1. At the tryout each judge will complete an evaluation form after each candidate’s performance. A third party will total these forms and the athletic director may review them. Each candidate’s score will be combined with the teacher evaluation scores to yield a total tryout score.

     

    1. The judges will be secured by the cheer coach and approved

    by the Athletic Director. These judges will be individuals from the community, surrounding high schools or colleges.

     

    All camps/clinics are mandatory for each cheerleader. All cheerleaders are required to perform all stunts, dances, cheers and chants. Participation is required at all designated activities, i.e. games, pep rallies, fund-raisers etc.

  • All students are required to complete an annual physical before participating in Kirbyille sports programs.  Click here to download the physical form.
