OBERLIN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT HANDBOOK

 

ATHLETICS

 

ATHLETIC DRUG POLICY

All student athletes at OHS will conform to the following drug policy set by the school: OHS may randomly test one male and one female athlete during a sports season using a urine specimen upon request of the principal. The athlete and parent will also sign an LHSAA contract to participate.

 

ATHLETIC EVENTS—CONDUCT

Students should show proper courtesy and respect before, during, and after the game. Students should show appreciation for superior performance by both teams and should stay the entire game no matter who is winning. Students should not distract members of either team during tense moments or start a cheer when the opposing team has one in progress. Students should refrain from entering the court or field during game time and should be good losers and modest winners. Students should exhibit good sportsmanship by not making derogatory remarks or yells. Students should not smoke cigarettes or use alcoholic beverages or drugs at any school function. Any student or spectator who misbehaves at an athletic event may be asked to leave. If ejected, the student or spectator will be banned from any future contests in that sport for the remainder of the season. Depending on the severity of the behavior, the administration may choose to ban him/her from attending any athletic event for the remainder of the school year.
 

ATHLETICS—HIGH SCHOOL

OHS offers a variety of activities. Girls may participate in basketball, softball, track and field, and golf. Boys may participate in football, basketball, baseball, track and field, and golf.
