III. LEVELS OF COMPETITIONModifiedThe Modified B level is designed for students in grades 7 and 8. This level of competitiongives students their first opportunity to participate in our district’s athletic program and preparesthem as student-athletes by emphasizing personal enjoyment, sportsmanship and healthycompetition, the fundamentals of team play and responsibilities of being on a team, developmentof individual athletic skills, learning of game rules, and physical conditioning.At this developmental level the focus is on the social and emotional growth of eachstudent-athlete, providing age-appropriate physical demands, and maximizing participation andindividual playing time under modified rules specific to this level. At the modified levelexclusion of students from our athletic program is not our preferred policy. However, if thenumber of students trying out for a team(s) creates a situation that is difficult to manage, posessafety issues, or is problematic because of facility considerations, reducing team roster size by“cutting” may be necessary.FreshmanThe Freshman level is designed for students in grade 9, but students in grades 7 and 8who are recommended for and pass Selection Classification are also eligible. This level ofcompetition continues to emphasize personal enjoyment, sportsmanship and healthy competition,while advancing the development of individual athletic skills, knowledge of game rules andsport-specific strategies, and physical conditioning. These components in combination withattitude, motivation and team play factor into making a team when cuts are made.This program prepares student-athletes by continuing their physical, social-emotional andmental development in a competitive environment and teaching them the importance ofbalancing team and individual player development while striving for victory. As the game’soutcome takes on greater importance, individual playing time will become more skills-based andup to the discretion of the coach, but is still impacted by league rules specific to this level.Junior VarsityThe Junior Varsity level is designed for students in grades 9 and 10, but students ingrades 7 and 8 who are recommended for and pass Selection Classification are also eligible.
