Thanks for all the support for the Links XC 2023!
Eligibility: In order to participate in practice, yearly physical examinations and forms as well as parent and student forms need to be completed and turned in. The 2023-2024 forms are available on our LHS athletic website under Athletic Participation Packet https://home.lps.org/athletics/packet/
Doctor’s Note Policy: A note must be provided anytime an athlete visits with a medical professional that explicitly states that the athlete is free participate in athletics. This must also state if any or no restrictions are placed on the athlete upon return to play. These notes must be returned to a coach, and the coach will return the notes to the athletic training staff. These notes must be provided for any and all visits with medical professionals (ex. dental exams/cleanings, tightening of braces, eye exams, etc.)
Weather Policy: As always, our goal will be to host practice each day. If it is raining or cold, this will be important as we do race in the rain. We understand that some of our student athletes will be coming from home, so if the uncertainty of practice occurring and length of practice with ride drop-off and pick-up creates a difficulty, athletes can be excused from practice. Student athletes who ride a bike or walk to practice may be excused based on the weather. If you or your athlete feels uncomfortable coming into the building during this time, your athlete may also be excused. Please make sure to contact one of the coaches if your athlete needs to be excused so that we know where they are at.
