Playing Time

If a student/athlete is selected for the team, there is no guarantee of equal playing time during the athletic contest.  Playing time is contingent upon what the individual shows in practice. The coaches will do their best to make sure that all members receive a chance to perform in a game setting. However, the decision to play a student/athlete is at the discretion of their BRMS coach.

Responsibility and Commitment

  • All practices, meetings, and games are required.
  • At the conclusion of a practice, meeting, or game players should be picked up within fifteen minutes.
    • Late pick-ups that occur more than 3 times will result in that player being cut from the team.

  • Players are expected to follow the rules as outlined in the BRMS Handbook.
  • Players must maintain good rapport with the BRMS staff and faculty, both on and off the school grounds, Conduct grades must remain at 85+.
  • A player is a role model for the student body and fans. A positive attitude and good sportsmanship should be displayed at all times toward team members, other teams, coaches, teachers, students, and officials.
    • On-field behaviors that are considered unacceptable are as follows:
      • Cursing
      • Bullying teammates, or opposing players
