2018-2019 VISION CHARTER SCHOOL SPORTS PROGRAM:
Vision Charter School administration and board have listened to the student and parent requests for competitive sports. We recognize the value in students connecting with a group of other students to achieve a goal. We acknowledge and value the direct correlation of sports with the positive development of character traits including perseverance, hard work, respect, dedication, caring, fairness, courage, responsibility, trustworthiness, and teamwork. We believe having a trusted adult advocate such a coach is a source of strength. The priority of sports at Vision Charter School will be building positive character traits, leadership skills, and athletic skills. Students will be required to maintain C’s in all classes to play in all organized sports games. Academics will remain the priority at Vision Charter School. We will retain our focus on creating Well Educated, Respectful Citizen Leaders in a K-12th grade Science and Arts Focused School. Vision Charter will make every effort to prevent conflicts of sports practices with drama and music performances in addition to science fairs & competitions. We are committed to working with students to ensure they are able to participate in the Arts & Sciences as desired and still be a part of the Athletics Program at Vision Charter. We are excited to have Robert McDougall as the Vision Charter School Athletic Director. Please contact Mr. McDougall firstname.lastname@example.org with any sports related questions or concerns. High School Students will be charged a $50 fee to participate in each extra- curricular IHSAA Competitive Sport not to exceed $100 per year. Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from practices and local games/tournaments. Bus transportation will be provided for extensive travel. Parents will be responsible for some or all of the uniform depending upon the sport. **Swim Team has its own fee schedule that does not follow the same fee structure listed above. Students who pay swim fees equal to or in excess of $100 will not be charged a fee to participate in other IHSAA sports throughout the year. *Email Mrs. OldenKamp at email@example.com to request alternative arrangements to cover extra-curricular fees.
