Ledyard Middle School interscholastic athletic
teams exist primarily for members of the LMS student body. Practices
and competitions are, therefore, designed and scheduled as best
benefits middle school athletes. While there may be circumstances, in
accordance with the guidelines below, which would allow our town’s
elementary students some degree of participation in practices and
informal scrimmages, representing LMS in the scoring of interscholastic
games and meets is reserved for our seventh and eighth graders
Participation will be limited to athletes whose
physical and emotional readiness and experience are sufficient to
cause practices and scrimmages to be beneficial to him/herself
and LMS athletes. The decision of the LMS Principal in
consultation with the coaching staff and elementary principals on
this matter will be final.
Participants’ behavior and academic performance
must be in keeping with the standards of their elementary schools
as determined by the respective elementary school principals.
Transportation to and from practices and
competitions will be the responsibility of the athletes’
parents/guardians. Continued participation requires that
transportation be prompt and dependable.
All costs associated with participation (equipment, entry fees, etc.) will be the responsibility of parents/guardians.
Parents/guardians must submit
documentation/forms showing that all Ledyard Public Schools
medical requirements have been met.
