SJB Cross Country Team Rules (in addition to all school rules)


1.     No drinking alcohol, no using illegal drugs and no smoking during the season.

2.     You must attend all meets and practices unless you are sick.  This means work, family trips, drivers-ed, family weekends at colleges for siblings, moving siblings into college, college visits, SAT Prep courses or anything else, cannot interfere with your COMMITMENT TO YOUR TEAM.  

3.     If you are sick, you must notify Coach Wood by phone (516-380-4691) or e-mail ( immediately, even on school days.

4.     After two unexcused absences you will be removed from the team.  DETENTIONS are considered unexcused absences.

5.     You must be respectful to SJB, the coaches, your teammates and your competitors at all times.

6.     If you are injured, you must still attend all practices and meets.  You will either assist the coaches or do workouts that do not affect your injury like riding the bike, lifting weights and core exercises.
