Due to COVID 19 the AISD Board of Trustees has decided to allow physicals from the 2019-2020 school year to be valid for the 2020-2021 school year if dated after April 15, 2019. Austin High Lacrosse will follow this guidance. Does your son have a player physical on file with the AHS training staff for another sport that is dated April 15, 2019 or later? Please note if your son does not have a player physical on file, you must submit one before he will be allowed to practice with the team. (This applies to new players only. If you are a returning player, you do not need to submit a new physical as long as the one on file is dated April 15, 2019 or later. However, if you are a returning player and there has been a change to your condition since your last physical, then you will need to submit a new physical.) Please submit all physicals to Meredith Marks at meredith.marks74@gmail.com. Please read the AISD 2020-2021

CODE OF CONDUCT
Participation in Austin High School Boys Lacrosse is a privilege and not a right. Therefore, the behavior expectations set forth in the Austin High School Lacrosse Code of Conduct (LCC) incorporate and exceed the behavior expectations set forth in the Austin ISD Student Code of Conduct (SCC). The points below address how these Codes of Conduct are intertwined.
• The Head Coach and Board of Directors (Board) have the right to set high standards and to impose consequences on those students who choose to participate in Austin High School Boys Lacrosse.
• The Board will establish a Disciplinary Committee who will act on the Board’s behalf in matters related to major violations of this LCC. The composition of the Disciplinary Committee will include the Austin High Lacrosse Head Coach, one player (captain), at least one Board Member (Chair), and 2 additional adult committee members. One of these additional adult committee members will be a parent representative, and the second will be a representative of the High School.
• The LCC does not limit or restrict the authority of the coaches, directors or school administrators from imposing other consequences in addition to the penalties set forth below.
• Discipline imposed under the SCC will not limit or prevent the imposition of more stringent consequences under the LCC. Moreover, the modification of discipline imposed under the SCC or a decision to overturn the discipline imposed under the SCC shall not affect any consequences imposed under the LCC.
BEHAVIORAL RESPONSIBILITIES All students have the opportunity to participate in Austin High School Boys Lacrosse, provided they are willing to assume certain responsibilities:
• Exhibit high standards of social behavior.
• Exhibit outstanding sportsmanship and the spirit of cooperation.
• Exhibit proper respect for authority figures, including teachers, coaches, officials, and those with whom they are participating with or competing against.
• Dress appropriately at school and when attending a lacrosse function or event per the Head Coach’s determination and guidance.
• Use socially acceptable language.
• Comply with prescribed school, local, state, and federal rules and regulations.
• Demonstrate commitment to scholarship and academic achievement.
• Adhere to approved guidelines set by the Coaches or Board.
• Be a credit to themselves, their parents, their school and their community.
• Maintain a standard of honor in the classroom.
The ultimate responsibility for sustaining eligibility (behavioral and academic) rests with the individual student. Coaches and the Board have the exclusive and absolute right to decide if a student has, or has not, complied with these Behavioral Responsibilities.
VIOLATIONS A violation of the LLC will be deemed to have occurred during any lacrosse team or Austin High School function during the lacrosse season (Fall through Spring) defined as beginning with the first practice in the fall and concluding at the season ending lacrosse banquet. This LCC establishes two levels of violations that could fall under the jurisdiction of the coaches and Board. Minor infractions are subject to the discretion of the Head Coach and his staff, and major violations require referral to a Disciplinary Committee established by the Board. Examples of minor violations include:
1. Non-compliance with Team Rules; 2. Behavior during a lacrosse contest that is determined to be dangerous or demeaning to an opposing player, coach, official, spectator, or anyone connected with the function of the game; 3. Obtaining an unsportsmanlike penalty during a game; 4. Bullying or harassment behavior toward any person or team member (note: may be elevated to major violation by Head Coach if considered severe or repeated); 5. Missing or being late to a practice without first obtaining advance approval from
Coaching Staff; 6. Breaking rules during team travel events (i.e., curfew, etc.); 7. Behavior outside of lacrosse that reflects negatively on the team; 8. Demonstrating disrespect for peers, teachers, competitors, and referees; 9. Treating lacrosse facilities and equipment with disrespect; and 10. Breaking rules regarding use of social media, including:
a. Use of derogatory language or slurs based on gender, race, sexual orientation, religious, or political beliefs is prohibited,
b. Sharing Austin High School lacrosse team information (i.e.injuries, workouts, teammate performance, etc.) will not be tolerated,
c. Posting or tweeting about an opposing team, coach, player, etc. is not permitted, nor is responding to a player or fan of an opposing team (i.e., no trash talking),
d. Re-tweeting or posting other people’s comments that are in violation of team rules for social media is not permitted.

Note the list of examples above is not comprehensive. The Head Coach has the discretion to escalate any minor violation to the Board for consideration depending on the severity or nature of the violation.
Major violations include, but are not limited to: 1. Possession, use, distribution, or being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol is strictly prohibited. This includes alcohol, illegal drugs, unauthorized prescription drugs, and tobacco; 2. Suspended for cause, from school; 3. Arrested or found guilty of a criminal act, an act of vandalism, or act of violence; 4. Measured insubordination to the coaching staff; 5. Inappropriate Internet Use – Sending or posting of electronic messages (TEXT or PICTURES) that are abusive, obscene, sexually oriented, threatening, damaging to another’s reputation, or illegal, including cyber-bullying and “sexting” either on or off school property; and 6. Behavior during lacrosse game that leads to league suspension. For any violation not clearly defined above, the Head Coach and Board’s Disciplinary Committee will review individually and make a determination of how the violation should be handled. Referral to the Disciplinary Committee requires confirmation that a violation has occurred via one of the following: (1) report from a law enforcement agency; (2) personal disclosure by the participating student/parent; or (3) observed behavior by a school employee, the Austin High Lacrosse Club coaching staff, or authorized chaperones (when applicable).
ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY
A player must meet the eligibility requirements for participating in extracurricular activities, and will not be allowed to participate in any league scheduled game until those requirements are achieved. Austin High lacrosse players will share a copy of their high school report card with his coach within one week after the end of each six week grading period, after which they will not be allowed to practice until his grades have been shown to his coach. Players who do not meet the eligibility requirement are suspended from THSLL games until demonstrating the grade level has been achieved. A player may share the 3-week mid-term grade report or obtain a letter from their respective teacher once a conforming grade is achieved to allow participation in league games to continue. Players are allowed to practice, but may not play in THSLL games during his suspension, but will be excused from practice if more time for tutors, homework, etc. is needed.
CONSEQUENCES FOR CODE OF CONDUCT VIOLATIONS
All minor violations are subject to Head Coach discretion and do not require referral to the Board’s Disciplinary Committee. For Major Violations referred to the Board, the Head Coach and the Board’s Disciplinary Committee have the exclusive and absolute right to determine what suspension/expulsion penalty a student will suffer for a Code of Conduct violation. A player will have the opportunity to discuss with the Head Coach the circumstances and facts involved with a referral to the Disciplinary Committee of a major violation before a decision is made regarding any disciplinary actions being imposed. The objective of the Disciplinary Committee is to be fair and consistent with each major violation case that is brought before it. The framework for the consequences to be administered for major violation is as follows: 1. First Offense
a. One (1) to three (3) game suspension. While on team suspension, the student will continue to practice with the team unless specified differently by the Head Coach. b. A student who self reports to his Head Coach may receive a lesser suspension if agreed by the Head Coach (first offense only). c. At the discretion of the Head Coach or Board’s Disciplinary Committee, a student may not be allowed to travel on overnight lacrosse/team trips for a period of up to one year. d. The student may be removed from or not allowed to be a captain of the team. 2. Second Offense
a. Three (3) to six (6) game suspension. While on team suspension, the student will continue to practice with the team unless specified differently by the Head Coach. 3. Third Offense
a. Upon a third violation of the LCC, the student shall be suspended and prohibited from participating in team activities for the remainder of the lacrosse season. Suspensions may be combined with other conditions such as additional conditioning, volunteer service, or other consequences as determined by the Head Coach and the Disciplinary Committee. Violations are wiped clean at the end of the season, but prior year discipline issues will be considered in determining conditions and consequences in subsequent years.

NOTIFICATION OF DISCIPLINARY ACTION
Notification of a major violation will be made to the player and parent/legal guardian within 72 hours after confirmation that a violation has occurred (and referral to the Board). Following review of the case by the Head Coach with the player, the Disciplinary Committee will meet and determine the consequence/punishment to be imposed, after which the Head Coach will meet with the player and parent/legal guardian and obtain written acknowledgement that will:
(1) Cite the reason for the suspension or consequence; (2) Indicate the number of games suspended and any additional provisions/conditions; (3) Provide notice of opportunity to appeal; and (4) Recognition of consequence for any subsequent violation(s).
APPEAL PROCEDURE A player may appeal a suspension of eligibility or ruling of the disciplinary committee within five (5) school days of the receipt, in writing, of the notification of offense and penalty from the Disciplinary Committee. The appeal must be in writing and must be delivered to the President of the Board of Directors. The President will preside over the appeal. The appeals panel will consist of the entire Board of Directors (voting members), and will not include any coaches or players. The date, time, and location of the meeting will be agreed upon by the members of the panel as well as the player, and the player’s parent/guardian. A speedy resolution is desired. Although player’s parents are encouraged to attend the meeting, their attendance is not Mandatory. The format for the appeal meeting will be as follows:
• Player presents his case to the panel.
• Open comments and questions shall be allowed by all parties attending the review.
• The decision of the panel shall be final, and will be forwarded to the athlete and parent/guardian within three (3) school days of the meeting.
AHS BOYS LACROSSE TRAVEL POLICY

Transportation to out of town games will be provided by the parents of the players unless previous arrangements for group transportation have been arranged by the Board. 3. Team members will abide by the instructions of any adult driver. The driver’s presence is for trip efficiency and team member safety. Drivers will not be held responsible for the actions and behavior of the players. 4. Overnight trips are a team event.

TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL LACROSSE LEAGUE (THSLL) RULES
Egregious behavior (abusive, profane, or violent) by THSLL administrators, representatives, coaches, players, or fans that is not in keeping with the League’s safety and/or sportsmanship principles and code of conduct may result in such administrator, representative, coach, player or fan being suspended or expelled from the League and/or prohibited from attending League functions. This includes behavior and/or actions not in conformance with the Purpose of the Texas High School Lacrosse League as stipulated in the Texas Scholastic Lacrosse Association, Inc. (TSLA) Bylaws. A player who is ejected from a game due to unsportsmanlike conduct will serve a one game suspension. The game served will be the next scheduled game on the THSLL website at the time of the ejection. A player who plays on both JV and Varsity will serve the suspension in the next Varsity game he is eligible to play in on the schedule. If the ejection occurs in the final game of the THSLL season, or post season, the player will serve the suspension in the first scheduled District game the following THSLL season. For player violations related to actions or behavior on the field (i.e., unsportsmanlike conduct) that lead to suspension handed down by the league (THSLL) office, the Disciplinary Committee will review the case, and may impose consequences in addition to those enforced by THSLL.
No alcoholic beverages, intoxicating substances or intoxicated individuals are allowed at any THSLL functions. Punishments shall be decided by the Board and may include sanctions, penalties, suspensions or expulsions of individuals, Teams, or Programs from the League or any combination of any of the foregoing.

CONCLUSION AND SIGNATURE OF UNDERSTANDING
Breaches to the LCC will result in penalties as outlined. No fees will be returned to any player who is suspended or expelled from the team as a result of conduct violation. Each player and his parents/guardians are asked to signify their agreement and understanding of this LCC, that they agree to abide by it, and that the Coaches and Board of Directors of the Austin High School Boys Lacrosse organization have the authority to enforce it.

By selecting "Agree" below, I acknowledge that I have read the Austin High School Boys Lacrosse Code of Conduct and understand the rules, expectations, and consequences for violations of said document.

AUSTIN HIGH SCHOOL BOYS LACROSSE
INFECTIOUS DISEASE WAIVER OF LIABILITY, RELEASE OF CLAIMS, INDEMNITY AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT

In consideration of being allowed to participate in any and all Austin High School Boys Lacrosse (“AHS Lax”) practices, skill sessions, scrimmages, games, tournaments, related events and activities (collectively referred to herein as, “Activities” and individually as an “Activity”), the undersigned acknowledges, understands, and agrees to all of the following agreements and provisions contained in this Infectious Disease Waiver of Liability, Release of Claims, Indemnity and Hold Harmless Agreement (the “Agreement”):

1. The novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact and is wide-spread across the United States of America, including the State of Texas.

2. I understand the hazards of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases such as MRSA and influenza and am familiar with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) guidelines regarding COVID-19. I acknowledge and understand that the circumstances regarding COVID-19 are changing from day to day and that, accordingly, the guidelines of the CDC, State of Texas, the University Interscholastic League, Travis County (and surrounding counties), along with the rules and regulations of the owners and leaseholders of the premises where AHS Lax conducts its Activities, including West Austin Youth Association and Austin Independent School District (the “Facility Owners”) are regularly modified and updated, and I accept full responsibility for familiarizing myself and complying with the most recent updates of such rules, regulations and guidelines.

3. I understand participation in any or all AHS Lax Activities includes possible exposure to and illness from infectious diseases including but not limited to COVID-19, MRSA, and influenza. While AHS Lax has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, AHS Lax cannot guarantee that you, your player or your family members will not become infected with COVID-19 or any other infectious disease. Further, attending any AHS Lax Activities could increase your (parent/guardian) risk, your family members’ risk and your player’s risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other infectious disease. While compliance with AHS Lax’s, the CDC’s, the State of Texas’, and Travis County’s rules, regulations and guidelines may reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other infectious disease, the risk of serious illness and death does exist.

4. To the best of my knowledge, my player and myself are of good health, are not immune compromised and can fully participate in any AHS Lax Activities as a player and/or spectator. Notwithstanding the risks associated with COVID-19 or any other infectious disease, which I readily acknowledge, I hereby voluntarily choose to participate in any and all AHS Lax Activities as a spectator and/or player and to enter any and all premises used by AHS Lax for its Activities knowing that any of the Activities may be hazardous to me. I VOLUNTARILY ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RISKS OF LOSS, DAMAGE, PERSONAL LOSS, ILLNESS, INJURY OR DEATH FROM COVID-19, OR ANY OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASE, THAT MAY BE SUSTAINED BY ME, MY FAMILY MEMBERS OR MY PLAYER AS A RESULT OF BEING ENGAGED IN ANY AHS LAX ACTIVITIES, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF AHS LAX, ITS MEMBERS, BOARD, OFFICERS, COACHES, CONTRACTORS, VOLUNTEERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, OR BY THE FACILITY OWNERS (COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO HEREIN AS “RELEASEES” OR INDIVIDUALLY AS “RELEASEE”) OR OTHERWISE.

5. In consideration for participating in or spectating any AHS Lax Activities and for other valuable consideration which is hereby acknowledged, I hereby RELEASE, WAIVE, HOLD HARMLESS, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE RELEASEES from any and all liability, claims, costs, demands, actions and causes of action whatsoever arising out of or related to any loss, damage, illness or injury, including death, that may be sustained by me, my family members or my player FROM COVID-19, OR ANY OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES, AS A RESULT OF BEING ENGAGED IN ANY OF THE AHS LAX ACTIVITIES, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE.

6. I shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the RELEASEES from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, judgments, losses, costs or expenses of any nature whatsoever including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements, whether of in-house or outside counsel, and whether or not an action is brought, on appeal or otherwise, arising from or out of, or relating to, directly or indirectly, an infection of myself, my player or my family members with COVID-19, or any other infectious disease, illness or injury.

7. It is my expressed intent that this Agreement shall bind the members of my family and spouse (if any), if I am alive, and my heirs, assigns and personal representative, if I am not alive, and shall be deemed as a RELEASE, WAIVER, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE the above RELEASEES.

8. I understand that AHS Lax (or any RELEASEE) will not be responsible for any medical costs associated with any illness from COVID-19 or any other infectious disease that I, my player or my family members may sustain as a result of participating in any AHS Lax Activities.

9. I HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY DISPUTE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS WAIVER WAS EXPRESSLY NEGOTIATED AND IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT TO THE PERMISSION GRANTED BY AHS LAX AND RELEASEES TO BE ON PREMISES AND TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITIES.

10. I hereby further agree that this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas.

11. Electronic, email or facsimile signatures on this Agreement shall be construed for all purposes as original signatures.

12. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during this Agreement, the legality, validity, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby, and in lieu of each such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision there shall be automatically added, as part of this Agreement, a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision as may be possible and be legal, valid and enforceable.

13. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts with the same effect as if all parties hereto had signed the same document. All such counterparts shall be construed together and shall constitute one instrument, but in making proof hereof it shall only be necessary to produce one such counterpart.

[SIGNATURE PAGE FOLLOWS]

BY SIGNING THIS Infectious Disease Waiver of Liability, Release of Claims, Indemnity and Hold Harmless Agreement, I ACKNOWLEDGE AND REPRESENT THAT I have read the foregoing Agreement, understand it and sign it voluntarily as my own free act and deed; no oral representations, statements or inducements, apart from the foregoing written agreement, have been made; If under age eighteen (18), a parent or guardian must sign indicating their assumption of legal and financial responsibility for my participation in any of the Activities; and I execute this Agreement for full, adequate and complete consideration fully intending to be bound by same.

Austin High lacrosse players will share a copy of their high school report card with his coach within one week after the end of each six week grading period, after which they will not be allowed to practice until his grades have been shown to his coach. Players who do not meet the eligibility requirement are suspended from THSLL games until demonstrating the grade level has been achieved.

Players are allowed to practice, but may not play in THSLL games during his suspension, but will be excused from practice if more time for tutors, homework, etc. is needed.
CONSEQUENCES FOR CODE OF CONDUCT VIOLATIONS
All minor violations are subject to Head Coach discretion and do not require referral to the Board’s Disciplinary Committee. For Major Violations referred to the Board, the Head Coach and the Board’s Disciplinary Committee have the exclusive and absolute right to determine what suspension/expulsion penalty a student will suffer for a Code of Conduct violation. A player will have the opportunity to discuss with the Head Coach the circumstances and facts involved with a referral to the Disciplinary Committee of a major violation before a decision is made regarding any disciplinary actions being imposed. The objective of the Disciplinary Committee is to be fair and consistent with each major violation case that is brought before it. The framework for the consequences to be administered for major violation is as follows: 1. First Offense
a. One (1) to three (3) game suspension. While on team suspension, the student will continue to practice with the team unless specified differently by the Head Coach. b. A student who self reports to his Head Coach may receive a lesser suspension if agreed by the Head Coach (first offense only). c. At the discretion of the Head Coach or Board’s Disciplinary Committee, a student may not be allowed to travel on overnight lacrosse/team trips for a period of up to one year. d. The student may be removed from or not allowed to be a captain of the team. 2. Second Offense
a. Three (3) to six (6) game suspension. While on team suspension, the student will continue to practice with the team unless specified differently by the Head Coach. 3. Third Offense
a. Upon a third violation of the LCC, the student shall be suspended and prohibited from participating in team activities for the remainder of the lacrosse season. Suspensions may be combined with other conditions such as additional conditioning, volunteer service, or other consequences as determined by the Head Coach and the Disciplinary Committee. Violations are wiped clean at the end of the season, but prior year discipline issues will be considered in determining conditions and consequences in subsequent years.

NOTIFICATION OF DISCIPLINARY ACTION
Notification of a major violation will be made to the player and parent/legal guardian within 72 hours after confirmation that a violation has occurred (and referral to the Board). Following review of the case by the Head Coach with the player, the Disciplinary Committee will meet and determine the consequence/punishment to be imposed, after which the Head Coach will meet with the player and parent/legal guardian and obtain written acknowledgement that will:
(1) Cite the reason for the suspension or consequence; (2) Indicate the number of games suspended and any additional provisions/conditions; (3) Provide notice of opportunity to appeal; and (4) Recognition of consequence for any subsequent violation(s).
APPEAL PROCEDURE A player may appeal a suspension of eligibility or ruling of the disciplinary committee within five (5) school days of the receipt, in writing, of the notification of offense and penalty from the Disciplinary Committee. The appeal must be in writing and must be delivered to the President of the Board of Directors. The President will preside over the appeal. The appeals panel will consist of the entire Board of Directors (voting members), and will not include any coaches or players. The date, time, and location of the meeting will be agreed upon by the members of the panel as well as the player, and the player’s parent/guardian. A speedy resolution is desired. Although player’s parents are encouraged to attend the meeting, their attendance is not Mandatory. The format for the appeal meeting will be as follows:
• Player presents his case to the panel.

While compliance with AHS Lax’s, the CDC’s, the State of Texas’, and Travis County’s rules, regulations and guidelines may reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other infectious disease, the risk of serious illness and death does exist.

5. In consideration for participating in or spectating any AHS Lax Activities and for other valuable consideration which is hereby acknowledged, I hereby RELEASE, WAIVE, HOLD HARMLESS, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE RELEASEES from any and all liability, claims, costs, demands, actions and causes of action whatsoever arising out of or related to any loss, damage, illness or injury, including death, that may be sustained by me, my family members or my player FROM COVID-19, OR ANY OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES, AS A RESULT OF BEING ENGAGED IN ANY OF THE AHS LAX ACTIVITIES, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE.

6. I shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the RELEASEES from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, judgments, losses, costs or expenses of any nature whatsoever including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements, whether of in-house or outside counsel, and whether or not an action is brought, on appeal or otherwise, arising from or out of, or relating to, directly or indirectly, an infection of myself, my player or my family members with COVID-19, or any other infectious disease, illness or injury.

7. It is my expressed intent that this Agreement shall bind the members of my family and spouse (if any), if I am alive, and my heirs, assigns and personal representative, if I am not alive, and shall be deemed as a RELEASE, WAIVER, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE the above RELEASEES.

11. Electronic, email or facsimile signatures on this Agreement shall be construed for all purposes as original signatures.

12. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during this Agreement, the legality, validity, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby, and in lieu of each such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision there shall be automatically added, as part of this Agreement, a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision as may be possible and be legal, valid and enforceable.

13. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts with the same effect as if all parties hereto had signed the same document.
