The physical, social and emotional well being of all athletes at UNIS is of the highest priority. There are a number of policies, procedures, and practices in place to ensure the well-being of all UNIS athletes. These are constantly being reviewed and updated based on current research and best practice recommendations.
All M3 – Tut 4 students are encouraged to try out for a sports team. There are normally between 2-3 tryouts before a team roster is selected. If a student does not make a team roster for the season, they are encouraged to enroll in an after school sports program and/or the weekend sport clinics held at UNIS.
All try out dates and venues can be found on the Athletics Page under Team Schedules and Results. Click on the Forms section to access the Athletic Release Form and Health Form. You can also contact the Director of Athletics with any questions.
Students on teams are required to attend, on average, three events per week. An event is either a practice or game during that particular season. All events are held after school during the week. The first mandatory commitment is a team registration and uniform distribution event. Students will be notified as to when this has been scheduled. On some occasions a game may be scheduled on a Saturday; these are normally special tournaments that UNIS has been invited to attend. Varsity schedules will often be more demanding than Junior Varsity and Middle School teams. Many games and some practices are scheduled off site and students will be expected to take a bus with the team and coach to these venues. Punctuality and consistent attendance are expected at all practices and games. If an athlete is unable to make it to a practice or a game, they must inform their coach immediately. If absenteeism and lateness becomes a consistent problem, their position on the team may be reviewed with the coach, parents or Athletic Director.
Students must also bring the appropriate training gear and equipment specific to the sport. If a student is unable to come to one of the tryouts, he or she must inform the coach in order to remain under consideration for the team. In addition, the student must have a health form on file in the nurse’s office. This form confirms that he or she is in good health and had a complete physical examination no more than twelve months prior to the end of the season.
