All extracurricular activities sponsored by CPCS are offered as opportunities for young people to enrich their lives. All we do should be a testimony to the love of Jesus Christ, and our actions as coaches and student-athletes should reflect a strong Christian commitment. We want to provide a quality program that encourages participation for a large percentage of our student body, at the same time emphasizing the importance of self-discipline, commitment, and competing. Participating in athletics at Cedar Park Christian School is a privilege and not a right. Remember that athletes and coaches represent Christ, our school, and each other to the school that we participate against. It is our desire to present CPCS coaches that have excellent Christian character, abundant sport specific knowledge, and a desire to serve the Lord by teaching young people.
Cedar Park Christian School Athletic Eligibility policy states that a student-athlete must maintain a 2.0 minimum GPA and not be failing or have an incomplete in any course at the end of any grade evaluation period in order to continue full participation in sports. At the secondary level, grade evaluations will occur at semester, quarter and three-week intervals. If a student-athlete does not comply with the academic policy they will be ineligible to participate in contests until the next grade evaluation, and cannot be dismissed from school early in order to travel to games.
Personal appearance and dress code guidelines will be followed as stated in CPCS Student Handbook. In addition to those guidelines, the following requirements also apply: All student-athletes must wear chapel attire on game days. If a student-athlete comes to school not dressed in chapel attire they will be given until the beginning of fourth period to rectify the situation. If the situation is not rectified by then, the student-athlete will be in violation of the dress code policy. All Basketball athletes must wear chapel attire to the facility where they are playing unless dressing rooms are not available at that location.
Guidelines for Student–Athlete Conduct
1. Each participant must abide by the written rules, policies and academic requirements of Cedar Park Christian School.
2. The following are a few of the written rules of CPCS athletic programs:
a. Parents/students must give serious consideration when making a commitment to participate prior to the season.
b. Players will attend all practices and games on time. Players who know in advance that they will be absent from practice are to notify their coach as soon as they are aware of this situation. For both games and practices, student-athletes must attend classes a minimum of 3 ½ class periods in order to participate that afternoon or evening.
d. Players will demonstrate a positive image at all times during the season. You are never to do anything to discredit yourself, family, school, team, coach or God.
e. At all times during the season, including weekends and vacations; members of the Cedar Park Athletic Program will completely abstain from the use, possession or distribution of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs. Any infraction will result in severe discipline procedures with probable dismissal from the program.
Cedar Park Christian School and the Athletic Ministry are very concerned about the safety of our student-athletes before, during and after competition. All communication with athletes should be above reproach. Communication should always be directed towards the parent first. Cell phone calls to the student should never be placed unless permission has been granted by the parent or without prior approval by the Athletic Director. The second line of communication should be in the form of an appropriately worded email to the athlete with the parents included on the copy. Text messages are strictly forbidden.
