First offense: 8 game suspension/ ½ the season, Second offense: Full-season game-suspension Deserved yellow and red card violations, due to the lack of continuity by referees, a carded player may receive no additional reprimands or may receive a suspension up to 5 games. All student-athletes are expected to keep a “C” or better in all classes. If grades drop below the cut-off, the student-athlete will be asked to improve their grades by getting help during practice and game times, until the grade has reached the “C” level. That player is disallowed to play in any games until the grade has been improved. You are each responsible to check the bulletin board daily You are responsible for apparel checked out to youPlease keep in mind when you use social media, that you are still a representative of our soccer program and Linn-Mar as a whole. While it may not be your intention to speak on behalf of all involved, it can be interpreted that way. A good rule of thumb is not to type anything that you wouldn’t say to someone’s face. Please notify the caching staff if you are involved in other activities whether you think they will conflict with Linn-Mar Soccer or not. All significant injuries must be checked and cleared by the trainer, Jill Hendricks, before an athlete can return to participation.
