SMS Viking Golf
7th and 8th Grade Boys and Girls
Coach: Mrs. Julie McLaughlin
Coach: Mr. Kris Etzel
The golf season will start after Spring Break. Information regarding sign-up and an informational meeting will be relayed through the SMS daily announcements late in February. Sign-up and an organizational meeting will take place in early March before Spring Break.
Due to golfers missing Seminar 1-2 times per week and potentially missing one or more full days of school near the end of the semester, we have a policy to encourage golfers to keep up with their grades as we near the end of the semester. Please read the following so that there will be no misunderstandings.
Coaches will check the grades of golfers every Tuesday morning. Any golfer who has an F or more than one D in a class will not be able to practice until their grades have improved. This is solely the golfer's responsibility and not that of any teacher or parent. This missed practice will count as an UNEXCUSED absence. If a golfer accumulates more than one unexcused absence, that golfer will be dismissed from the golf team for the rest of the season.
Pick Up Time:
The coaches have to wait after practice until all athletes are picked up. Therefore, please plan ahead to have a ride here on time each day practice is in session. If a parent is unable to get here by that time, there are many possibilities for carpools with the number of athletes that will be out for Golf. We do understand that emergencies happen; however, we appreciate all your efforts to get a ride here in a timely fashion. If a parent picks up later than 5:20 (or 4:50 on Tuesdays), a warning sheet requiring a parent signature will be issued after the first violation. In order for your child to return to practice, this form must be signed and brought back to Coach McLaughlin or Coach Etzel. Any days of practice missed will be unexcused absences. If a late pick-up happens a second time, it will result in the golfer being dismissed from the team.
