Being part of the RDHS athletic program is a privilege and we expect our student-athletes to represent our school and community in a positive and respectful manner. The Code of Conduct is in effect 12 months of the year, including the summer and non-school months. We encourage you to take a moment to sit down and review all aspects of our policy. This can be found on the school website and will be reviewed with all student-athletes each season.

Students are ineligible for all contests if they have any grades of ā€œFā€ and no more than one grade of ā€œDā€. Eligibility checks are reviewed Thursday afternoons. Eligibility is determined on a weekly basis and runs from Friday to the following Thursday.

All student-athletes must register online and provide a copy of their valid physical before they are allowed to participate in any tryouts, practices, and games.

A student athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury while participating in an extracurricular activity shall be removed from participation or competition immediately.

Any student-athlete who has been removed from an interscholastic contest for a possible concussion or head injury cannot return to that contest unless cleared to do so by a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois or a certified athletic trainer.

If not cleared to return to that contest, a student-athlete cannot return to play or practice until the student-athlete has provided her school with written clearance from a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois or a certified athletic trainer working in conjunction with a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois. While removed from all extracurricular activities, it is state and school policy that all student-athletes begin action steps for recovery through Return to Learn and Return to Play concussion management programs until the student-athlete has been entirely cleared.
