This publication is primarily designed to assist coaches, school administrators, and advisors with the everyday implementation of the Lordsburg Municipal School’s athletic program.  This handbook contains rules, regulations, and policies that have been established by the NMAA and Districts 3AA and 5AA, as well as our own school athletic policies.  Coaches and administrators are expected to be knowledgeable of these procedures/policies and to consistently apply them throughout our athletic program.  Coaches are asked to review all pertinent rules, regulations, and policies with the students in their respective programs.

LORDSBURG MUNICIPAL SCHOOLS ATHLETIC PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of the Lordsburg Municipal Schools interscholastic athletic program is that all students will be provided with a wide range of opportunities for development beyond the academic program.  We believe that athletics is an integral part of the educational process, offering many opportunities for mental, social, and physical growth.

Participation in athletics is a privilege offered to students; it is not an inherent right.  Participation in any of these programs demands a major commitment, not just during practice or competition, but at all times in order to be prepared mentally and physically to do one’s best.

Students, school personnel and community-school assistants are representatives of their school and community.  Their conduct and appearance is expected to exemplify high standards at all times.

LORDSBURG MUNICIPAL SCHOOLS ATHLETIC OBJECTIVES

It shall be a GOAL of Lordsburg Municipal Schools to provide and teach each student-athlete the following:

1.  A feeling of self-worth and an attitude of self-discipline.

2.  An opportunity to develop the full physical, mental, and emotional potential.

3.  An opportunity to compete with and against others in preparation for a competitive society.

4.  A sense of responsibility with loyalty and pride to the team, school, and community.

5.  A standard of values and ethics, which demonstrate sportsmanship, honesty, respect, and positive representation of self, school and community.
