Life of an Athlete at Mt. Shasta High School. MARK your calendar AUGUST 18th 6:00 PM
Mt. Shasta High School looks forward to presenting the Life of an Athlete program for athletes and parents. It is quite common in this day and age to lose track of the true benefits of athletics, which are living a lifestyle that reflects commitment to a set of ideals, community pride in healthy youth, and striving for excellence. The Life of an Athlete program will bring this discussion to the forefront for the benefit of our students each season. The program requires periodic exchanges of new information to athletes and families. Athletes and parents must attend a Life of an Athlete program orientation meeting at the beginning of each athlete’s first sport of the school year. Student leaders make brief presentations, and then parents have the opportunity to ask the Athletic Director questions about the code of conduct. Copies of the new Athletic Code of Conduct are available. All meeting attendees sign a roll sheet to document that they have attended the meeting. Athletes that do not attend the meeting face limitations on participation until they attend a face-to-face meeting with the Principal. They may practice but not compete.
Date for Fall Sports: August 18th, 6:00pm

The fee for free and reduced lunch eligible athletes will be $20 perseason with a maximum yearly family cap of $100.
