    Team Sports and Officiating

    Elective

    Grades 9-12

    Instructor:  Chris Cabe                      Contact Information:  ccabe@orr.mec.edu

    Feel free to contact me about any questions you may have about your child anytime.

    • In this class students will develop the knowledge of all the major rules and objectives of various team sports.  They will learn how to set up the field of play, run tournaments and be able to officiate game play.  The hope is that those who are willing will have the knowledge base to go out and get an umpire or officiating position in the various youth leagues around the Tri-Town area or nearby towns.  It is expected that all students want to participate in this class since it is an elective and they have chosen to take the course.

    Absences from class

    It is the student’s responsibility to make up all absences from class, whether excused or unexcused.  Make-ups can be achieved by receiving a written packet from the teacher on a particular sport and completing the assignment at home or in study.  Packets must be turned in before the end of the marking period.  Classes that are not made up are marked down as “0” until they are made up.

    Medical Excuses

    Student must have a note from doctor.  Notes from parents are not accepted.  If the child is in school, then they are well enough to participate in class.  Extenuating circumstances will be considered otherwise. 

    Student Athletes are NOT exempt from participation in class due to an athletic contest after school.  If the athlete chooses not to participate in class, then they will not be allowed to participate in their athletic contest after school.

    Lockers

    All students will be given a locker to lock up their personal belongings.  It is the student’s responsibility to lock and secure their belongings during class.
