Grand Haven is a member of the Ottawa-Kent Red Conference, which includes eight western Michigan high schools.

Philosophy

The Grand Haven Area Public School District believes that interscholastic sports:

  • are an integral part of the total educational process for all students. provides opportunities and experiences which assist students in their personal adjustment and development. helps meet the students' needs. provides good training habits necessary to learn sportsmanship, self-discipline, leadership and teamwork. should strive for excellence.
  • provides the spirit of competition and sportsmanship for athletic teams.

A quality athletic program is the shared responsibility of the students, staff, parents and community. It requires a supportive environment that allows for participation among students, staff, and parents. It is our expectation that our athletes hold themselves to the highest standards whether they are in the classroom, on the playing field, or out in the community. It is our expectation that our staff, coaches, and parents, also, represent themselves and the school in a very positive way when they attend any athletic event home or away. As with any successful team, we must all work together to ensure that Grand Haven athletics continue a tradition of excellence.

Grand Haven has a long history and tradition of athletic excellence. This tradition was not built overnight. It took years of dedication, commitment, and hard work by a countless number of people. As a Grand Haven Athlete you must continue to strive to up hold this high standard of excellence. Your participation in athletics is a privilege and should be treated as such.

Any time you wear the blue and gold, you are representing yourself, your family, your school, and all those that have worn these colors before you. Your behavior should be above reproach in all areas. Your conduct will be closely observed by other students, staff, parents, and the community. Failure to follow the rules established by the team and the Athletic Code will result in disciplinary actions up to and including suspension from school, suspension from athletics, expulsion from school and/or denial of future participation in athletics.

Your student has indicated a desire to participate in the high school interscholastic athletic program. Parents of student athletes also commit themselves to certain responsibilities and obligations, which are outlined in this athletic handbook. Your signature on the Athletic Code, along with the signature of your student athlete, indicates that you understand and accept those responsibilities and obligations, and agree to cooperate with school personnel in enforcing the athletic code. Parents will be required to attend informational meetings scheduled by the athletic director at the beginning of each season. Athletes will not be allowed to play until his or her parents have met with the athletic director. Individual meetings will be scheduled with the athletic director for parents who are unable to attend the informational meeting.

Parents are encouraged and expected to model good sportsmanship at all times during athletic events. Acceptable standards must be adhered to by adults. Failure to lead by example may result in removal from the event and/or future events. All parents are invited to join the Buc Boosters and help promote and support the tradition of excellence associated with Grand Haven Athletics.
