  1. Student-athletes should take into consideration the practice and game schedules when scheduling classes.
  2. Coaches will make every attempt to work with the class schedules in regards to practices.
  3. Student-athletes are not to miss class for any practice, fund-raiser, scrimmage, and picture taking session or any other related activities.
  4. If coaches are aware of his/her student-athletes missing class unnecessarily, they should be disciplined until the class attendance policy is adhered to.
  5. In regard to scheduled competitions, the student can ask the individual professors in advance for permission to attend the game/competition. However, if the professor cannot or will not make special arrangements, the student-athlete is advised to attend the class or be ready to accept the consequences.
  6. Remember when there is an academic-athletic conflict the academic take priority. This is one reason that we carry more than the minimum number of players on each squad.
  7. There are no REGULAR SEASON competitions scheduled during the exam weeks.
  8. Post season dates are set by regional and national offices years in advance and Aquinas has no control over these.
  9. Quad Classes - It is recommended that you not take a quad course during your season. Attendance is mandatory.
