  • Objective: All student athletes will pass all classes every six weeks.
  • Note: When possible 7th grade athletes should schedule tutorials after school and 8th grade athletes should schedule tutorials before school.
  • Coaches can be reached either by phone or email.
  • Usually, incoming callers will need to leave a message.
  • The coach will return the call during his or her conference period.
  • Conference periods vary throughout the day.
  • Whenever possible, all calls and emails will be responded to within 24 hours.
  • Appointments can be made during the coach’s conference period.
  • Coaches are only able to discuss your son or daughter with you. Coaches are not be able to discuss other athletes/students with you.
  • All athletes are expected to attend and participate in our scheduled games. If there is a conflict with an outside organization such as select sports, we expect the athlete to attend NRMS games.

Procedure for resolving issues/concerns:

Example: Athlete has a question or conflict with a coach about playing time.

  • Athlete and/or parent needs to talk with that coach first.
  • If conflict is not resolved, athlete and parent should schedule a time to meet with Coach Compton/boys or Coach Catoe/girls.
  • If conflict is still not resolved, athlete and parent should schedule a meeting with Ms. Marty Blowers, Assistant Principal.
  • Next step – Make a appointment with Steve Ellis, Principal.
  • Next step – Willa Gipson, Birdville ISD Athletic Director.
  • All North Ridge Athletes must pass all classes each six weeks in order to maintain eligibility. This is a University Interscholastic League rule.
  • If an athlete fails one or more classes during a six week grading period, he/she is ineligible to play for 3 weeks.
  • If the athlete is passing all classes at the 3 week progress reporting time of the next six weeks, he/she will regain eligibility.
  • Although an ineligible athlete is not permitted to play in games during the ineligibility period, the athlete is still required to participate in all practices.
  • Athletic uniforms can be purchased in Athletics for $25.00 a set.
  • In October we will be taking sweat shirt/pants order for the winter. Sweats will cost $45 as set.
  • Next year (2012-2013) all athletic and PE apparel will be available online. A link will be provided on the NRSM website sometime in the spring, along with other pertinent information.
  • Every athlete will be dressed in the proper athletic uniform everyday including days when the athlete may not be able to actively participate. No exceptions.
  • Failure to dress out will result in the loss of points toward the athlete’s six weeks Physical Education grade:
    • 1st No Dress = minus 15 points
    • 2nd No Dress = minus 10 points
    • 3rd No Dress = minus 10 points (Athlete fails the six weeks)
  • Every athlete must have a completed current physical form, signed by a physician and parent, on file prior to being able to compete in any sport activity.
