No Hazing Policy

by Doug Bailey

What is HAZING?  DEFINITION. Hazing is any action taken or any situation created intentionally that causes embarrassment, harassment or ridicule and risks emotional and/or physical harm to members of a group or team, whether new or not, regardless of the person's willingness to participate.

From Coach Bailey (HS) and Coach Goodhand (MS):

Hazing is illegal, and it's immoral!   Saint Edward's School and our HS & MS Boys Lacrosse Program prohibits hazing under any circumstance within school borders or outside of our borders by our student-athletes.  To be clear, there is no 'right of passage' to gain access to all rights, freedoms and privileges of being a student-athlete or lacrosse player at Saint Edward's School.  Any exceptions to access to our teams are mandated and regulated by the FHSAA, NFHS and the SES Administration.  

Students earn the ability to move up and down the depth chart, as well as playing time based on the following:

1. Motor Development and Application:  utilizing one's athletic ability to practice and play using and improving lacrosse skill, concepts and strategies to enhance the teams ability to compete.  

2. Cooperation: inclusion of all teammates, mindfulness of the safety of peers and self on and off the field of play.

3. Individual Effort:  Hustle in practice drills, and practice play, as well as game situations.

4. Preparation proper attention to team standards (set by coach) for practices including lacrosse gear/equipment, promptness to practice , ready to listen and follow directions of the coaching staff.
