CCSD/GHSA Interscholastic/Extracurricular Activities Code of Conduct

Participation in interscholastic/extracurricular (extracurricular) activities in Cobb County School District (District) schools is a privilege. Students participating in these activities are considered to be school leaders. They are role models who represent their school and more importantly, depict its character. With leadership comes additional responsibility and student participants must adhere to high standards of conduct. When students violate these high standards, the District may withdraw the privilege to participate in interscholastic/extracurricular activities. The purpose of this code of conduct is to establish a minimum expectation of behavior.

US LACROSSE

US LACROSSSE RULES >>>

Youth Game Initiative Under the direction of its Board of Directors, US Lacrosse has developed age-appropriate, national rules of play for youth boys’ lacrosse and youth girls’ lacrosse. As part of this initiative, US Lacrosse staff and volunteers surveyed more than 50 youth leagues that included nearly 170,000 youth players to better understand the landscape of current rules being used around the country, in addition to receiving input from individual coaches, officials, administrators, youth players and parents. Based on that research and input from the US Lacrosse Sports Science & Safety Committee, the US Lacrosse Men’s and Women’s Game Committees proposed rules that were voted on and passed by the US Lacrosse Board of Directors for implementation for the 2012 season. The new youth lacrosse rules are published in various US Lacrosse media, including printed guidebooks that are available on their site.
