||Scheduling - Athletic Events
||Date of Present Issue:||
||Date of Previous Issues:
Athletic schedules in each sport must be approved by the athletic director.
Coaches are responsible for avoiding potential conflicts caused by scheduling
competitions during final examination periods. While some conference commitments
and championship events must be scheduled during examination periods, such
scheduling will be avoided whenever possible.
When conference away competition is scheduled during examination periods,
every effort will be made to have the competition rescheduled. If rescheduling
is impossible, every effort will be made with the other institution involved
to exchange dates so that the competition may be held on the LSSU campus.
Non-conference competition away events will not be held during examination
periods. Any non-conference competition scheduled during examination periods
must be scheduled as a home contest.
Student-athletes will be responsible individually for making prior arrangements
with their instructors to complete any academic work missed due to athletic
competition. No student-athlete shall be penalized through a reduction in grade
or other punitive action for class time missed due to schedule competition.
The Intercollegiate Athletic Committee will annually review the competitive
schedule for each sport to insure compliance with the above policy. Should
an exception to the scheduling policy be necessary, it will be the responsibility
of the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee to grant that exception.
