The softball team compete in the TAACS. They were the state runners up in 2017.
Please note the following information regarding the softball season.
For students to be eligible for try-outs the first day, they must have completed the paperwork on FamilyId.
If your child played a fall sport and you have completed the registration on FamilyID you will still need to login to your account and register under the spring sport your child will be playing.
Volleyball, football, cross country, and basketball athletes do not need to turn in a new physical form (unless their physical has expired – physicals expire one year to date).
Athletes must have a current physical on file with the athletic office in order to participate in sports at Macon Road. Physicals are good for one year. All athletes must use the TAACS physical forms found on the school’s website.
All athletes must be passing all subjects and maintain a C average overall. For example, an athlete can have all A’s, but if he has one F he will not be eligible to play. Also, if a student is passing all classes but has 3 C’s and 3 D’s he will not be eligible to play because he is not maintaining a C average overall. These are the Tennessee Association of Christian Schools’ (TACS) eligibility policies. All grade averages are cumulative from the first day of each semester.
If a student is off for grades, she will still be required to attend practices and home games unless instructed differently by her coach. Ineligible players are not allowed to attend away games. Some times when an athlete is off for grades, she is required by the coach to not participate in practice. If an athlete is ineligible due to grades, she is still required to wear “game day” dress to school on game days since she is still part of the team. If the coach does not deem it necessary for an ineligible athlete to attend the game competition with the team, the athlete will not be allowed to attend the athletic function.
Athletes are expected to abide by the policies in the Athletic Section of the Student Handbook.
Once you have committed to the team, you are expected to complete the season. Students who do not attend practice for any length of time for any excuse other than a medical excuse when present at school will be dismissed from the team. Athletes who do not compete in the final games of the season will be considered dismissed from the team.
We look forward to a great softball season. We appreciate your support and dedication to the MRBS athletic program.
