ATHLETIC TRANSPORTATION

Transportation policies outlined below exist for the safety of all students and liability for families.

 

Shuttle Bus:  A shuttle bus is available after school to provide transportation to off-campus practice facilities such as HealthEast Sports Center (boys’ and girls’ soccer), Afton-Lakeland Elementary School (tennis) and St. Croix Prep Academy (Academy Force Football).  Transportation is NOT provided back to NLA from these facilities with the exception of tennis which will return to NLA after practice.  Students with a license and a vehicle may drive themselves to practices but should NOT transport other students besides family members.

High School Games: Transportation is provided to most away games when the team leaves shortly after the school day.  Athletes may ride home with their parents after a game but must check with their coach.  Occasionally there may not be a bus home from a game but that will be communicated ahead of time, if the situation arises. 

Middle School Games:  Transportation is provided to most away games that begin earlier than 5:30 pm.  Parents will be responsible for their student’s transportation to any away games that begin 5:30 or later or on weekends.  There will NOT be transportation back to NLA after any middle school games.

  1. A student does not make a team after the tryout process.
  2. A student elects to not participate on a team or suffers a season-ending injury within the first 7 days from the start of the season.

50% Refund will be given when:
