College


JETS STUDENT ATHLETE CODE OF CONDUCT All Jackson College student-athletes should conduct themselves in an appropriate manner at all times. Respect for one’s institution, teammates, coaches, opponents and officials should be emphasized at all times. Each student-athlete accepts responsibility above and beyond that of the general student body with regard to his/her conduct as a representative of the College. It is a privilege, not a right, to be a member of the Jackson College athletic program. Therefore, the student-athlete is held to a higher standard. The Athletic Department requires the following guidelines be adhered to by all members of the Jackson College athletic program. The following regulations, as well as those listed in the College’s Rights and Responsibilities Handbook, shall apply to all student-athletes.

Representing Jackson College An athlete is seen in the public eye more often than the average student. Remember, it is a privilege to be a student-athlete, but it is also a responsibility to represent the College with pride and dignity. Failure to do this will result in disciplinary action from the coach and/or athletic director.

Dress & Appearance Proper attire is required. Moderation and good taste are always expected. Please discuss this with your coach and/or athletic director should you have questions or concerns. Please refer to individual team rules for further clarification. When traveling with the team you are not allowed to wear other college apparel.

Responsibility As an athlete at Jackson College, you assume a high degree of responsibility for your conduct. You are representing not only yourself and your team, but you are representing Jackson College. Therefore, you are responsible for your actions which include accepting the decisions of your coaches and the athletic director. You are encouraged to discuss any matter of concern with your coach. The door is always open for your questions, and you will receive an honest, direct response to your concerns.

Academics It is the responsibility of each student-athlete to maintain a good academic standing. Each athlete must meet the eligibility requirements established by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), and those specific to Jackson College. This includes making satisfactory academic progress and maintaining full-time enrollment during the fall and winter semesters. Failure to meet these requirements will result in immediate removal of the student-athlete from the athletic program, carried out by the athletic director. If NJCAA standards are less rigorous than our institutional standards, we will opt to enforce our institutional academic policies. Any student that is in need of developmental courses should take them within the first year of school, as outlined in the College catalog. Please see the eligibility section of the Student-Athlete Handbook for information on minimum grade point averages.

Tutoring Tutors located in the Center for Student Success (CSS) will be available for all Jackson College students all semester free of charge. If at any time a student-athlete wishes to seek the assistance of a tutor, they may go directly to the CSS, or they can ask for assistance in the Athletic Department, and a tutoring appointment at the CSS will be set up.

1


Travel Policy Each student-athlete will travel to and from contests with College approved transportation only. If a student-athlete wishes to receive alternate transportation, he/she must receive approval from his/her head coach and athletic director.

Fieldhouse Usage Athletes are only one group that uses the Victor Cuiss Fieldhouse, and many times that usage must be shared with instructional classes, intramural programs, community as well as other teams. We expect athletes to act in a mature manner at all times and not create a situation that disrupts or disturbs other programs. This includes creating excessive noise during classes, misusing weight room equipment, failing to comply with the direction of weight technicians or other College faculty and staff and wearing spikes in the fieldhouse. Violators will be subject to disciplinary action imposed by the head coach and/or athletic director.

Community Service Requirements As an institution of higher learning it is our goal that you become not only a successful athlete but a successful member of the community. It is important for us to lead you in the right direction to ensure that you are given the best opportunities possible. Because you’re a student-athlete you are put into many leadership roles that may provide guidance to peers, other members of society, as well as youth. All Jackson College athletic teams participate in at least one community service projects, per semester per team. Coaches will be responsible for monitoring and reporting to the athletic airector on all community service.

Use of College Property Each athlete is expected to use College property or equipment in the manner for which it is intended. Uniforms and practice gear will be issued to each athlete and must be returned at the end of the season. Failure to do so will result in a “hold” on all records for that student. A hold will remain until the College is compensated for the lost/damaged property. All equipment, game, practice, and/or travel uniforms are property of Jackson College and at no time should student-athletes abuse or mistreat them. This includes, but is not limited to, sport specific, the weight room equipment, locker rooms, and/or athletic training equipment. All of these items are considered property of Jackson College. Student-athletes are expected to return all issued equipment upon completion of the athletic season and/or academic year. Any destruction of College property or other property will not be tolerated. Violators will be subject to the College disciplinary process, as well as the local legal system.

Medical Examination A medical examination is required of all prospective athletes prior to being eligible to participate in tryouts, practice or competition in an intercollegiate sport. Injury requiring a physician’s treatment requires a release prior to the student-athlete being permitted to play. All physicals must be completed before first date of practice. If a student is injured during the year they must consult with Jackson College’s athletic trainer in the Jackson College Athletic Training Office. Failure to comply, or providing incomplete information, will result in inability to participate in any Jackson College athletic activity until all information is received in the Athletic Training Office.

2


Personal Medical Insurance All student-athletes are required to carry his/her own personal medical insurance. Before he/ she participates in athletics at Jackson College, a copy of that insurance must be on file with the Jackson College Athletic Training Office. Students who are currently uninsured should contact the Athletic Office for assistance.

Athletes in Housing Jackson College’s intercollegiate athletic program shall be administered in accordance with the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and Jackson College policies/guidelines and shall reflect/respect the College’s commitment to our local community (i.e., tri-county service area). Athletes meeting the housing acceptance criteria are required to reside within college housing unless their permanent residence is within a 50-mile radius of the Central Campus. Student athletes admitted to the College must submit their application for housing prior to August 1 for the fall semester. The College’s sports program and student-athletes must meet academic and eligibility requirements established by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) rule and requirements.

Athletic Training A certified athletic trainer will evaluate intercollegiate athletic injuries. Jackson College athletic training room is open to all student-athletes who are members of intercollegiate teams only. Below is a brief list of Athletic Training Room Rules and Policies: • Report all injuries and illnesses to our athletic trainer in a timely manner. • All acute injuries must be reported to the athletic training staff within 24 hours. • If an injury should occur prior or after the athletic training room hours, contact the first responder unit by dialing 911 for emergencies only. • Be on time for treatment, appointments, etc. • The athletic training office reserves the right to refuse treatment if a student-athlete is late. • Student-athletes are not allowed to operate any equipment in the athletic training room. • Do not bring playing equipment in the athletic training room. • Do not remove supplies from the athletic training room without permission from the athletic trainer. • No food or drinks are allowed in the athletic training room. • Allow time prior to practice and contest for treatments, taping, etc. The athletic training room staff will not be responsible for the student-athlete being tardy to practice due to treatment in the athletic training room. • Any changes in medical history, insurance coverage, or ability to participate should be reported to the athletic trainer.

Required Documents The following documents can be found at: http://jacksoncollegejets.com/information/athletic_training • Insurance Information Form - Please fill out form completely and attach a copy of your insurance card(s) (front & back). Please be aware that Jackson College requires each student-athlete to have primary health insurance. Student-athletes that do not return an insurance information form or provide proof of existing insurance coverage will not be able to participate in any practices or games until they do so. • Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Examination Form - Please answer ALL medical history questions honestly and accurately. Please be certain to provide signature(s) on bottom of physical form. This form can be completed with your primary care physician or at the Jackson College Health Clinic. • Medical Consent to Treat and Release of Information Form - Please read form carefully, then print, sign and date form.

Insurance Information Jackson College requires that all student-athletes must have primary health insurance and provide a copy to the Athletic Training Office. Jackson College maintains a secondary insurance policy that aids in the payment of bills due to athletic injuries. To be eligible for this coverage, an injury must occur as a direct result of participation in varsity athletics. THIS POLICY, HOWEVER, IS SECONDARY TO OR IN EXCESS OF, PERSONAL FAMILY MEDICAL INSURANCE COVERAGE, and covers only injuries and accidents resulting from direct participation in the intercollegiate athletics program from the first to last date a student-athlete is required to be on campus for participation in a covered event. Failure to report any injury in a timely manner may result in Jackson College’s secondary insurance to deny any claim.

Alcohol and Substance Use and Abuse Student-athletes at Jackson College are held to a higher behavioral and conduct standard in exchange for their participation in all NJCAA athletics. Jackson College athletes are role models in and around the community, within their fellow teams and the College. The student-athlete’s behavior and conduct can be seen as a direct reflection of the community, the College and/or the team, and should not reflect negatively on any of these groups. While the possession and consumption of alcohol may be legal for some athletes, its consumption nonetheless could be injurious to the health and well-being of the athlete, as well as increase the risk of injury. Consequently, the Jackson College alcohol policy has serious consequences for the use of alcohol by student-athletes, whether on- or off-campus.

Policy During a student-athlete’s career at Jackson College as established by the NJCAA, they shall obey all state and local laws related to possession and consumption of alcohol. Jackson College does not allow consumption of alcohol, by student-athletes, anywhere on its premises. All student-athletes, regardless of whether they are in season or out of season, are subject to this process. If a violation occurs after the season has been completed, the athlete will serve their suspension at the beginning of the next season.

Student-athletes (SA) are required to complete a designated amount of community service hours (these must be separate from team scheduled events).

Failure to complete community service hours within designated time frame will result in student moving to a second offense. • Second offense - Any ticketed misdemeanor alcohol offense and/or second offense.

Jackson College’s coaching staff and administrative staff shall enforce this policy.

Jackson College Banned Substance & Nutritional Substances Jackson College athletic department follows the NCAA banned substance guidelines for athletes. Many nutritional/dietary supplements contain NCAA banned substances. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not strictly regulate the supplement industry; therefore purity and safety of nutritional/dietary supplements can’t be guaranteed. It is for this reason that taking supplements may lead to a positive drug test. The use of supplements is at the student-athlete’s own risk. Student-athletes should contact a Jackson College certified athletic trainer for further information. The NCAA banned substance list can be found at: http://www. ncaa.com/content/ncaa-banned-drug-list

Drug Testing The purpose of the Athletic Department drug testing policy is to educate student-athletes regarding the health and safety hazards inherent with the abuse and misuse of drugs. The Athletic Department promotes fairness and integrity of intercollegiate athletics at Jackson College and provides student-athletes with a reason to “say no” to drug use through education.

5


Testing The Athletic Department reserves the right to test current student-athletes each student-athlete must sign the Jackson College Student Athlete Handbook annually. If the student-athlete is a minor, a parent or legal guardian’s signature will be required. Any student-athlete refusing to sign the drug testing consent forms will be ineligible for intercollegiate participation at Jackson College.

Drugs Identified Through Testing Jackson College Drug Testing Policy will follow the guidelines of the NCAA regarding banned substances for intercollegiate athletes. The list includes the following street drugs and controlled substances, as well as over-the-counter medications: anabolic agents; stimulants, alcohol and masking agents such as diuretics, peptide hormones and analogues, anti-estrogens and Beta-2 Agonists. The student-athlete shall be held accountable for all drugs within the banned drug class additional examples of banned drugs can be found at www.ncaa.org/drugtesting. Information about ingredients in medications and nutritional/dietary supplements can be obtained by contacting the Resource Exchange Center, REC, 877-202-0769 or www. drugfreesport.com/rec password ncaa1, ncaa2 or ncaa3. Information on these or any other website is not a substitute for obtaining approval for consuming any substance.

Testing Protocol The Jackson College Drug Testing Policy will be used to screen athletes and to deter the improper use or abuse of banned substances. Student-athletes are subject to random drug screening for banned substances including “performance enhancing” substances and/or illegal drugs. Studentathletes may also be tested when there is evidence of suspected use of banned substances. All student-athletes who are listed on an official Jackson College roster and who have signed their Jackson College Student Athlete Handbook may be tested.

Notification Once a student-athlete has been selected he or she shall be notified within 24 hours prior to the time of testing. The student-athlete is required to report to the designated location at the time of the drug test. Failure to report will result in a “no show” and be equivalent to a “non-negative” or “positive” test result.

Specimen Collection The following protocol will be used for collecting specimen. • When the student-athlete arrives for the drug-testing procedure they will required to provide valid picture identification and asked to only wear a t-shirt and gym shorts into the collection area. • Once the specimen is collected the student-athlete will provide the specimen to the observer/collector. At which time it will be sealed. The student-athlete is required to initial the specimen to certify that it is sealed.

Appeal of “positive” test A student-athlete may appeal a “positive” test within 24 hours of notification. A request to have a B specimen tested shall be written and received by the director of athletics within the required

6


24-hours. The student-athlete will be required to pay for the B specimen testing. This payment must be received by the athletic department prior to B specimen being tested.

Effects of Positive Test – Sanctions Upon notification of a positive drug test, the following sanctions will be administered by the Jackson College Athletic Department. • First Positive Result: Student-athlete shall be immediately suspended for a minimum of 10 percent of their entire competitive season (excluding exhibition contests). The percentage shall be rounded to the nearest whole number (> .5 rounded up, < .5 rounded down). • Second Positive Result: The student-athlete shall be immediately suspended for a minimum of 50 percent of his or her entire competitive season (excluding exhibition contests).

Social Media Conduct The Jackson College Athletic Department understands that many of its student athletes have active accounts on social media networks, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube. The College supports students’ use of these sites, providing that athletes uphold the following modes of conduct. Student-athletes are expected to abide by the community standards established by the social media networks they participate in and Jackson College’s Student Code of Conduct and studentathlete handbook regulations. Student-athletes should not post photos of themselves or others that may be considered inappropriate or offensive. This includes file sharing and photo and/ or video streaming. They must also not post photos which might depict Jackson College, its students, affiliates, or identifiable activities in a negative light. Absolutely no information may be posted which may violate Jackson College’s Code of Conduct, or any regulations in this StudentAthlete handbook, in either language or connotation. This includes all inappropriate or offensive comments or posts. Please keep in mind that you are representing Jackson College and the Athletic Department at all times, both on- and off-campus. Your conduct in any public forum is inevitably monitored by the public eye. We ask that student-athletes behave accordingly and uphold the standards of the College to the best of their abilities. A student is susceptible to suspension, dismissal, or other disciplinary measures if he or she violates the above Social Media Conduct Policy for student-athletes.

Eligibility Rules Student-athletes must meet the guidelines set forth by Jackson College in order to participate in athletics as well as receive grant-in-aid scholarship money. Students that meet the Jackson College standards will, by default, meet the eligibility guidelines set forth by the Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) and the National Junior College Athletic

7


Association (NJCAA). Since the College’s internal standards for participation and scholarship eligibility are more stringent than those of the NJCAA or MCCAA, we will enforce our institutional standards when determining eligibility. Student-athletes, who meet only NJCAA standards but not the Jackson College standard, will not be eligible to compete or receive grant-in-aid funding. Students transferring from other institutions are also subjected to the NJCAA standards established for transfer students. All transfer student-athletes will be required to provide Jackson College with an official copy of all transcripts. Each transfer student will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine eligibility. Any deviation from this shall be decided upon by the Registrar, the Financial Aid Director and the Athletic Director on a case-by-case basis. The basic eligibility requirements for true freshmen or sophomores are listed here. For studentathletes that have either attempted multiple full-time semesters or have attended another college (both member and non-member of the NJCAA), there may be additional eligibility requirements as stated by the NJCAA. Please direct all eligibility questions to the College athletic director. All Jackson College student athletes receiving athletic scholarship money must complete at least 12 credits each semester, and receive at least a 2.0 GPA each semester.

Jackson College Student Athlete Academic Guidelines • Meet with a student success navigator in Student Services to get assistance in selecting your courses. Do this prior to the start of registration for the term you wish to attend. • Register early for best class selection. This will allow you to be able to choose from classes that will fit your busy schedule. You must enroll in at least 12 credit hours (dropping below 12 hours makes you immediately ineligible) during the terms that you will be competing. • Notify your instructors directly after the first class of the semester that you are a studentathlete, and let them know if you will be missing a class due to a scheduled game/ contest. • If you want to drop a course, contact your head coach, navigator, and the athletic coordinator or athletic director to discuss the situation first. Remember dropping below full-time makes you immediately ineligible. • Go to every scheduled class. If you miss class, you are at risk of being dropped out of the class by your instructor. Your instructors can drop you from your class without notifying you if you have missed too much of the class. If this happens, and you drop below full time, you will be immediately ineligible. • Athletic eligibility is filed by the athletic coordinator. Should you have any specific questions regarding your athletic eligibility, please consult your coach and athletic coordinator or athletic director. Jackson College files eligibility with the National Junior College Athletic Association. Rules governing academic eligibility can be found at www. njcaa.org. • The best way to maintain athletic eligibility while you are at Jackson College is to maintain a full-time academic schedule, and pass all classes with a 2.0 GPA or higher. Should you drop below a 2.0 GPA, or below full-time, you will need to speak to the athletic coordinator or athletic director about regaining your eligibility. • Ask for help as soon as you need it, not when it is too late. If you don’t think a class is the right fit, you are struggling and think you might be falling below a 2.0, or you are running into any problem with your academics, act immediately. Reach out to your coach, your

8


navigator or athletic coordinator or athletic director for guidance. These people are here to help you succeed, but they cannot help if they don’t know there is a problem.

Maintaining Eligibility & Registration All students must maintain a full-time credit hour load during competition. Dropping below 12 credit hours during the season results in immediate ineligibility and could result in forfeiture of contests. Student-athletes should use the guidelines below when registering for courses to ensure the best selection. • Fall Semester-Register in March • Winter Semester-Register in November • Spring/Summer Sessions-Register in March Student-athletes may not drop below full-time status at any point while their season is in progress. This means he/she cannot drop to 9 hours and then register for a second 7 week course which begins later. As soon as credit hour load falls below full-time, he/she is immediately ineligible. Refer to NJCAA manual mini-cases for examples.

Transfer Student-Athletes Check with the Athletic Department for eligibility. Prior to asking the Athletic Department to determine eligibility, be sure students have at least provided unofficial college/university transcripts. Note: A student-athlete must submit official versions prior to being awarded an athletic scholarship (grant- in-aid) and prior to playing in competition, regardless of financial obligations at previously attended institutions.

Administration All eligibility forms are prepared by the Athletic Department. The registrar and the athletic director are responsible for filing required eligibility forms and will sign them.
