MSAL Uniform Policy & GUIDELINES

Manhattan Youth believes in competitive equity. Our organization serves a broad community with varied economic backgrounds. It is our goal to provide adequate resources to ensure all of our athletes are able to compete on a level playing field. With this mission in mind, we have standardized the uniform process so the focus is always community and leadership on the field.

Return Policy

MSAL asks that all uniforms be returned to the Director of that After School Program. At the discretion of the Director, Student-Athletes can keep the multi-purpose shirts, but we ask that all sport-specific uniforms be returned at the end of the season.

Rules & Policies

Visiting Teams must be monitored at all times by their supervising Adult.

Visiting Teams must have a ratio of 15 to 1 to be allowed at an activity.

Supervisors of teams cannot leave without their team at the end of a scheduled game or match.

Supervisors must escort their team off of school property (preferably out of the neighborhood).

Clear procedures listed for behaviors and acts at all MSAL events.

Student activities and sports are an integral part of the Middle School educational program.

The emphasis of a Middle School activities program is on teaching, participation, and progression with less on the competitive pressures.

Participants, coaches, parents, officials, and fans shall model and uphold the highest ideals of sportsmanship.

The supervision of activities should be in the hands of trained school personnel. The selection of this leadership should be based on their knowledge of teaching activities to this age group, understanding of the modified sports/activities program, training, and safety procedures.

Athletes and activity participants will always conduct themselves in an appropriate manner that will not harm or taint the reputation of the school, group, or teammates. This includes posts and comments on social media sites.
