The Ringgold School District provides transportation to all scheduled away events/competitions. It is important for student athletes to ride the bus to and from all contests for many reasons, including team unity, shared responsibility for team equipment, coaches’ discussion and instruction before and after contests, etc. Therefore all student athletes are required to ride the bus to AND from all contests.
In rare circumstances, an occasion or emergency may arise and it is necessary for a parent to drive their child to or from an athletic contest. In such cases, they must complete and comply with the “Athletic Travel Release” form prior to the scheduled event. Only parents/guardians will be permitted to transport a student athlete, they are not permitted to ride home with another family. Before they are released, the parent or guardian must present themselves to the coach.
Athletic travel release forms are due in the Athletic Office at least 24 hours prior to the game. Once approved, the coach will be notified. No more than three (3) travel releases will be granted per season of competition.
