Rules and Regulations

NEW ST. NICHOLAS ACADEMY ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION POLICY: Effective immediately, coaches are responsible for the timely return of uniforms to the sports coordinator with a complete list of the players and uniforms returned. The coordinator is responsible for providing a time and location in advance to coaches, giving the coach ample time to collect uniforms. Any player not returning a uniform cannot participate in the succeeding SNA sport until the uniform is returned. That player will be registered with SNA, will be placed on the roster, and can participate in tryouts. However, once the SNAAA President is notified that the player's uniform has not been returned, the player cannot participate in any practice or game until the President is notified that the uniform has been returned.

  • Understand that any parent or player ejected from a game is automatically suspended for the next game of that season.
