Upper School Athletics

The Seabury Hall Upper School Athletic Program is committed to the physical needs of students in grades 9-12. While incorporating the school's mission statement of developing mind, body and soul, we strive to produce productive citizens and encourage improvement of each individual's physical and mental state of health. 

We believe that participation in structured activities that stress such values as fair play, commitment, dedication, leadership, respect, and teamwork is essential. Each student is given opportunities that will help him/her recognize a moral responsibility for his/her actions and attitudes.

Athletics Policies

List of 12 items.

  • Academic Eligibility

    Seabury Hall, as part of the Maui Interscholastic League, adheres to the Department of Education's 2.0 rule. Students must be passing all "core" courses (defined as courses needed to receive a diploma from the DOE) and maintaining a 2.0 each semester and the first and third quarter that they are involved in an athletic activity. Students who do not meet these standards are placed on a probationary status, where their grades are checked every two weeks. The student is allowed to practice, but not participate in any interscholastic activities during the two weeks that he/she is ineligible. If, after the two-week period, the student has improved and now meets the minimum standards, he/she is eligible until the next two-week grade check.

    Students at Seabury Hall are encouraged to meet with teachers during the extra help time (3:00-3:30 pm) in order to maintain a solid academic standing. Receiving "extra help" is an excused tardy to practice.
  • Physicals and Health Insurance

    Any student who chooses to participate in an interscholastic sport must have a current physical (good for one calendar year) on file with the Athletic Trainer and proof of health insurance.

    Seabury Hall does have accident insurance for all students. This insurance is used as a secondary insurance. If your child is injured and you wish to make a claim, you must meet with the Business Manager to complete the necessary forms.

    The Maui Interscholastic League provides catastrophic insurance for all athletes participating in interscholastic activities. This insurance can be used to cover expenses after expenses rise higher than $25,000.
  • Commitment

    Once a student is committed to a team, he/she is not allowed to drop from the team. If the student is asked to leave, or chooses to leave the team without the coach's permission, there will be a penalty, which lasts for one calendar year from the date the student ceases being a member of the team. The student will not be allowed to be a participant on any athletic team during that time, and must take physical education classes during the academic day.
  • Standards (Unexcused Absence)

    There are times when a student has obligations that take priority over a practice or game. These are viewed as excused absences. For these times, the student must communicate verbally to either the head coach or the Athletic Director. If the student misses an off season workout, practice or game without notification, it is considered unexcused. Before the student returns to the athletic program there will be a meeting with the student and the head coach. (The Athletic Director may substitute for the coach for whatever reason.) Consequences for an unexcused absence could be as follows:
    • suspension 
    • extra practice
    • coach's discretion
    • removal from the athletic program
    Students must be in school, attending class, by 10:00 am in order to be eligible to participate in that day's practices or contest.
  • Pre and Post Season Meetings

    A pre-season meeting will be held Saturday, August 18 in the Seabury Hall dining hall at 10:00 and 5:00. This meeting is required of all Upper School parents whose child will be participating in an interscholastic sport this academic year.  At this meeting parents view an "assumed risk" video, which is mandatory for their student's participation in the interscholastic program (if a parent is not able to view the video at the meeting, it must be accessed from the Seabury Hall athletic webpage, and a signature form must be downloaded and returned to the Athletic Office). Athletic policies will be discussed at this meeting.

    Coaches will meet with their athlete's parents prior to the season to discuss rules and regulations pertaining to that specific sport.

    At the conclusion of the season, each team has a meeting or potluck to bring closure to the season, collect uniforms, and present letters, pins or sweatshirts to the students (See "lettering" below for information on receiving these awards).  
  • Transportation and Team Travel

    When a team must travel by air, the school will make reservations for the entire team. The Athletic Director must approve any changes made by individuals. The student's family will absorb any expenses for any changes.

    The total number of people allowed to travel with a team to Molokai, Lanai, or on pre-season trips is limited by the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL). The number allowed per team, including coaches and players, is as follows: Basketball (14), Baseball (21), Cross Country (8), Golf (6 boys, 5 girls), Paddling (18), Soccer (20), Softball (21), and Tennis (7). There will be times when a team has more students than are allowed to travel. Those students will not be able to travel to Molokai, Lanai, or on a pre-season trip. Please contact the coach of your child's sport for clarification of the traveling roster. This is a rule of the MIL and Seabury Hall cannot adjust the number arbitrarily.

    When teams travel to Lahaina or Hana on a school day, students needing transportation will travel by bus or van. Students who wish to be transported by their parents will be able to do so with the Athletic Director's permission.  There may be occasions when some students will be allowed to meet the bus at a location closer to their home. Students are not allowed to leave the contest site with anyone other than their parent or legal guardian. A student can only be released if the parent makes eye-to-eye contact with the coach and discusses this change in travel.
  • Uniform Issue and Purchase

    Seabury Hall will provide a set of game uniforms for most sports. New uniforms are normally purchased every three years. Golf, Swimming, Tennis, and Paddling purchase their own uniforms. Other sports may purchase a second uniform. Any uniform or equipment issued by the athletic department is to be kept in good repair and returned at the conclusion of the season.
  • Team T-Shirts

    Teams wishing to issue shirts, warm-ups, or other items must adhere to the following guidelines:
    • The only writing on the front will be the Seabury Hall Athletics logo
    • On the back, there can be reference to a particular team
    • Adherence to the schoolʻs athletic style guide
  • Transition to a New Sport

    Students whose Fall or Winter season is completed are allowed two rest days and then they are expected to choose their next activity. Should the next activity be another interscholastic sport, there will be a "try out time" consisting of 5 consecutive practice days to determine whether they wish to continue with the sport they have chosen. Should they attend a 6th practice, they are considered on that team. Once they are a member of the team, they are defined as committed to that team.
  • Chain of Command

    Questions and concerns that arise during the athletic season can best be addressed by the individual coaches. We recommend that the student meet with the coach prior to the parent's involvement. Students and coaches learn a great deal when they talk about the student's concerns. The Athletic Director serves as a third party should the student choose that support. Coaches should only be approached at a scheduled meeting. Experience has shown that meetings immediately after a practice or contest are less productive then those that take place at a scheduled time. Only after the coaches have been consulted should a concern be taken to the Athletic Director. Ultimate authority and major policy changes rest with the Head of School. 
  • Due Process

    A student or parent/legal guardian contesting the disciplinary action taken based on team or department rules shall have the right to appeal. In cases of disciplinary action taken by a coach, the Athletic Director will hear the appeal. In cases of disciplinary actions taken by the Athletic Director, the Head of School will hear the appeal. Requests for an appeal may be made orally or in written form to the respective person (see above). The appeal official shall consider the evidence presented, including statements by legal counsel, and make written findings of the decision within five days of the hearing, with a copy to the student, parent/legal guardian.
  • Vacation Travel

    Developing a team is a difficult and challenging task. It requires a high level of commitment for student athletes and coaches alike. To that end, the task of building team spirit is derailed when students leave on extended trips and vacations. Therefore, the following vacation policy will be enforced for the 2019-20 school year:

    Students who are participating in Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball or Paddling who leave the team and miss five consecutive practices:
        • will not play in any games prior to the holiday/vacation
        • must participate in five practices upon their return before participating in any games.

    Coaches will work with those students who will be at every practice and game to develop team concepts. When the non-participating students return from their extended break, they can work their way into the system and earn the privilege to play in games.
