The purpose of this handbook is to inform you of what is expected of you as a member of our program. We desire to have a championship team. Our policies have been created to help us achieve our goal.
This handbook is not meant to replace the line of communication between you and your coaches but rather to give you guidelines and too encourage you to communicate with your coaches.
It is a privilege to be a member of our basketball program. Take pride in everything you do as part of our basketball program. The success you will enjoy will result from the effort you are willing to give. Nothing good comes easy.
Fact: You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
Each day you will be faced with decisions that will affect your experience and success at Forest Lake High School. Do your best to make the correct decision, one you can stand by and feel good about. Sounds simple, but it will not always be easy.

FLHS TEAM SELECTIONS
The Forest Lake High School athletic programs are highly competitive.Due to our large school and limited opportunities, we are not able to place every child on a team who wishes to participate. While this is not our desire, it is a reality. As an athlete, understand there is a very real possibility you may not be selected for a team.
In order to make a varsity team a player must be outstanding and also play a position the team needs. Underclass student-athletes possessing these qualities have the same opportunity to make a team as a senior does. If selected, you should be prepared to accept placement at any level, be it Freshmen, B-squad, Junior Varsity or Varsity.
A main goal of a competitive athletic program is to put the most talented and skilled members of the team in competition, to win the contest. Starting positions and playing time are not guaranteed to anyone. Each team member is very valuable to the team’s overall progress.
By being a member of a team, regardless of time spent in actual competition, a person can learn many valuable lessons:
Focus on what you want to happen, not what you don't want to happen.
