Storm Drug Policy
JR High and Varsity would be required to attend class and become certified in Drug and Alcohol Recognition training:
1. This would allow all coaches to request a drug test within the law.
2. This would allow for targeted testing along with random testing (see #5)
3. If a test was requested player’s parents would have 24 hours to get the player tested at Selectforce. Failure to do so is a failed test.
4. If player refuses to take the test, that is considered a failed test.
5. Random tests for Jr High and High School kids can and may be requested anytime during the season of any OKC Storm sports offered. These test will be paid for by the OKC Storm Program.
6. If a player was to come forward and confess to drug use there would be a 30 day suspension.
7. If a player is caught (including failed test) there would be a 90 day suspension.
8. In a case of a suspension the Athletic Director, coach, player and parents would meet immediately to determine the best course of action. During the suspension the player may be required to be away from the team or may be required to continuing practicing with the team, attend games and sit on the bench in street clothes. While we will have No Tolerance in the suspension length the actual out working of the terms of the suspension will vary based on the situation. The goal will always be restoration while working with the parents and protecting team mates.
9. Before the player would be eligible to return to the team in full capacity the player would:
A. Have to pass a drug test.
B. Meet with the Advisory Board (with parents)
10. After the suspension parents, coach and board would have to agree player the player should rejoin the team. Completing suspension is not automatic qualification.
11. 2nd offense is lifetime suspension.
