Parish Athletics Policy
Parents/guardians agree that they are responsible for supervising their child/children or any other children that they bring to Parish Athletics events. Note: We have over 3 00 mothers and/or fathers listed as coaches and assistant coaches plus there are also parents who sometimes help out at practices and games that are not listed as coaches and assistant coaches. We do not perform background checks on coaches or assistant coaches or volunteers; we believe the best protection is that the parents are responsible for watching their kids during practices and games.

Anyone who suspects a child is being abused or neglected or is dependent is required to report this to the county department of social services. North Carolina's reporting law applies to every person and every institution in the state.
