If the player is an altar server they must serve their scheduled Mass. Any Parish scheduled function that is mandatory, confirmation, forty hours, etc. School dances are not an excused absence; the players can attend the dance after practice. If given appropriate notice we will try to work around the function by adjusting our schedule. This doesn’t always work but we will try to accommodate.
Sickness that includes a fever or possible a contagious carrier should not be ay practice. Injured players are not excused, they are to be at practice learning what the team is doing new.
