Kenyon College
2008-09Student-Athlete Handbook 
August 2008
Dear Kenyon Student-Athlete,Welcome to Kenyon Athletics. In the 2007-08 academic year, we had more varsity teams ranked nationally thanevery before, and eight of our programs made NCAA post-season championship competition. This high level of
competition complements the national reputation of Kenyon’s academic programs –
a combination for which we arequite proud.The Student-Athlete Handbook is a guide to your participation in athletics at Kenyon College. You will findinformation on eligibility, academic requirements, NCAA rules, drug testing, scheduling of games and practices, andmuch more. One of the most important sections is the Kenyon College Student-Athlete Code of Ethics whereexpectations for sportsmanship and making good choices on and off the field of play are outlined. Kenyon Collegeviews the student-athlete experience as a learning environment, a laboratory for challenge, coordination, fitness andteamwork. We emphasize the student-
athlete’s role as an ambassador for the team and for the college while
contributing to the life of the campus in areas outside athletics. The Kenyon student-athlete has a somewhat greaterresponsibility to the campus community by always being viewed as a representative of a team and the college. This istrue in social settings along with the choices you make every hour of every day.As Athletic Director, I ask that you take full advantage of the challenges and growth opportunities afforded to youin every area at Kenyon. Just as with your attendance at practices and games, simply showing up to class is notenough
you need to perform 
. Take the greatest advantage of Kenyon by ‘performing’, ‘engaging, ‘discussing’, and‘taking risks in new subject areas’ both in the classroom and in research. Communicate with your teaching faculty
about your aspirations, about potential absences for athletic contests, and about class policy. Active communicationis a cornerstone of success, and a roadmap for your success at Kenyon.I also encourage you to take time to learn about the history of your sport at Kenyon - who were the great playersand great coaches, the ones that saw teams through the best times and the lean times? Connect with those alumnievery chance you get; they will tell you that they would trade a lot of experiences for the chance to put on a Kenyonuniform and play again. Then, at your Kenyon graduation, I hope you will take a quick peek back at your four yearsat Kenyon and know that you made the best of your experiences and developed friendships, with teammates,roommates, classmates, and professors that will last a lifetime.Best wishes as you move forward with your Kenyon career. Be a great ambassador for yourself and for theKenyon Lords and Ladies, on and off the competition arena.Go Lords. Go Ladies.Peter SmithDirector of Athletics, Fitness and Recreation
