Class Policy: Quizzes – Students will be assessed on knowledge learned, skill fundamentals, soccer history, and rules. The course will feature two take home quizzes. Late work: There will be a 10% deduction of points for every day the quiz is turned in late. Attendance/Participation/Effort: Every student is expected to come to class ready to participate. This includes proper attire. Wear clothing that allows you to move (i.e. sweats, shorts, t-shirt, athletic shoes). No jewelry will be permitted. All students are also expected to actively participate in the drills or activities taking place. Upon an injury a student will still need to come to maintain class participation, unless a doctor instructs otherwise. IMPORTANT: If a student is injured or sick and unable to attend class, he or she must immediately contact me (via email) to receive instruction on earning participation while sick/injured. Each student will be permitted two unexcused absences. For every unexcused absence thereafter, the student shall receive a zero for participation that day, which will result in a reduction in the student’s final grade. Absences may be considered excused only if the student brings in a letter from the Student Health Office, a physician, or if a student is traveling to compete in a varsity athletic event. If any student will be missing class due to a religious holiday, he/she must notify me in advance, during the first week of the semester.
Missing class for a religious occasion will be excused only if students abide by this University policy. If a student registers for the course after the first week of the semester, he or she must notify me of any religious holidays within one week of registering for the course. Arriving more than 15 minutes late for class will result in a zero for participation. Daily participation is graded with a two point grading scale:

Shelter in Place – General Guidance
Although it is unlikely that we will ever need to shelter in place, it is helpful to know what to do just in case. No matter where you are, the basic steps of shelter in place will generally remain the same. • If you are inside, stay where you are unless the building you are in is affected. If it is affected, you should evacuate. If you are outdoors, proceed into the closest building or follow instructions from emergency personnel on the scene. • Locate an interior room to shelter inside. If possible, it should be above ground level and have the fewest number of windows. If sheltering in a room with windows, move away from the windows. If there is a large group of people inside a particular building, several rooms maybe necessary. • Shut and lock all windows (for a tighter seal) and close exterior doors. • Turn off air conditioners, heaters, and fans. Close vents to ventilation systems as you are able. (University staff will turn off ventilation systems as quickly as possible). • Make a list of the people with you and ask someone to call the list in to UPD so they know where you are sheltering and who is with you. If only students are present, one of the students should call in the list. • Await further instructions. If possible, visit GW Campus Advisories for incident updates (http://CampusAdvisories.gwu.edu) or call the GW Information Line 202-994-5050. • Make yourself comfortable and look after one other. You will get word as soon as it is safe to come out.
An evacuation will be considered if the building we are in is affected or we must move to a location of greater safety. We will always evacuate if the fire alarm sounds. In the event of an evacuation, please gather your personal st belongings quickly (purse, keys, GWorld card, etc.) and proceed to the nearest exit. The nearest exits are on the 1 floor on either side of the Gym. Once you have evacuated the building, proceed to our primary rendezvous location, rd which is the southwest corner of 23 and H Streets, NW.
Alert DC provides free notification by e-mail or text message during an emergency. Visit GW Campus Advisories for a link and instructions on how to sign up for alerts pertaining to GW. If you receive an Alert DC notification during class, you are encouraged to share the information immediately.
GW Alert provides popup notification to desktop and laptop computers during an emergency. In the event that we receive an alert to the computer in our classroom, we will follow the instructions given. You are also encouraged to download this application to your personal computer. Visit GW Campus Advisories to learn how.
