  • Dear Parents/Guardians/Students and  Athletic Interests:


    To ensure Braden River High School (BRHS) is compliant with all the Florida High School Athletic Associations (FHSM) policies, it is imperative that all BRHS athletic supporters abide by the policies of the FHSM.

    Policy 36- Athletic Recruiting. Athletic recruiting is a gross violation of the spirit and philosophy of educational athletics. Athletic recruiting is unethical and unsporting conduct and is forbidden by FHSAA.

    Athletic Recruiting. ''Athletic recruiting" is any effort by a school employee, athletic department staff member or representative of a school's athletic interests to pressure, urge or entice a student to attend that school for the purpose of participating in interscholastic  athletics.

    "Representative of a school's athletic interests" refers to any independent person, business or organization that participates in, assists with and/or promotes that school's interscholastic athletic program. This includes student-athletes or other students in school, parents, guardians or other family members, immediate relatives of a coach or other member of the athletic department, a volunteer with that school's athletic program, athletic boosters, a person, business or organization that makes financial or in-kind contributions to the athletic department.

    Policy 37-Impermissible benefit. No school employee, athletic department staff member, representative of the school's athletic interests or third parties, such as an independent person, business or organization, may be involved, directly or indirectly, in giving an impermissible benefit to any student or any member of his/her family for the purpose of participating in interscholastic athletics, or to any student-athlete who already attends a school.

    Thank you for abiding by these FHSAA policies and Go Pirates!
