Co-operative Sports Agreement:

 

I am writing to you to provide current information regarding a possible NSAA cooperative agreement between Allen Consolidated Schools and Wakefield Public School.  For the last three years Allen board members and administration have held meetings with area schools looking for the best possible partnership for a cooperative agreement that addresses the issues of declining student enrollment and student participation in specific extra-curricular activities.  The board committee that has been conducting these meetings is going to recommend to the entire Board of Education that a formal NSAA agreement with Wakefield Public School be voted on at the May Board of Education meeting.  The resolution will include the following extra-curricular activities for the 2018-2019 school year: Junior High Football, Junior High Wrestling, Junior High Volleyball, Junior High Boys and Girls Basketball, Varsity Volleyball, Varsity Girls Basketball, Varsity Wrestling, Varsity Boys and Girls Golf.  If passed this resolution will be active for two consecutive years.      

 

Highlights of the agreement include:

 

  • Team Name: The name for the sport’s teams included in the cooperative agreement will be “Wakefield – Allen Trojans”. This title will be used on programs as well as the official name listed on the NSAA resolution.
  • Team Colors: Maroon, white, and gold will be the official team colors.   
  • Team Uniforms: New uniforms will be purchased for varsity girls’ sports.  Costs will be shared equally between the two school districts. Other sports included in the cooperative agreement, will have purchased on an “as needed”/rotation basis. Costs will be shared equally.
  • Wakefield will serve as the Host School as identified on the NSAA resolution.
  • Each school will provide at least one or two coaches in each sport.  (This will accommodate increased student numbers.)
  • Head Coaches will be determined by administration from both districts.
  • Coaching costs will be paid based upon each school’s extra-curricular salary schedule for their coach. 
  • Games of shared sports will follow the Wakefield schedule. 
  • Home games will be played in Wakefield.  We are planning to hold games when appropriate in Allen.  Singleton basketball games or possibly a triangular volleyball match may be played in Allen.
  • Practice will be held in Wakefield; however, Allen facilities will be available and used when appropriate.
  • Potential and anticipated costs will be shared equally by both districts.
  • Wakefield’s Student Code of Conduct, Eligibility, and Drug Testing policies will be used for the agreed-upon sports.
  • Allen and Wakefield believe this cooperative agreement is in the best interest of the district as a whole and both communities.
  • We are looking at working together in other areas in addition to athletics.  Curricular programs as well as fine arts activities will be evaluated annually. 
  • Overall the desire of each Boards of Education is to continue to build positive relationships which benefit both districts and ensure viability for future years. 
  • Regular meetings will be held between the board committees as well as administrative teams to evaluate the proposed cooperative agreement as well as developing a process for possible expansion to include other areas.
