The challenges of a ‘no-cut policy’ in athletics

Coaches at Kennedy High School (Iowa) discuss the district’s no-cut policy and the challenges it creates within their programs.

  1. Big school (1,750 kids), big tax base (nicer area of the city), big budget. Our local high school in the Northeast basically has a no-cut policy, but it’s because we don’t have an overwhelming amount of students who try out. That carries its own set of challenges.
    I wonder if Kennedy loses its highest caliber athletes to private schools or club teams (who forego high school sports) because of the no-cut policy. Our smaller district loses some high caliber athletes (and other students) because of the limited resources / competition. We are also very close to many excellent alternatives.
