Lincoln student/athletes participating on any athletic team are governed by all F.H.S.A.A rules and Leon County policies and guidelines which are published in their respective manuals. In addition, Lincoln utilizes an additional system of communication between coaches that encourages all students to remain on their respective teams for the duration of their seasons. However, should a student decide to quit one sport before that sport concludes, he or she would not be allowed to participate in another sport until the conclusion of the sport that he/she quit unless released by the coach of the first sport. The only exception would be an injury that prevented a student from participating in a contact sport(i.e. football) but receives medical clearance to play in a non-contact sport (i.e. baseball).
Coaches have discretion in the selection of team members participating in Lincoln athletics or on teams/clubs consisting of Lincoln students participating outside of the Leon County Athletic program.
