Daily Attendance is Important for our Students to be Successful!


Parents - Please check our 2020-2021 District Calendar when making appointments to avoid student absences from school. We understand that some appointments during school can’t be avoided but it’s important to keep the absences to a minimum. The best time to make appointments is after 2:30 pm, on early release afternoons, or days we don’t have school scheduled.


Also, it’s important for our student-athletes to follow the 2020-2021 Brookwood Athletic Handbook absence guidelines to avoid code violations that result in athletic ineligibility. 


Junior High and High School Volleyball Players and Parents – Please like and follow the “Brookwood Falcons Volleyball” Facebook page/group to keep up to date on all volleyball news. The coaches are excited and looking forward to having a great season!

Athletes who are participating in these sports need to check with Mr. Clinton to make sure all of their paperwork is complete and that they’re eligible to participate.



Brookwood is expected to honor spectator rules at road events, and we will.  PARENTS / FANS SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO GO TO THESE CONTESTS IF THEY DO NOT HAVE TICKETS!

Reminder About Spectator rules

All winter athletes have received a “Spectator Rules Acknowledgement Form” that must be signed by parents or guardians and returned to the athletics office.  Without this form, an athlete cannot designate spectators.  Parents: please sign and have your son / daughter return this form immediately!!!!


For the current Volleyball season, we will be utilizing a ticket system.  Each player will receive FOUR tickets that they will then distribute to the spectators of their choice. The tickets will be distributed for contests 1 – 2 days in advance.

Spectators using the tickets must:

  • PRINT FULL NAME on the back of the ticket
  • Present the ticket for admission at the door when you attend

Most schools will have the same rules, and we will let athletes know of changes in advance.
