Honestly i dont know why everybody makes such a big deal about partying in high school im 45 years old now but when i was in high school me and my buddies would go out and get boozed up every weekend and party and i was still an all state football player. We used to alway make fun of the kids that sat at home and played there nintendos to during the weekends the point of high school is to go out and enjoy your teenage years and be social. The picture thing i can see as a problem but if a kid wants to go out and booze alittle bit id say go for it!!!!!

Times have changed. Most people have wised up that it's dangerous for young people to be getting liqoured up - accidents, beginning of additions, alcohol poisoning, etc. Your type of thinking went out with the last ice age.

bigboyd...you obviously don't care about the kids today!! I've lost many friends from all over the place in the past 7 years due to drinking! Your comment about not caring that students drink underage is VERY disturbing!!!

This is one of the most disturbing posts on this site...I have lost a few good friends to underaged drinking. I also highly doubt that you are 45, or were an all state football player. Because if you were making fun of your high school classmates for playing nintendo you had to have a time machine, cause you would have been in your early 20's when nintendos came out.

Not saying it's right, but when high schoolers see a picture of themselves, your have about a 90% chance it will end up on facebook. Kids cant get enough of pictures of themselves. if someone else posts the picture and they see it, they will likely tag themselves so everyone knows that its a picture of them.

Kids, don't drink is high school if you want to stay eligible for athletics. Athletics are a privilege and you don't have to play. But if you do, you need to follow the rules set forth. NO DRINKING!!!! If someone sends a picture of you drinking to the school, you broke that rule. Not the schools fault. You (the kid) did it. Parents need to blame the kid. Not the school. Anyways, just remember.... Privilege, not a right...

What about the kids who drink during the summer? Should they miss part of football, basketball, hockey, etc. season because they had a beer in their hand in the middle of summer and a person sends the picture in? They didn't get caught, and if they would have got caught, they would have had 6 weeks anyway, so they probably wouldn't be penalized. If this situation does happen, and the kid is punished, the parents should be blaming the school, not the kid.

A lot of schools have rules now where if you get caught drinking in the summer your 6 wks start at the beginning of practices or of school. It's still not legal for them to drink in the summer so why shouldn't they have some priviledges taken away (sports)? There has to be some consequences.

Mandan's district doesn't have that and I agree with it being that way. It isn't legal for them to drink in the summer, but if they are caught, they get a minor and a $xx.xx fine. That is a pretty big consequence. I think the schools are overstepping their boundaries when they are controlling what people are doing over the summer, when they are not affiliated with the school. I understand that a student drinking during the school year is a problem for the school. I don't see why the schools feel that they need to monitor what the students are doing in their 3 month vacation. That is the job of the parents, and if needed, the police.

Many schools are trying to emphasize that the student's integrity and safety is more important than their opportunity to play sports. When the students break the law by drinking, the students are saying that the risk of getting caught and suspended from playing is worth it. As far as the summer goes, a kid is still underaged and a student of the school he/she is enrolled in until he/she graduates. Many kids go to summer school while others use the time to take a break, but they still represent and are students of the school they are enrolled in.

The way I look at it, if it is the summer, the police should take care of it, not the school that the student isn't even attending at the time.

If a student gets caught drinking they are suspended for 6 weeks but if a student broke into a convenience store and stole a lot of property, they wouldn't be suspended.

Which is worse?

It happened at Mandan when I was in high school and one of the kids had to go to YCC, but the other continued playing.

Seems to me these harsh rules are turning hids away from high school sports. It's no wonder summer leagues are becoming so popular, with higher compitition and less oversight, you get the best athletes. High school sports are soon becoming a thing of the past, I know high school hockey is slowly turning into Midget hockey. With more games,and higher caliber hockey, more and more talented players are leaving their schools. But I guess mabye this is what the schools want, that way they don't have to pay for traveling, meals, equipment. Thanks NDHSAA!!!

2Pac and Biggie are still alive. 9/11 was planned by the government. JFK was shot from the front not the back. Keith Hernandaz has one magic lugie. Any other conspiracy theories im forgetting? If summer leagues are always more competative then why to people always state the whole team wasnt there. competition in summer leagues is no where near high school season.

Harsh rules. Expecting athletes to not break the law is harsh. Hmmm...

Gee, why would we expect those that will be looked up to by younger kids to obey the law?

The rules were tough when any of us were in high school. The difference today is facebook, myspace, cellphone pictures, texts, etc. It's just easier to get caught. The rule in any situation is don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

The coaches who are running successful competitve summer traveling programs are not even going to look at a player who is ineligible to play on their high school teams. It takes a lot of discipline and dedication and money to really excel in these programs. They are not going to spend their time with players that are going to try and explain why it was too difficult to avoid drinking. They don't have all the specific rules because they have the ablility to not even give you a chance if they don't want to.
