Each player is responsible for their equipment and coming to practice. If a player can not make it to practice they must take the Responsibility to call their coach and tell them why; to much homework; religious class; illness; family affair to attend. If a player does not notify their coach about not attending practice they are telling their coach they don't care if they play or not. We as coaches take pride in what we do. We also teach Responsibility and COMMITMENT! Feel free to see your child's coach, BEFORE OR AFTER PRACTICE, NOT DURING!
GAME DAY STAY AWAY FROM THE TEAM BENCH! THE COACHES ARE IN CHARGE. IF YOUR CHILD IS HURT COACHES WILL ATTEND TO THEM, IF IT IS SERIOUS YOU WILL BE CALLED OUT OF THE STANDS.
