ATTITUDE REFLECTS LEADERSHIP
Philosophy of coaching: We are running a tight ship!
- Respect the sport
- Respect the coaching
- Respect your teammates
- Respect your talent
Discipline+Hard Work+Respect= Success
- Practice is mandatory- you can’t get better if you are not at practice.
- Each coach will be keeping attendance at practice.
- Practice is indicative of playing time
- You will have 2 excused practices- sick/family emergency
- You will have 2 excused school related absences
After you miss 4 practices you must pay for a private lesson, with one of the coaches, to make up your practice before your next tournament. Private lessons are $30 an hour.
Most of the improvement in an athlete comes from practice sessions, not tournament play. Practices will be structured, highly intense, and different every time. We are going to incorporate team bonding in our drills as well as technical training. Teamwork is of upmost importance in a successful program. We want to build a highly competitive HCJ program. We want other teams to hope we AREN’T in their bracket!!!
Practices will begin sharply at 6:30 and will end at 8:30– –
Which means that stretching and warming up along with putting up the nets should take place from 6:10-6:30. Do not plan on walking in the gym at 6:29 and think you are on time.
Everyone should be at the gym no later than 6:15. It also means that taking down the nets are the responsibility of everyone. NO ONE will leave the gym until all nets are taken down.
Practice time is not the time to visit and catch up with your friends…it’s not what you parents are paying for. Social interaction happens during down time at tournaments or on your own time—not during practice.
37 plus practices and 8-10 tournaments.
Practices will be on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30
Procedure for submitting a complaint or concern:
- You will submit your complaint or concern via firstname.lastname@example.org
- I will answer your email in a timely manner
- If you are not satisfied with my answer we will meet an hour before practice time.
- PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH A COACH AT A TOURNAMENT
- PLEASE DO NOT USE PRACTICE TIME AS TIME TO VENT
HCJ coaches will be busy getting practices together, problem solving as a group, and discussing any issues within their teams before practice. Then we will be coaching your daughter at a high intensity. We will not and do not want to use practice time as conference time.
There will be times where we are not perfect. There will be times when we make mistakes. There will be times when your daughter is not happy with her current position/playing time. We understand that as coaches please understand that as parents.
NOBODY IS PERFECT
If a player or parent is caught bashing or bad mouthing a coach or another player on any social media site they will be expelled from the team effective immediately.
Team placement is schedule to change at any time. Be aware that there may be changes made before our first tournament.
