Player Expectations

  • We expect you to compete hard and challenge for your positions

  • We expect 100% effort in practice when ask that you go100%

  • We expect you to learn your assignments

  • We expect you to set goals, both team and personal, and work hard at achieving them

  • We expect you to be “coach-able”

  • We expect you to demonstrate self control

  • We expect you to respond to coaches and parents with respect: either “yes sir” and “yes ma’am” OR “yes”

  • We expect you to know when joking ends and hard work begins

  • We expect you to respect your equipment and all team rules

  • We expect you to do what is right – always – have and display integrity

  • We expect you to demonstrate a respect for others, including all members of our team, the opposing teams that we will play, and all officials – even when they miss calls or make mistakes

  • We expect you to treat your parents, teachers, and coaches with respect at all times

  • We expect you to represent the team with class at all times

  • We expect hitting and whistle to whistle hustle on every play

  • We expect you to be a “practice player” – go hard in practice, even if you have done the same drill 1,000 times before

  • We expect you to “act like you have been there before” after a touchdown, or a defensive sack, or an excellent tackle or block – we expect all of these things to be a common occurrence throughout the season

  • We expect that you are respectful to your parents – Suggestion: DO NOT BE DISRESPECTFUL TO YOUR PARENTS IN FRONT OF A COACH – PAIN WILL ENTER YOUR LIFE IF THIS HAPPENS

  • We expect you to be the very best student, on the field and in the classroom, that you can be

  • We expect you to control your language and attitudes at all times

  • We expect you to be respectful to women, especially your Mom

  • We expect you to learn the value of “team” before “self”

  • We expect you to develop a “never say die” approach to football and life

Expectations can best be described as follows:

DO THE RIGHT THING – YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD & SHOULDN’T DO -

DEMAND THE BEST FROM YOURSELVES!


Team rules

Team Rules

  • Absences

    • Attending practice is the number one way to improve as a player - the importance of practice can not be understated. Our hope is that we have 100% attendance at every practice, however we understand that situations may arise that prevents this. Therefore, we have the following rules:

      • Excused Absences: A missed practice will be excused if the parent calls the head coach before practice, or, in an emergency situation, if the parent calls as soon as possible (before the next practice). A player may be required to miss ½ of a game if he exceeds a maximum of 2 excused absences for the season. This will be evaluated on a case by case basis and will be subject to the coach’s discretion. We don’t expect this to be a big problem.

    • Unexcused absences

      • If an absence is unexcused, the player will be ineligible to play ½ game for the first offense, and will be ineligible for 1 full game on the second offense. Examples of an unexcused absence include (but are not limited to):

      • A player voluntarily chooses to miss practice with no compelling reason

      • A player is grounded or otherwise held in detention for infractions made at home or at school

    • Our expectation is that we will not have to address this issue for anyone, over the entire season

  • Behavior

    • We expect our team to play with emotion and be aggressive, while demonstrating good sportsmanship during all games and practices. We also expect that our players will be well behaved at home and at school. In the unlikely event that this does not occur, zero tolerance will be given for behavior such as arguing with officials, making improper gestures to other teams (“trash talking”, taunting, name calling, etc.), teammates, or coaches, using improper language, or fighting.

      • Consequences: The player will be removed from the game immediately

    • We expect our team to strive for excellence – pushing themselves and their teammates to do their very best during practice, games, at home, and at school. We expect teammates to positively support each other – both when they make good plays AND when they make mistakes. Negative feedback on another player’s performance is not acceptable (i.e. “you suck” because you missed a block or fumbled, or jumped offsides or you’re a baby because you’re always crying, etc.). There is a right way and a wrong way to provide feedback to teammates – our team will learn and know the difference. In the unlikely event that a player displays improper behavior (i.e. negative feedback, using bad language, displaying a bad attitude, using improper gestures, or rough housing during practice, displaying a bad attitude, bullying people, or talking back to Mom or Dad or a coach),

      • consequences can vary from a “time out”, to extra running after practice, to the loss of ½ game of playing time, depending on the behavior. In all cases, the consequence will be commensurate with the infraction and will be at the discretion of the coach.

The rules can best be described as follows:

DO THE RIGHT THING – YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD & SHOULDN’T DO -

DEMAND THE BEST FROM YOURSELVES!
