Booster Club Stephen Gibbons Speaking tonight. Booster Club is the heartbeat of Regina Dominican Athletics. Regina Dominican does not charge sport fees. Participation is not required. Two ways we raise money for Athletics: 1) Golf Outing 2) BC Membership Fees
Communications We understand that issues will arise from time to time between player and coaches. We encourage players to communicate concerns directly to the head coach. If an issue remains unresolved, then we encourage the parent/guardian to discuss the issue with the coach. If the issue remains unresolved, I am happy to sit down with the student-athlete, parent and coach to discuss the issue. We ask that parents/guardians wait 24 hours after a contest or practice before contacting the coach directly.
