GIRLS WATER POLO PRACTICE SCHEDULE

FIRST PRACTICE

Monday 22 March 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

 

PRACTICE SCHEDULE FOR THE SEASON

Monday - Friday 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

 

Athletes are allowed to stay at school after dismissal but only three athletes are allowed in the locker room at a time.

Be on deck with your swimsuit already on...right before 4:00 p.m. All bags and belongings need to stay on deck. Locker rooms are only for quick changing and bathroom breaks. After practice, the locker rooms are closed to us. Throw your towel and clothes on and leave the pool deck promptly, because the boys’ team has the pool immediately after our practice. Everyone must wear their face mask when they’re not in the water.

 

COVID TESTING

Moving forward into the season, players will be tested three times per week. We know there won’t be testing yet during our first week of practice; those practices will include non-contact conditioning, water treading, ball passing, etc. On the three days/week we do have testing will be the only days we are allowed “contact” practices or games. Please don’t miss these rare times for train on guarding, and shooting under pressure.

UNEXCUSED LATENESS & ABSENCES

 

Coaches require 24 hours' notice of potential absences; exceptions are unexpected illnesses or emergencies.

 

If you have a pre-planned absence for a vacation, surgery, testing, etc. and your athlete will be missing practices, games or tournaments, parents MUST contact the coach or assistant coach as soon as they are aware that the planned event is going to impact their player’s ability to attend practices/games/tournaments.

 

Consequences for unexcused lateness:

  • First instance in a week: additional conditioning TBD by coaching staff;
  • Second: additional conditioning and removal from roster for next scheduled game;
  • Third: additional conditioning, removal from roster for next game, and consideration for removal from team.

Consequences for unexcused absence from practice/games:

  • First instance in a week: removal from roster for next scheduled game;
  • Second: removal from roster for next two scheduled games;
  • Third: removal from team.

Appropriate reasons for absence from practice:

  • Conflicting academic requirements;
  • Contagious illness with a doctor's note;
  • Personal or family emergency.

NOT acceptable reasons:

  • Feeling tired or, "not feeling like it."

Injured players:

  • Are expected to attend practice with their teammates, even if unable to physically practice;
  • If the player is contagiously sick, then they should be home focusing on getting better. A doctor's note must e subitted to the coach upon return that clearly states the dates the player is excused due to illness. Without a note, this will be considered an unexcused absence.
