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;
  • Personal or family emergency.

NOT acceptable reasons:

  • Being sore (but uninjured;)
  • Feeling tired or, "not feeling like it."

Injured players:

  • You are expected to attend practice with their teammates, even if unable to physically practice;
  • If the player is sick, then they should be home focusing on getting better.

Being a good teammate:

  • For dual games, varsity and JV players are expected to watch each others’ games and encourage each other. (This is not required for travel tournament play.)
