ALL TEAMS: ATHLETE EVALUATIONS

Coaches passed out Athlete Evaluations at their final practice this last week (12.12-12.14). These come with homework for your athlete to return after break. If you were not present for this practice and/or left it at the gym, you may pick it up from the front office. The gym and office will be fully open on Monday and Tuesday; after that, you can pick it up during camp/clinic times over the break.

This is something that we take the time to do to give extra communication to athletes and parents on their progress so far this season. We do this to help your athlete to improve, to share what coaches see they are excelling in, to give your athlete constructive improvement plan and for your athlete to know what to work on to move forward. All intent is to help your athlete to improve- we want to always be moving forward! Athletes improving means our teams are improving and means our program is improving!

ALL TEAMS: STANDARD UPDATES

Missing practice for illness the week of competition: If your athlete is unable to come to practice due to illness the week of competition; the expectation should be that your athlete will be replaced for that event. This is to ensure team success and to protect the ill athlete. If they are unable to come and partially participate, then we can’t expect them to do a full routine days later. We will ask that any athlete coming to the gym the week of an event that is sick wear a mask to help protect athletes and coaches.

Moving up classifications from season to season: We have been using our Gold Stars to help motivate athletes, to open communication between athletes and to help give families discounts for next season. We are going to start to use these as a measurement of being eligible to move up to the next classification at tryouts next year. Getting a gold star each week is the basic standard for our program and not achieving those does not warrant a move up to the next classification where the standards become more and more important. Reminder on how to get a gold star; be on time, wear the correct practice wear, have strong work ethic, make coach corrections, and have a positive attitude.
