Parent meetings help establish expectations for players and parents, introduce the staff, and convey visions and values important to the program. Our pre-season meeting will be held in February right before the thick of season workouts and training. I feel championships are won in the offseason. Also, we like to fundraise during this time, and we can get fundraising information to parents during this time. The following are discussed during parent meetings:
Vision, values, goals of the program
1. Academics- There will be year round grade monitoring to make sure each individual is getting their academic needs met. They must have a C average to be eligible to participate in athletics. Our team will have a program goal of a 3.0.
2. Discipline- We are very structure, but do not have a lot of rules. Do what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do it, and with the person you are supposed to be doing it with. This encompasses everything. We are consistent, firm, but fair. We treat every athlete the same.
3. Parent expectations- Suppor your child. Support the coaching staff. Pick up your kid on time. Follow up proper medical attention if your child is hurt.
4. Spirit Pack- $300. You will receive 7 on 7 gear, practice gear, game day sweats, travel bag, and girdle. $50 is for misc. needs.
5. Spring training- 9 days of intense workouts and full gear practice. Physicals must be complete a week prior to spring training.
6. Practice expectations- You must be entirely dressed out. Athletic apparel must be worn during practices. Do not miss practice without prior permission. Coaches will determine excused absences, not parents or players. 1 unexcused absences will result in a one game suspension. 2 unexcused absenses will result in a two game suspension. 3 unexcused absenses will result in dismissal from the team.
7. Summer training- See Calender. Workouts will be from 8-11am on Tuesday,Wednesday, and Thursday each week. There will be four 7 on 7 dates
8. Offseason expectations- We encourage players to participate in other sports, but Minor football comes first. There are 21 practices during the summer. Players are allowed to miss three. Anything after that is removal from the team. There will be rewards for perfect attendance.
9. Booster club- Will meet each Tuesday night during the regular season. They are responsible for pregame meals and post game snacks. Also, they will provide a small stipend for the assistant coaches for bonuses. Booster club money will come from parking and fundraising.
10. College recruiting- Performance and grade expectations will be discussed.
