The Mission of the Terre Haute North football program is to impact the lives of the student- athletes who participate in the program. We want the boys who enter this program as freshmen, to leave when they are seniors, as young men ready to accept the challenges of life. Our student athletes will: 1. Earn a high school diploma, 2. represent themselves, family, teammates, coaches, and school with class on and off the field, and 3. learn to compete on and off the field.
1. DO WHAT IS RIGHT 2. DO YOUR BEST 3. GOLDEN RULE
1. ATTITUDE-BE POSITIVE 2. WORK HARD 3. NO EXCUSES 4. SENSE OF URGENCY 5. ATTENTION TO DETAIL 6. EXPECT VICTORY 7. FINISH
Three Cs 1. Commitment 2. Character 3. Consistency Three Es 1. Effort 2. Execution 3. Enthusiasm
Violations of team rules may result in the following: PUSH-UPS PPC: Post Practice Conditioning - Can get up to 5 days PROBATION: Repeat offenses, coming off of suspension, cannot start if on probation. Athletes will be in PPC until off probation. SUSPENSION: Cannot play in games, PPC. EXCLUSION: Removed from team Major violations of team rules including use of alcohol, other drugs, violation of state law, etc., will result in a two game suspension. Second offense will result in removal from the team.
I SURROUND MYSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE MOTIVATED Mike Ditka MOTIVATION IS SIMPLE, SIMPLY ELIMINATE THOSE WHO ARE NOT MOTIVATED Lou Holtz MOTIVATION COMES FROM WITHIN, AS WELL AS FROM AN ORGANIZED SYSTEM, DISCIPLINE, A CARING STAFF, GOOD FACILITIES, AND GOOD SCHEMES OUR PROGRAM INCLUDES DISCUSSIONS ON TEAMWORK, LEADERSHIP, COMMITMENT, PERSEVERANCE, ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE, AND CHARACTER. THESE TALKS WILL BE LED BY OUR STAFF, GUEST SPEAKERS, ETC.
1 PLAY IN 20 VARSITY QUARTERS Can earn quarters by: Service learning/charitable projects, off-season commitment, scout team player of the week, honor roll. Scout team player of the year will letter. Coaches discretion.
All out of season functions are as mandatory as they can be without being mandatory COMMITMENT ! All in season functions are mandatory. One unexcused absence will result in a one game suspension. Two unexcused absences will result in removal from the team.
School functions are excused absences. Parental contact before the absence or after an emergency situation may be excused. Hair cuts, senior pictures, fall break, Labor Day, and family reunions are not excused absences. Try to schedule dentist/doctor appointments around practice/school. Lost practice time may result in lost playing time.
HEAT MANAGEMENT CONCUSSIONS MRSA ATHLETIC PHYSICALS MINOR INJURIES MAJOR INJURIES *CHECK WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION
THE NUMBER ONE WAY TO PREVENT INJURIES IS INVOLVEMENT IN OUR STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM. If you are a football player you will be hurt during the course of a season. To play in games you have to be able to practice hurt. If you miss all week due to practice you will more than likely not play on Friday. Hurt versus injured? Our player safety is our number one priority.
If you are injured you are expected to be at every football function: INJURIES ARE NOT AN EXCUSE TO MISS. There will be something for you to do: rehabilitation with our athletic training staff, mental reps, alternative conditioning. If you cannot attend practice inform the head coach.
Injuries that result in an extended loss of practice time will more than likely result in loss of playing time or starting position. Many times when an athlete is cleared there is loss of conditioning, reaction time, strength, etc., or someone else has stepped up during that time. If this seems unfair, put yourself in the position of the player who has worked just as hard, stepped it up, and is playing well.
Can you get the job done consistently better than your teammates? No player owns a position. All positions are constantly evaluated. Players are placed where they will help the team and where the have the best chance to be successful.
99.9% of all parents are emotionally unable to evaluate their son's athletic ability and they do not have the technical expertise to do so. Parents do not have the ability to evaluate their son daily in the areas of work ethic, performance, and attitude. You have to be able to run and like to hit! Your sons perspective???
We will try to have 22 starters at the 9th grade JV, and varsity level. Playing time will be based on the following criteria: a) they have practiced every day; b) they know the plays; c) they can consistently do their job better than others, d) great attitude and effort, and d) they can defend themselves. The 3 Cs (commitment, character, consistency) are part of the evaluation process. This does not mean all playing time will be equal.
Reward. All sophomores on up will have the opportunity to travel but it is a privilege that may be taken away. We wont take those who dont want to be there- eliminate distractions. Only freshmen on the depth chart will travel to varsity games. 9 th grade QBs always travel.
Will involve parent, head coach, position coach, and player or no meeting. This will allow input from every party involved and prevent double talk. This protects all parties involved. Playing time discussion will be kept to a minimum-coaches call. Other players will not be discussed.
All student-athletes have to pass four credits to be eligible. See academic guidelines power point on website.
What I do: Free recruiting services Video Player info sheets Phone calls and faxes College coaches visits with players Combines: NATS, Nike, etc. Other combines/recruiting services-dont waste your money??? If you are good enough to get a scholarship, they will find you in most cases. What can you do? Make contacts on your own or tell me who you want me to contact or send video to.
What I am asked by college coaches: 1. Academic standing (9 th & 10 th grade years are most important)? 2. Character? 3. Work ethic? 4. Height and speed? 5. Commitment and passion toward the game? 6. Does he play other sports? 7. Has he registered with the NCAA Clearinghouse? See website. 8. What is their Facebook account?
Most Division 1 scholarships are offered during Junior year. 1AA and Div. 2 offers scholarships. Div. 3 schools do not offer athletic scholarships but their student-athletes may get better aid packages. Go play if you get the chanceDiv. 3 schools are loaded with All-State FB players
$100 This money goes towards: T-shirt/shorts, game socks, mouthpiece, locker magnet name tag, pre and post game meals, camp food and drinks, etc. This fee may be paid in installments throughout the season. See me to make arrangements. At least $20 has to be paid to get t-shirt/shorts.
After each varsity, jv, and freshmen game we will need parent volunteers to wash the uniforms and towels.
All players will need to have their own weekly planner. They will be checked every Thursday to see if they are being used.
Triquest Every player will be expected to sell 25 cards (friends, family, relatives, neighbors, classmates, classmates parents) Blitz night-Parental permission to ride with another student Other fundraisers
Dr. Jason Winkle Get out of their comfort zones Push beyond their perceived limits Develop teamwork, leadership, physical and mental toughness-create a team bond Permission slip Closing ceremony 1:00 Camos, gloves, old shoes
All are voted on by the staff and players when they are not stat driven-majority are. All conference-I nominate and get to vote All-state I just nominate-no vote All-star teams
It is an expectation that every coach, player, and parent understands what heat illness is, what the signs and symptoms are, and how to prevent and/or treat it. Fluid intake guidelines. How we fight it. Athletic trainer.
No parents on the practice field, game field, or in the locker room. Please pick up your kid on time according to the schedules, they should not have to call. If you dont want your son pushed to his potential, taught to get up when he is knocked down, yelled at, mistakes corrected, disciplined, or pushed out of his comfort zone then football is not for him. Physicals ASAP.
