Blogs It is our team policy to not post on website blogs or any other website(s). Anyone not adhering to this policy will face disciplinary action.
Player/Coach Conferences All coaches have an open-door policy for conferences with players. Players need to have confidence that their concerns will be heard and addressed with respect and confidentiality in a timely manner. THIS SHOULD BE THE FIRST METHOD OF PROBLEM RESOLUTION
Parent’s Role If you have concern to discuss with a coach: Call or email the coach to discuss the situation. Sometimes an appointment with the coach may be necessary, please schedule one through email or phone. – Please do not bring up concerns immediately after practice or games. PHONE: 561-373-4229 EMAIL: Travis.Klabon@Palmbeachschools.ORG
What can be discussed? 1. Treatment of your child, disciplinary consequences, etc. 2. Ways to help your child improve his or her skills 3. Concerns about your child's behavioral, personal, or academic growth It is very difficult to accept your child not playing as much as you had hoped. Coaches make decisions on the basis of what they believe to be best for the team. While we truly don't believe in "winning at all costs," we make no apologies for coaching for success. As you can see from the list above, certain things can and should be discussed with a coach
What should not be discussed? 1. Amount of playing time, positioning, etc. 2. Team strategies, game tactics, play calling, comparison to other teams, etc. 3. Any discussion about other student- athletes. *We encourage coaches to ignore any concern or criticism delivered anonymously.
Equipment Needs Equipment: Stick Mouthpiece* Shoulder pads Elbow Pads Gloves Cleats Black Helmet *The team has a limited number of equipment sets that can be leased out for the season.
Equipment Issue Each varsity player will be issued the following equipment at the beginning of the season: Team Pinnie* Team Bag (used for the duration of their Varsity Career)
Physicals All physicals need to be completed in their entirety. Each physical has two signatures that need notarization Any physical not completed means the player will not be able to participate until completed. Physicals need to be completed by 10/31/13.
Blood Drive Not During Season There are opportunities to give blood in the fall and end of spring If you need volunteer hours, see me!
Injury Procedures Each contest will have an athletic trainer and AED present. If your son comes home with an injury that has been undisclosed to the coach, please inform the Coach immediately. Any injury should be seen by our athletic trainer FIRST, unless it’s an absolute emergency.
