8 SOUNDS GOOD….BUT HOW DO WE GET THERE? VALUES  Honest, Direct and Respectful Communication  “Honoring the Absent”  Going to Source of Conflict  Seek to Understand before being Understood  Hierarchy of Interests  Each team will develop team-specific goals  Players need to subordinate personal interests to meet team goals. Teams may need to sacrifice to meet program goals.  Not just about results…the journey is what’s most important  Fun, Discipline, Rigor, Learning Mentality  Results will follow  Excellence in everything we do and how we conduct ourselves  Players/Parents/Coaches alike JHS Team Individual

9 TEAM SELECTION PHILOSOPHIES One eye on short term and the other on long term  Having virtually the entire varsity team be seniors is not in the long term best interests of the program.  Still, every year, we want to field the most competitive varsity team possible.  With exception of 9 th grade team, teams will be formed by player contribution to the team and not by grade  VARSITY  Best team possible  Most skilled individuals and contributors to team environment  9 th -12 th grade  Highest focus on result….playing time may be limited  JUNIOR VARSITY  Training ground for Varsity  Most skilled individuals and contributors to team environment not on Varsity  9 th -12 th grade  Must be ready to play on Varsity in case of injury or tactical need  Balanced focus on Result/Development….playing time less limited but not necessarily equal
