                                    **   PLAYING TIME **

Our teams will be playing at a very competitive level.  With this in mind, please understand that all players will not be given equal amounts of playing time based on just being a member of the team.  Each player must earn playing time by working hard and putting forth the extra effort during practice times and games.

                                   **    PARENT INFO   **

As a reminder, unfortunately we as coaches will make mistakes during the course of a season.  Additionally, we may have a totally different point of view from the parents.  If you have a concern with a coach, please talk to them first, but please, NOT DURING THE GAME OR DURING THE PRACTICE SESSION.  We will gladly make time to meet with a parent to discuss their concerns. 

We are looking forward to working with the young athletes during the season and we will strive to represent our organization with the utmost integrity.  We will work hard to be the best we can be.
