PARENT AND PLAYER EXPECTATIONS
1. We encourage all players to participate in other sports and non sport activities. Because Club activities are year round we know that players will be participating in other activities during the “off season” and may be unable to participate in all Club activities…and that is “OK.” In order for our players to be the best they can be, we offer significant off-season opportunities so that their skill levels increase and they are ready for the regular season. We ask that players and parents commit to participating in as much off-season activity as possible. However, during the "regular season" from early November through mid-March, we fully expect all players to be at all practices and all games...with all the normal family related exceptions! During the regular season, it is not acceptable if a player also plays on another team, regardless of the sport, and chooses to miss our team's practices or games for the other sport.
2. Team operating costs are high as the club pays the cost of uniforms, league and tournament play, basketballs, and all other practice and team related equipment. The annual player fee only covers approximately 50% of a team's operating costs. The balance is raised primarily from parents participating in a couple very simple, quick and easy fundraisers. Parent involvement is critical in order to achieve our funding goals, and all parents are expected to participate.
3. Our open gyms, clinics and camps, and other special individual and team skill development events referenced above, occur mostly in the “off season.” We strongly urge parents to bring their daughters to these events which are fun, rigorous, build player confidence and self esteem, develop leadership skills, help players bond, and create great team cohesiveness.
