– Instructions to your son or corrections to the officials from
the sideline are counter productive and confuses the
players on the field.
• Please respect the coaches/officials and the job they
– Negative comments or language towards game officials is
strongly discouraged.
• Coaches will do their best to provide equal playing time for the regular
tournament games to the players that attend practice sessions and are solid
team players.
– There are circumstances throughout each game that can limit a coaches’ ability to provide
equal playing time. Please know the coaches do their best to manage the playing time.
• This is a competitive program and once each team enters the playoff
portion of a tournament, the coach is no longer bound to provide equal
playing time during the playoff games of a tournament.
– If your son has a question about his playing time, please have the player
address the coaches at an appropriate time.
• The middle of a game is NOT an appropriate time. If the player is still unclear you can
approach the coach and RATIONALLY discuss your concerns.
• ALL of our coaches have a tremendous amount of experience. You may not always
agree with them, but providing unequal playing time is never done on purpose!
• If your son cannot make a practice we expect the PLAYER to call the coach
and explain his absence. Rosters will be provided with coaches contact
