practices to get results

2015 Expectations
• Selflessness
– It is the greatest team game in the world.
Why? Football is the only sport where the
majority of the people on a team don’t get to
touch the ball and/or be in the headlines.

• Trust
– Trust is one of the most difficult things to earn and
even more difficult to get back if you break it! All
good teams trust one another at all times.
• Can teammates, coaching staff, and athletic
administration TRUST your son?

• Discipline/Frame of Mind
– Always be prepared for meetings, practices, and
team functions Don’t talk when teachers, parents
or coaches are talking because you might miss
something important. Arrive on time to school, all
football functions, work, etc… if anything be
early! REMEMBER: If you are on time, you are
late!

• Family
– This team will grow to be like a family. You should
become close to the teammates who are willing to
work hard and sacrifice each day during practices
and training. Learn to care for each other and
great things will happen when
“11 work as 1”

• Preparation (i.e. Practice)
– If you practice, then you play. Nobody will practice
all week without playing in the JV or Varsity game.
– If you have a minor injury or an illness which allows
you to be at school, you are expected to be at practice
to observe and learn.
– Practice time is extremely (more on this in a bit)
– If you have a problem or are upset, see one of the
coaches AFTER practice. We will not argue or debate
any issue on the practice field. It is an “open door”
policy here, so take advantage of it if you need to.

Summer workouts & scrimmages
• Why are summer workouts & scrimmages
important?
–
–
–
–
Install all three phases of the game before the season
Build team unity (family)
Condition physically and mentally (Preparation)

(competition)

Summer workout & scrimmages
• Schedule TWO DAYS A WEEK (exception of first week of
June)
– 7:30am-10am (90% sure on this)
– Probably going to be Tuesday and Thursday because it will not
interfere with basketball or baseball
– Tentative dates for TEAM CAMP: last week of June or week after July
moratorium
– Players and Parents can set up work schedules so workouts can be
attended. I will be meeting with area employers in January and
February to discuss player work schedules
• Scrimmages will be scheduled against:
– Shenandoah, Eastern Hancock, and Knightstown

Summer Breaks
• Players get two weeks off during the summer
– Moratorium #1 (usually around end of June or first week of
July)
– Moratorium #2 (last week before mandatory workouts
begin)
• I know family and vacation time is important, but we
are only working out two days a week and players
get two full weeks off during the summer.

Attendance Policy (Starts Aug. 3rd)
As follows for an unexcused absence:
– 1 missed practice = conditioning and quarters lost
– 2 missed practices = 1 game suspension
– 3 missed practices = off team
•
Unexcused absence defined:
– Not talking to HC about missing practice
– Going on vacation during football season
• Labor Day we will practice at 4pm so if you go on vacation somewhere be back before 4 pm
• Fall Break is the beginning of our state playoffs, no exceptions here. We will practice at 3 pm on Fall
break.
– At school, but skip practice
– Not attending a varsity or JV game.
– Being injured and not showing up for rehab and team support. If a player is injured
they are still part of the team.
– Going to work (a player can set work schedule) ONLY exception farm hand.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY TO SOLVING MANY PROBLEMS

EARNING A VARSITY LETTER

if the RCHS coaching staff feels a player has made
a contribution, he will letter.

Why is all this important?
• Teach your son about
commitment, trust,
selflessness, hard work,
goal setting, etc…
– It is more than just
X’s & O’s
• So your son can make
history here at RCHS
– 1983 last sectional
– 1988 last conference
championship
