    Behavior Expectations

    • Students will be given two strikes before they are dismissed from the team (first strike=warning, second strike=dismissal). 
    • The coaches will be the judge of whether or not a situation is worthy of a strike.

    Students will receive a ticket at the end of practice that will be given to the parent/guardian to make sure everyone is aware of what happened.

    If a student goes to Y-Care after practice, students will need to take the ticket home and have it signed by the next practice. Some situations that can warrant a strike are:

    • Hitting
    • Kicking
    • Tripping
    • Pushing
    • Being disrespectful to coaches or other students
    • Not staying on task/leaving a designated area
    • Not behaving during pickup
