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 designated area
  • Not behaving during pickup


Final Information
-All communication will be done via email and the webpage (under the "Activities" tab)

-Please check it frequently for updated information.

-Any questions please contact coaches Kristen Desper, Matt Kochert, and Suzie Pattison
