Practice policies

Our goal is to create a safe and productive environment for athletes to learn and grow. With this in mind, we will do our best to find different ways to challenge them and increase their potential. Athletes who are disruptive to this environment will simply be asked to leave. We want what is best for everyone and will continue to move towards this goal. Disruptive behavior includes but is not limited to: harassing other athletes or coaches verbally or physically, negative or demeaning language, and disrespect towards coaches parents or teammates. The coach of each group has full discretion to dismiss athletes as they see fit. Depending on the circumstances refunds will not be offered.


Make up sessions

The only circumstance that will cause us to reschedule a practice day is due to weather. Many of the athletes on our team drive hours to make it to our practice sessions. With respect to them and their time we will cancel practice in advance so that they do not waste a trip. We will do our best to reschedule sessions at a reasonable time, but due to time constraints with the school and their many activities, this may not be possible. All practice sessions must be used before Thursday June 20th.
