PARENTS CHECKLIST:

– Parents are advised to follow the “24 hour rule” implemented for the period immediately after the game which allows the coach time to focus on his/her players and at a more appropriate time, address parent/spectator feedback.

– Single use water bottles are STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
Players should use their REUSABLE water bottles at practices and games. In addition, water is the only fluid allowed in the gym and practice areas.

– Whenever possible, please refrain from calling the coach or convener around dinner time. Remember the coaches and conveners are volunteers who usually also work full-time and would like to spend some quiet time with their families.  Please send an email inquiry and we will respond as quickly as possible.

– Be prompt when bringing players to practices and games and also when picking them up. Players should arrive 15 minutes before the start of their game.

– If your child wears eyeglasses, be certain that the lenses are shatterproof or plastic. You may also want to consider protective eyeglass goggles and a mouth guard.

– Time to time, teams will be required to provide one scorekeeper and one timekeeper for each game; parents are expected to fill these roles. This commitment is inherent to the success of the House League Program.

– Please become familiar with the convener/s for the division your child is playing in.
