INTEGRITY - Live up to the high ideal of ethics and sportsmanship and encourage your child to pursue greatness with integrity. Do what’s right even when it’s unpopular or personally costly.
SIDELINE CONDUCT - We ask that parents exhibit self control - and do not fight or show excessive displays of anger or frustration. There is no side line coaching allowed! This is very confusing to our players.
RESPECT FOR COACHES - If there any any questions regarding an athlete’s playing time, or positioning, it is the players responsibility to find an appropriate time to discuss with her coach. We ask that parents allow their child this growth in maturity and respect the expertise and experience of our coaching staff.
RESPECT FOR OFFICIALS - Treat game officials with respect. Don’t complain or argue about calls during or after the game.
Verve Lacrosse believes that playing time during games is a critical factor in the development of individual players. Games provide playing conditions that can be simulated, but not reproduced, in a training environment. Lack of playing time during games inevitably limits a player’s ability to improve technically and tactically.
At the same time, Verve Lacrosse does not believe that players on its competitive teams should receive equal amounts of playing time during games without regard to certain factors. Playing time will be at the discretion of the coach and determined by the following:
• Commitment to attend (and arrive on time for) practices and games
• Effort, attitude, and behavior in practice and in games
• Technical and tactical ability
• Ability to work/play well with teammates
Under no circumstances is it appropriate for a parent or family member to approach a coach about playing time during competition or at a tournament.
