“Everybody has a part. For the standard to be the standard in that stadium. It don’t matter who we play, what time we play, where we play. It’s Everybody COMMITTED to doing their best on and off the field in everything that we do.”
- Brent Venables
Leadership is important, a leader is defined as "an act of leading a group of people or organization."
A leader does not have to be a senior, a leader can be anyone who shows aspects of creating an environment. This can be a freshman to a senior.
Seniors are expected to lead.
Seniors are expected to show underclassmen how equipment should be taken care of, how clean up should be done, and how to act towards coaches and other players.
This team and this group will be full of great leaders.
Commitment is "the state of being dedicated to a specific cause or activity."
Commitment is key to a successful team. EVERYONE will show up and perform their roll for their teammates.
We understand that there are specific circumstances that will occur during the year. I am flexible, However, you must communicate with your coaches, be proactive instead of reactive.
We all have to be committed to become a successful team.
Always be on time and prepared with your needed equipment.
Communication is defined as the means of sending and receiving information."
Communication is key to a successful team
Communication is vital on and off the field.
On the field communication will be used to communicate game situations, where to throw the ball on a certain plan, and cheer on your team.
Communication is vital in the dugout.
Also off the field communication is key, being proactive is better than being reactive. If you are going to miss practice for any reason please talk to me first whereas reactive is not letting me know and dealing with the consequences after the fact.
Coaches will communicate with your through multiple ways that include:
Players are responsible for keeping up with updates and relaying that information to parents/guardians.
We should respect each other, there will not be any disrespect to another player, teammate, or coach.
Show your care about each other by taking care of each other.
Be respectful to all, even when you do not feel you are getting the same in return.
Respect your teachers in the classroom and have good attitudes about assignments.
Be the best you can be to your parents.
Respect your coaches, always say "yes ma'am," "no ma'am," and "yes sir," and "no sir."
Coaches will have the utmost respect for the players as well, coaches will not disrespect the players under any circumstances.
Coaches are here as a guide to provide the best information to make you the best players you all can be.
Coaches will provide information and players are expected to be coachable.
When being coached do not have an attitude. We care about you and your success in being not only a better player but a better person.
The classroom matters.
Respecting your teachers is important even when you feel they are not respecting you.
By respecting and acting how you are supposed to in class, the teacher is more willing to go the extra mile mile to help you when you are struggling.
I will be getting grade reports throughout the season and checking on your classroom behavior.
Your grades are important! This is one of your jobs. This helps the team. Being unable to play only hurts the team and the sisterhood.
