Expressing Concerns

If there are any questions or concerns involving some aspect of the athletic program, the student-athlete should first contact the appropriate coach. If there is no resolution, he or she should then go to the head coach, athletic director, or principal. When expressing an occasional concern with a coach, please refer to and use the following guidelines:

  1. Never approach your coach immediately after a contest. This is not a proper time or place for a discussion concerning your child or the team.

  2. Call the following day and make an appointment, which is convenient for both you and the coach to meet.

  3. Raise your concern in a calm and civil manner. Yelling, being rude, or using foul language is totally unacceptable.

  4. Once you have stated your question or concern, listen to the explanation. Listening receptively may really help you to understand any explanation which is given.
