PowerPoint Presentation: ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT MISSION Holy Innocents ’ Episcopal School seeks to provide a broad opportunity of interscholastic activities for both male and female students in grades 6 through 12 which will support the Holy Innocents ’ philosophy: “ worth and dignity of each student-athlete. ” Personal traits, including commitment, discipline, team cooperation, individual leadership, sportsmanship, and consideration of others, are emphasized and vital to the success of the Holy Innocents ’ athletic program. An athletes well-being comes first, winning second. ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION PHILOSOPHY It is the intent of Holy Innocents ’ to provide every opportunity for our sixth through twelfth grade students to participate in as many interscholastic athletic activities as possible. While some of our sports require a limitation on the number of participates, others are open to all. We encourage all our students to be aware of opportunities to participate and take advantage of them. Varsity competition emphasizes winning yet in an environment that allows the athlete to succeed by meeting personal performance goals. JV teams are structured to provide training and prepare athletes for the varsity level. Middle School teams are developmental in nature and are focused on exposing athletes to a sport(s) and providing opportunities for growth within that sport. Mission and Philosophy PowerPoint Presentation: ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT GOALS The primary goals of the Holy Innocents ’ Episcopal School Athletic programs are to accentuate the development of the whole student and to achieve a personal level of excellence in the areas of fitness, team commitment, and sportsmanship. When a student chooses to become a member of a team, the choices he or she makes will have an impact on not just one ’ s own goals, but on the goals of the team. For this reason, athletics is one of the most significant tools in the educational process of character development and helps to encourage students to lead by example.

General Communication PowerPoint Presentation: As student-athletes become involved in athletics, they will experience some of the most rewarding moments of their lives. It is important to understand that at times athletes also may experience disappointment and frustration. At these times, player-initiated discussion with the coach is recommended and encouraged. Coaches should communicate their expectations for all players on their teams and also communicate the locations and times of all practices, team policies, required equipment, and off-season conditioning expectations. Coaches are professionals. They make decisions based on what they believe is best for the team and all student-athletes involved. Sometimes it is difficult to accept that a student-athlete is not playing as much as he or she or the parent desires. However, the judgment and authority of the coach to make decisions regarding playing time must be respected. It is not appropriate for a parent to question or challenge a coach's decision regarding play calling or team strategy. It is never appropriate for a parent to discuss with a coach the status of another student-athlete. placeholder1 Player/Parent/Coach Communication PowerPoint Presentation: Please do not attempt to confront a coach directly before, during, or after a practice or contest . These can be emotionally charged times for athletes, coaches, and parents. Meetings of this nature do not promote satisfactory resolutions. Should a parent wish to meet with a coach, the parent should wait at least 24 hours after a contest to schedule the meeting. There are situations that may require a conference between the coach and the parent. These meetings are encouraged. If a parent has a concern and would like to discuss it, he or she should call or email to schedule an appointment with the coach. If the coach cannot be reached, call the Athletic Office so a meeting can be arranged for you. If a parent has an unresolved concern and would like to discuss it, he or she should call to schedule an appointment with the appropriate Assistant Athletic Director. If the parent still has an unresolved concern, he or she should contact the Athletic Office to schedule an appointment with the Athletic Director. Placeholder 1 Player/Parent/Coach Communication PowerPoint Presentation: Is it okay to contact an opposing school or the local media with concerns? No. Please contact the HI Athletic Director if you believe there is an issue with an opposing school. The AD will follow-up with the opposing school. Is it okay to contact the GHSA with questions or concerns? No. Please contact the HI Athletic Director or the School Administration if you have questions or concerns about matters relating to the regulations of participating in interscholastic sports as well as concerns about other schools. Player/Parent/Coach Communication PowerPoint Presentation: In keeping with the mission of HI, it is extremely important to the administration of the school that all parents, spectators and athletes conduct themselves at events with the highest level of good sportsmanship. Always cheer in a positive manner. Positive cheering leads to positive results. Positive talk in the stands. Nothing good comes of degrading the players and coaches from the stands. Do not talk to the officials before, during or after a competition. Keep all comments about officiating to a minimum. We want the athletes to concentrate on what is about to happen, not on what has already happened. Please do not communicate with the athletes from the start of the warm-up until the end of competition, other than to cheer their efforts. We want our athletes to remain focused on the team and able to follow the guidelines of the coaching staff. placeholder1 Sportsmanship PowerPoint Presentation: Please keep in mind that derogatory remarks to your child about teammates and coaches often sends mixed signals and will likely result in team chemistry issues.
