Practice Arrival  
Players are expected to be on-time for practice.  If a player is going to be late or miss a practice the coach must be notified as soon as possible. Players with continued unexcused missed or late practices can expect to lose playing time.  
 

  1. Unexcused Absences 
    The coach or assistant coach must be notified in advance.  If you are unable to contact them in person, leave a voice message on their answering machine with the date and time of your message. 

    Unexcused absences will result in the following discipline:  
    First incident – one  game suspension.  
    Second incident – two game suspensions.  
    Third incident – suspension from the team, pending review with the coach, Board member(s), and parent.
     
  2. Change in Practice Time
    Coaches or the Team Parent will notify players of changes or cancellations in practice times.
