Mission Statement of the Waccamaw Girls Lacrosse ProgramThe Mission of Waccamaw High School is to provide a safe, nurturing environment that prepares students to function productively in a diverse, democratic and technological society.
Varsity Roster 2018Coaching Philosophy
Developing skill, sportsmanship, the value of teamwork, and hard work without sacrificing fun.?
1. Open door policy with player and parents (with Guidelines) consider myself a players coach
2. My team will play hard and work hard
3. To always be a student of the game
4. Let the Lacrosse officials do their job
1) Adhere to Wiaa and bothell academic rules
2) Violating the Drug and Alcohol Policy will. The severity of the punishment will be in accordance with the Drug and Alcohol Policy.
3) If you miss practice or cannot complete a practice the day before a game you will not start. Schoolwork is not an excuse. Rehab of an injury can be done at practice
4) Missing the team bus will result in suspension for one or more games
5) Negative talk about teammates in or out of the Lacrosse environment will mean loss of playing time and/ or removal from team!
6) Practice will start on time! Players not prepared to start working at the scheduled practice time could see a dramatic drop in playing time.
7) Practice time is for Lacrosse not socializing! I expect players to be totally focused on Lacrosse during training sessions. Playing time will be affected by violating this rule.
The ideal Waccamaw High School varsity Lacrosse players will have an above average ability to think the game and posses the technical skills needed to compete in one of the toughest games. Varsity-level players will need an exceptional level of fitness to meet the physical demands of a grueling season. To stay on the Varsity team players must work hard and meet all team rules and school objectives. If a player fails to follow team rules or practice work rate falls below team expectations the player will be moved to a lower-level team or suspended until the player is back in compliance. Returning to the varsity level after suspension is NOT guaranteed! Varsity is an earned privilege not a right!
As a coach, I like to reward all players who work at practice with playing time. But the first priority of the Varsity squad is to compete for the Warrior Title. Playing time at the Varsity level is NOT guaranteed. All members of the team have an equally important role, how well and how much effort is put into that role will factor into a players playing time. Starting positions will be earned at practice! Other factors effecting playing time will be grades, injuries, and a player?s compliance with all team and school rules.
Communicating with Coaches
Players with individual or team concerns need to be their own advocate. The Coaching staff has an OPEN DOOR POLICY!
Step 1) Player meeting with Varsity Coach
Step 2) Player and Parent meeting with Varsity Coach/AD
Junior Varsity Team
The JV team is a developmental squad of 18 to 23 players who need tactical development to go with their above-average lacrosse skills. JV players maybe asked to train at multiple positions to increase future flexibility for Varsity. The attitude and work ethic a player demonstrates could slow down or speed up the advancement to the varsity level.
The JV training environment will be the same as varsity in intensity and competitiveness. Training sessions will focus 25% on skill development, 50% on tactical thinking and 25% on fitness improvement. School rules are the same for JV as they are for varsity. JV players that work hard and improve will be eligible to move up to a vacant varsity slots during the current season.
US Lacrosse Code of Conduct. Players are to conduct themselves in a manner that "Honors the Game" and demonstrates respect to other players, coaches, officials, parents, spectators and fans. In becoming a member of the lacrosse community an individual assumes certain obligations and responsibilities to the game of lacrosse and its participants. The essential elements in this "Code of Conduct" are HONESTY and INTEGRITY. Those who conduct themselves in a manner that reflects these elements will bring credit to the sport of lacrosse, themselves, their team and their organization.
With the experience of being a player and a coach I have come up with a few rules that I hope will make your job as parent and mine as coach easier for the both of us.
1.) I am the only coach!
If you coach from the stands I will ask you to stop! If you?re coaching is affecting your sons play I will remove him from the game so he and I can talk about what I expect
2.) Be your child?s best fan!
Support your daughter win or lose, good game or bad. Let her talk to you about the game if they want to.
3.) Support all the players!
At home let your daughter let out her frustration, but encourage your daughter to face the problem herself and solve it by going to the coaches or their teammates.
4.) Display good game behavior
Keep your emotions in check
5.) Monitor your sons stress level
Is she sleeping and eating right? Is she getting his homework done? Playing on a school team, club team and keeping grades up is very demanding.
6.) Keep lacrosse in prospective
7.) Have fun at games and enjoy the competition
Off the field situations that are affecting your daughter?s ability to enjoy Lacrosse at Waccamaw need to be brought to my attention. Concerns about playing time or other Lacrosse team issues are your daughter's responsibility. Support her but let her learn to handle tough issues.
