Parents Meeting Presentation Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Importance of a Parents Meeting Why a parents meeting? The pre-season parent meeting is a very important responsibility of the head coach. It allows the head coach to set proper expectations about the upcoming season. Without a preseason parents meeting it will open the coaches up to potential parent frustrations & other issues that could have been avoided. The head coach has to be upfront and honest in the parents meeting . Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Meeting Agenda

But here is our example:
ALWAYS assume we ARE practicing. I will always send a team communication if practice is delayed or cancelled. If NO communication - please arrive ready to practice. There are 80 players and I cannot handle multiple phone calls asking if practice is cancelled. Please monitor your emails. When it is raining we will arrange to go indoors and watch film during the season. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network
Communication Tools Establish your own policy. But here is our example Ways to Communicate: eMail Distribution Text Distribution Social Media Tools Calling Post Face-to-face Recommend Social Media Tools: Team Snap Remind Twitter Facebook Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Communication Policy
Establish your own policy. But here is our example I will always have a open line of communication and respond to you as quickly as I possibly can. Best Way To Contact Me: Via email [email protected] 555-555-5555 (phone or Text) eMail is the preferred communication tool If a phone call is absolutely necessary - OK. Please remember I coach over 100 players and phone calls usually are not answered. I will always reply to email much faster than returning phone calls. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network
Communication Policy Establish your own policy. But here is our example. COMMUNICATION WITH THE COACHES Please do not hesitate to talk to us about any concern regarding your player. We do request that these conversations be conducted in private. We wont discuss team issues in front of the players. No coach will ever discuss another player with you who is not your son. We also ask that you do not approach a coach out of anger. Always remember we are here for you and these young men. The coaches all want a healthy and productive line of communication. If you feel angry, it is always best to walk away and wait 24 hours. After 24 hours, you have had a chance to think through, reach out to us and we can discuss it in a professional, more effective and productive manner. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Uniform and Attire Policy
Establish your own policy. But here is our example Practice Uniform o General practice: players wear a white practice jersey during all practices. o Split practice: offensive players wear black practice jersey and defensive players wear white practice jersey. Under no circumstances shall a player wear their issued game uniform, pants or jersey to practice. Game Day School Attire Players will wear khaki's and game jersey during school on game day.
Travel Attire Players will dress in game pants, under shirt and game jersey prior to loading buses. o On long trips when time and facilities permit players may be required to wear khaki's and game jersey when travelling to away games. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Uniform and Attire Policy Establish your own policy. But here is our example Game uniform: All players will have issued game uniform. We will wear black game socks. Black with a Royal Blue highlight is ok
No solid white or off colored socks during games. Socks can be worn long or short. Under Armor or Nike compression pants as underwear are OK if they are Black. Shoulder Pad Undershirts: We recommend Under Armor or Nike ProCombat-type shirts be worn under the shoulder pads. These types of garments wick moisture, allowing your players body to remain cool. When its gets cold the Nike or Under Armor long sleeve Cold Gear shirts help players retain warmth. White or black sleeves only. No exceptions. NO baggie sweat shirts are allowed under uniforms Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network
Practice Expectations Establish your own policy. But here is our example We Start On Time Please plan ahead and be on the practice field dressed and ready to go 10 minutes early. We will maximize practice time by having a prepared schedule for every practice. It is important that everyone be at the field dressed and ready to practice no later than the stated practice time above. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Practice Expectations Establish your own policy. But here is our example Attendance: Football is the ultimate team sport. One of the biggest lessons that football teaches is you succeed or fail on the field as a team.
Attendance at practice by your player will directly impact both his performance and his enjoyment of the game. Please do not take practice obligations lightly. Missing practices may result in your son not understanding the game plan and therefore not being prepared to play. Social events are not an excuse to miss a team practice. Players must properly manage their academic workload and exercise proper time management so that they do not miss practice. Missing practice will impact a players playing time. Player safety dictates that an unprepared player cannot and will not play. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Practice Expectations Establish your own policy. But here is our example Coaches, players, school administrators, and league or park officials are the only people allowed on the field
during practice. We request that all parents and spectators stay out of the practice area. Safety of both players and spectators are our priority. We respectfully ask that you allow the coaches to coach. Parents and spectators should enjoy watching their player and the team. We ask that there is no parental coaching from the stands so that your players are not confused and can hear the coaches from the sideline during practice and games. Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Play Time Expectations Establish your own policy. But here is our example Playing Time Is Earned The 8th-grade level is a transition year for the players and PARENTS alike. There is no minimum play rule at this age group. Players do not have to get playing time during a game. Playing time will be earned during practice.
Copyright 2017 Calloway Football / Calloway Football Network Play Time Expectations Establish your own policy. But here is our example Playing Time Is Earned We have 45 players on the roster We have 9 coaches Player-to-coach ratio allows us to ensure every player is properly coached. Practices will be organized with a purpose EVERY player will get plenty of practice time and opportunity to improve I can guarantee EVERY player will improve and will be given equal opportunity to earn game
playing time It is not possible to get 45 players into a single game. Only 11 can be on the field at a time. What the players will not lack is quality practice time an great instruction. It is our goal to always treat every player with respect when it comes to playing time. The coaches will not lose sight of the fact that this is a developmental year. Each player will be provided the proper opportunity to develop their skills and improve throughout the season. Our goal is to make sure every player is a better young man and football player as they move on to the next level.
