I.​ ​PHILOSOPHY


The​ ​goal​ ​of​ ​the​ ​club​ ​team​ ​program​ ​is​ ​to​ ​help​ ​develop​ ​serious​ ​student-athletes​ ​and​ ​prepare​ ​them for​ ​competitive​ ​high​ ​school​ ​basketball.​ ​Our​ ​experienced​ ​and​ ​knowledgeable​ ​coaching​ ​staff​ ​takes pride​ ​in​ ​the​ ​development​ ​of​ ​the​ ​young​ ​men​ ​and​ ​women​ ​in​ ​our​ ​program​ ​on​ ​and​ ​off​ ​the​ ​court​ ​and serve​ ​as​ ​mentors​ ​to​ ​build​ ​each​ ​player’s​ ​confidence,​ ​work​ ​ethic​ ​and​ ​character. 

Players​ ​will​ ​learn​ ​how​ ​to​ ​compete​ ​at​ ​a​ ​high​ ​level,​ ​prepare​ ​for​ ​and​ ​receive​ ​constructive​ ​criticism, play​ ​fundamentally​ ​sound,​ ​be​ ​disciplined,​ ​and​ ​work​ ​as​ ​a​ ​team.​ ​Our​ ​primary​ ​objective​ ​is​ ​to​ ​foster players​ ​to​ ​be​ ​respectful,​ ​hard-working​ ​students​ ​and​ ​good​ ​people.​ ​

 

All​ ​parties​ ​including​ ​ClubHoops,​ ​the​ ​coaching​ ​staff,​ ​parents​ ​and​ ​players​ ​agree​ ​to​ ​put​ ​the​ ​club​ ​program ahead​ ​of​ ​the​ ​team​ ​and​ ​individuals.​ ​When​ ​decisions​ ​are​ ​made​ ​regarding​ ​conflicts,​ ​the​ ​program​ ​will come​ ​first​ ​while​ ​always​ ​considering​ ​the​ ​best​ ​interests​ ​of​ ​the​ ​team​ ​and​ ​players.​ ​Our​ ​ultimate​ ​goal is​ ​to​ ​help​ ​all​ ​players​ ​reach​ ​their​ ​full​ ​potential​ ​as​ ​basketball​ ​players,​ ​leaders​ ​and​ ​human​ ​beings. 

 

II.​ ​PARENT​ ​EXPECTATIONS​ ​AND​ ​COMMITMENT


Support:​ ​​Parental​ ​support​ ​and​ ​involvement​ ​is​ ​essential​ ​to​ ​team​ ​success.​ ​Parents​ ​must​ ​see​ ​to​ ​it that​ ​the​ ​player​ ​attend​ ​all​ ​club​ ​and​ ​team​ ​functions​ ​(practices,​ ​meetings,​ ​games,​ ​special​ ​events). We​ ​understand​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​times​ ​when​ ​scheduling​ ​conflicts​ ​cannot​ ​be​ ​avoided.​ ​When​ ​a​ ​player​ ​or parent​ ​has​ ​an​ ​unavoidable​ ​conflict,​ ​ClubHoops ​​expects​ ​timely​ ​communication​ ​with​ ​the​ ​coach. 

 

Sideline​ ​Coaching:​ ​​We​ ​will​ ​not​ ​allow​ ​any​ ​coaching​ ​by​ ​parents​ ​on​ ​the​ ​sideline.​ ​Parents​ ​are​ ​asked to​ ​NOT​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​negative​ ​conversations​ ​with​ ​referees​ ​or​ ​parents​ ​of​ ​the​ ​opposing​ ​team.​ ​Any parent​ ​who​ ​engages​ ​in​ ​an​ ​extensive​ ​verbal​ ​dispute​ ​or​ ​argument​ ​with​ ​any​ ​referee​ ​or​ ​opposing team’s​ ​parents​ ​will​ ​be​ ​asked​ ​to​ ​immediately​ ​leave​ ​the​ ​premises.​ ​Vocal​ ​support​ ​and​ ​positive encouragement​ ​are​ ​welcome​ ​and​ ​encouraged. 

 

Instruction:​ ​​Players​ ​will​ ​only​ ​receive​ ​one​ ​set​ ​of​ ​instructions​ ​before,​ ​during,​ ​and​ ​after​ ​practices​ ​or games.​ ​For​ ​this​ ​reason,​ ​ClubHoops​ ​insists​ ​the​ ​team’s​ ​head​ ​and​ ​or​ ​assistant​ ​coach​ ​be​ ​the​ ​only​ ​voice​ ​at all​ ​games​ ​and​ ​practices.​ ​No​ ​one​ ​other​ ​than​ ​the​ ​coaches​ ​listed​ ​on​ ​the​ ​official​ ​roster​ ​may​ ​sit​ ​on​ ​or near​ ​the​ ​team​ ​bench​ ​before​ ​and​ ​during​ ​games​ ​at​ ​any​ ​times,​ ​including​ ​parents​ ​(no​ ​exceptions). 

 

Communication:​ ​​We​ ​encourage​ ​parents,​ ​when​ ​appropriate,​ ​to​ ​communicate​ ​or​ ​ask​ ​questions about​ ​their​ ​child’s​ ​development.​ ​We​ ​ask​ ​parents​ ​to​ ​adhere​ ​to​ ​the​ ​“24-hour​ ​wait​ ​rule”​ ​when addressing​ ​a​ ​coach​ ​regarding​ ​a​ ​concern​ ​or​ ​issue​ ​after​ ​a​ ​practice​ ​or​ ​a​ ​tournament​ ​game.​ ​Wesuggest​ ​parents​ ​encourage​ ​their​ ​child​ ​to​ ​speak​ ​up​ ​and​ ​communicate​ ​for​ ​themselves​ ​with​ ​their head​ ​coach​ ​whenever​ ​possible. 

 

III.​ ​COACH​ ​EXPECTATIONS​ ​AND​ ​COMMITMENT


ClubHoops​ ​coaches​ ​will​ ​conduct​ ​themselves​ ​in​ ​a​ ​professional​ ​manner,​ ​adhering​ ​to​ ​these​ ​standards:

●  Dress​ ​and​ ​act​ ​in​ ​line​ ​with​ ​the​ ​values​ ​and​ ​standards​ ​of​ ​CLUBHOOPS.

●  Help​ ​players​ ​develop​ ​the​ ​individual​ ​skills​ ​to​ ​contribute​ ​to​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​the​ ​team. 

 

●  Address​ ​parent​ ​issues​ ​and​ ​concerns​ ​in​ ​a​ ​respectful​ ​manner.

●  Hold​ ​players​ ​accountable​ ​yet​ ​provide​ ​sound​ ​advice​ ​to​ ​propel​ ​player​ ​in​ ​a​ ​positive​ direction. 

 

Coaches​ ​are​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​the​ ​conduct​ ​of​ ​the​ ​team,​ ​on​ ​and​ ​off​ ​the​ ​court,​ ​when​ ​the​ ​team​ ​is together​ ​and​ ​participating​ ​in​ ​club​ ​events.​ ​Coaches​ ​agree​ ​to​ ​put​ ​their​ ​team​ ​ahead​ ​of​ ​the​ ​individual player.​ ​If​ ​conflicts​ ​arise​ ​between​ ​the​ ​team,​ ​a​ ​player,​ ​parent,​ ​or​ ​coach,​ ​the​ ​head​ ​coach​ ​and Club​ ​Director​ ​will​ ​be​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​making​ ​necessary​ ​changes​ ​for​ ​the​ ​good​ ​of​ ​all​ ​parties involved.​ ​All​ ​decisions​ ​will​ ​be​ ​made​ ​after​ ​gathering​ ​all​ ​relevant​ ​information​ ​and​ ​consulting​ ​with those​ ​involved.
