Playing time, team strategy, play-calling, lineups, substitutions, and other student-athletes on the team.
 

Unacceptable Contact with Your Child’s Coach

Prior to and during practice.
Prior to, during, or after a contest.
These are typically either very busy times or, in the case of a contest, emotional times for all parties involved. Things can and will be said that are not meant. Meetings of this nature do not promote resolution. There are situations that may require a conference between the coach and the parent. These are to be encouraged. It is important that both parties have a clear understanding of the other’s position. When these conferences are necessary, the following procedure should be followed to help promote a resolution. It is of utmost importance that the proper chain of command is followed. Though we understand your desire to talk with the Athletic Director, those phone calls first will be referred to the appropriate coach.

 
If You Have a Concern to Discuss with a Coach, This is the Procedure You Should Follow:

 
Call or email the coach (during an appropriate time) to set up an appointment.

If the coach cannot be reached, email info@crushbaseball.com to help schedule the meeting.
