Attendance, Participation, and Dress Code - Football

We cannot stress enough the importance of practice to contribute to your children's continued improvement, development, and success on the field. We encourage you to make sure your child can attend and participate in all scheduled practices and scrimmages. Failure to attend practice or failure to participate in practice can and will impact your child's ability to participate on game days. We allow each team's head coach the ability to determine their own attendance policy and disciplinary actions, and urge you to communicate with them in advance if at any time your child will not be at practice or will be late.Failure to participate will also affect your child's playing time, including waiving of the minimum play guidelines below.

We expect our Junior Eagles to be respectful of each other and the adults who are helping them. We are teaching them to think as part of a team and the larger community. As such, conduct and behavior detrimental to the team, league, or fellow participants will not be tolerated. This includes bullying (verbal and physical), fighting, swearing/obscene language, or the use of violence in any form. This includes, practices, conditioning sessions, and game days as well. Failure to follow these rules may result in disciplinary actions as prescribed by the team Head Coach, the Director of Football, or a decision by the Board of Directors. Disciplinary actions may include loss of playing time/suspension, or removal from the program.

Dress Code:
Coaches may determine the equipment their teams will wear for a given practice, based upon weather, practice plans, and team needs. However, if your child fails to wear the prescribed uniform for that practice or game, they may not be eligible to participate.

Minimum Play Policy - Football

As an organization, we will always prioritize player safety first and foremost when determining player participation and playing time. We also believe that playing time is best determined by hard work, discipline and good practice habits. In consideration of this, we will make our best effort to ensure every player plays a minimum amount of plays per game (playoff games excluded), based upon rostered team size on game day:

·         11-20 players – 6 plays

·         21-30 players – 4 plays

·         31 + players – 2 plays

In order for the player to qualify for their minimum number of plays, they must be able to demonstrate the following (at a minimum):

·         Player can demonstrate a proper stance for the position he or she is asked to play

·         Player must be able to line up in the proper position/ place on the field

·         Player must have a basic understanding of the difference between offense and defense

·         Player must be aware, focused and engaged enough to protect him or herself and not put players around them at an increased risk of injury.

The minimum play count may be reduced due to reasons that include (but are not limited to):

·         Absence or lack of participation in practice

·         Disciplinary actions taken by coach, parent, or school

·         Poor or disrespectful behavior towards coaches, parents, teammates, opposing players, or referees

·         Injury or Sickness

·         Failure to report to games at designated time

·         Player Safety Concerns

If the head coach feels that playing the minimum amount of plays may results in an unsafe situation for the player, they may reduce the number of plays for an individual as necessary. Such concerns should be expressed to the parents, the Director of Football, and the President/Vice-President of the SPYFC no later than Thursday of game week.

Each team will designate one sideline coach per game to track player participation. If players have not been in the game for at least half of their designated minimum plays by the start of the fourth quarter, they will enter the game to start the quarter and remain in the game until they have played their designated minimum plays.

Attendance, Participation, And Dress Code - Cheerleading


If you are planning a vacation, please let the Head Coach know as soon as possible. If your child is unable to make a practice, please text the Head Coach 24 hours prior- excluding a family emergency or just got sick that day- if either of those happen, text the Head Coach as soon as you know! If your child is unable to make a game, please let the Head Coach know the beginning of that week!

If your child misses more than 1 practice per week, they cannot participate in the half-time routine, but they are welcome to cheer with their team otherwise. It is your responsibility to be caught up on any missed cheers. You can find them on our Facebook page! If you do not know the cheers come game day, you will not be able to participate.

In the beginning of every practice, we will be having conditioning- this is to ensure we are building up the strength of our girls so they can jump, stunt, or tumble without possible injury! Please have your child at practice on time, or 10 minutes early- if you are expecting to be late, please text or call the Head Coach so we can make sure they are stretched and conditioned before jumping into cheers, stunts, jumps, or tumbling!
