Clear Creek Volleyball Policies    

The following policies have been established for volleyball players and managers at Clear Creek High School and will be enforced to uphold high standards not only during the playing season, but throughout the year. These policies are to be read, signed by all indicated on the last page, and the policies signature page must be returned to your coach before you may travel to the first scrimmage.

 

I. BUS TRIPS

1. Team members must ride with the team to and from all athletic events. Rare exceptions are

permitted only if a signed permission form is in place with a principal prior to the trip and coach has given approval.  Players will only be allowed to use one alternative travel form per season. Forms must be signed by the principal and given to the coach at least 48 hours before the departure time.  COVID exception this year- if student wishes to drive own car they can do so but must follow the bus to and from the game and can only drive themselves.  If parents wish to drive their own daughter only to and from the games they must do so.  We must have an alternative transportation form every time a player doesn’t drive to or from games on the bus.

2. Team members are expected to inform parents of bus arrival and departure times. Parents are expected to pick up their child within 15 minutes at the latest after the bus has returned to the school.

3. Team members are expected to be on time for scheduled departures. The bus will leave at the designated departure time and will not wait for players who are late for the bus.  If players miss the bus, they must find their own way to the destination and are assuming the risk of traveling on their own. Players will be disciplined for being tardy to the bus.

4. Team members are expected to conduct themselves in a proper manner on the bus and are expected to clean the bus and put the windows up before leaving.

 

II. EQUIPMENT

1. Players will pay for lost or damaged equipment. Reusable equipment is full replacement price.

2. Players will take proper care of all gym facilities and equipment. All players will help to carry equipment on and off the bus and will help to set up and take down the nets.

3. Players must turn in all equipment before they will be released to get a schedule change to their next sport or out of the volleyball class.

4. Players may not wear issued equipment to non Clear Creek Volleyball events.

 

III. PRACTICES, GAMES, ETC.

1. Players are expected to be at practice every day. Players missing practices or games for reasons other than illness and family emergencies are subject to dismissal. Routine medical and dental appointments aren’t an excuse for missing practices or games. Parents should try to schedule these around volleyball as much as possible.  Players missing practice for any reason will not start in the next match and playing time could possibly be very limited or there could be no playing time at all.

2. If an athlete misses practice for any reason, she must contact her coach know by10:00 a.m. Players can also email their coach. This is the player’s responsibility, not the parents.

3. Injured athletes are still expected to be present for all practices and games and are expected to dress out. The only exception is if the athlete is physically unable to be present due to injury.

4. Team members must be present for all Saturday practices and holidays.

5. Athletes will not wear any jewelry during practices or games.

7. Sub-varsity athletes will stay and watch/cheer for varsity games. Varsity players will watch and support the sub-varsity teams as well. Players are expected to sit as a team and only as a team (i.e. not with friends, boyfriends, etc.).  Also, players are expected to not interact with players from other schools before we compete against them on that night.  Players are expected to interact with their fellow CCHS players only before a match.  COVID exception- if subvarsity players do not feel comfortable staying for Varsity matches they may leave to go home but must let coach know. 

8. Athletes representing Clear Creek High School must reflect good sportsmanship on and off the court. A team member showing extreme anger at herself, opponents, teammates, coaches, or officials will be removed immediately from the event.

9. Athletes are assigned lockers and are responsible for locking up valuables.

10. Athletes are responsible for keeping the locker room and storage areas clean.

13. If a player quits the program at any point during the season or off season, it is at the coach’s discretion as to whether the player will be permitted back into the program if the player wishes to return.

The second and subsequent letter awards will be additional bars for the letter jacket.

X. CHAIN OF COMMAND AND PLAYING TIME

If the player wishes to have a meeting with the coach to discuss playing time, the player may do this once per season and may request to do this after a practice or during the athletic period, not before or after a game or tournament. Playing time and which team a player is placed on will not be discussed between coaches and parents.

2. If there are concerns that need to be discussed with the coach that are not playing time related, the following chain of command will be followed: Athletes must first meet with their individual coach. Then, parents and the athlete may meet with the coach. If necessary, the chain of command continues with the Head Coach, Campus Girl’s Athletic Coordinator, Principal, and then Athletic Director.
