  3. Team Success: The team's success is paramount, and playing time is awarded based on both individual abilities and what is best for the team.

    Guidelines for Playing Time:

  5. Practice Attendance: Regular attendance at practices and commitment to skill development are essential for earning and maintaining playing time. Players who attend practice consistently and show a willingness to improve will be given priority.

If a player or parent has concerns about playing time decisions, they may request a meeting with the coaching staff to discuss the issue. Such discussions should be carried out respectfully and in a constructive manner. The coaching staff will review the concern and provide feedback and resolution as appropriate.
