ATTENDANCE POLICY TACKLE DIVISION Please make every effort to attend practices as missed practices will affect playing time and the overall success of the team. In an effort to promote values of team and fairness to all who participate, the following policy will be implemented for the upcoming football season. This will be in full effect the week prior to the first game. However, missing practices in the first few weeks will affect your position on the team, as the coach’s use the first few weeks to set positions.
This attendance policy is not designed to penalize players, but rather promote attendance. We understand that player’s will deal with injuries, illnesses, schoolwork and a number of other activities. However, if a child is dealing with an above situation and misses multiple practices, then they most likely are not ready to play in that week’s game. If a player can be at practice, please send them. If you are questioning whether or not they should be participating that day, please discuss it with a coach. We will not penalize a player who makes the effort to attend and is sent home, and just having a player attend practice and hearing what the coach’s are saying will benefit both the player and the team.
Should an extenuating circumstance arise, please let the coach’s know at your earliest convenience that your child will not be at practice.
Miss 1 practice in 2 consecutive weeks: Player will sit out the entire game on that 2nd week
Miss 2 practices in the same week: Player will sit out the entire game of that current week
"Missed practices" include practices, games, walk-throughs, make-up games, rain-outs or rescheduled practices.
North Haven Youth Football Board of Directors reserves the right to alter the policy stated above to best suit the interest of the league and/or its participants.
