Coaching Agreement

As a volunteer coach for the City of Thornton Girls Softball Program, I will at all times follow and promote the standards listed below:

  1. Safety: The safety of the players will be given the highest priority. I will conduct each practice and game situation with safety as a prime concern. I will learn to recognize the signs of a concussion and not permit any player to continue to play or practice when a possible concussion has occured.
  2. Sportmanship: As a model for my team, I will exhibit good sportsmanship at all times. I will require all my players to exhibit good sportsmanship as well. This includes all interactions with players, coaches, fans (both on opposing and my own team), umpires and staff.
  3. Fun: Regardless of how many games we win or lose, I will strive to make the experience fun for the players. I realize that I do not control the talent level on other teams and many of the other factors that might determine the outcome of games, but I can make the program a positive experience for the players on my team.
  4. Drug Free: I will not permit the use of illegal drugs, alcohol, tobacco or performance enhancing substances at any time while coaching.
  5. Concussion Training: I will take the mandatory online concussion training course and test at the CDC website.

I understand that failure to comply with any of the standards lsited above may result in my immediate removal from the program.
