NCAA member schools have adopted rules to create an equitable recruiting environment that promotes student-athlete well-being. The rules define who may be involved in the recruiting process, when recruiting may occur and the conditions under which recruiting may be conducted. Recruiting rules seek, as much as possible, to control intrusions into the lives of student-athletes.
The NCAA defines recruiting as “any solicitation of prospective student-athletes or their parents by an institutional staff member or by a representative of the institution’s athletics interests for the purpose of securing a prospective student-athlete’s enrollment and ultimate participation in the institution’s intercollegiate athletics program.”
Welcome to SMCHS,
This is a special place for your daughters to matriculate and grow into fine young ladies. Our school and program is Christ centered and Caritas Christi is the compass that guides us. Be assured myself and the coaching staff will treat your daughters with respect and dignity in every capacity. The High School experience is short and the soccer season is even shorter. Stay positive with each other and your daughter. There are many life lessons that come from playing sports so enjoy this small moment in your daughters life. The coaching staff and myself would like to convey some clear guidelines and expectations listed below.
*Coaching staff will never discuss soccer strategy or playing time with parents.
*Encourage your daughter to personally speak to the coaches when there is confusion regarding but not limited to:
- Understanding and Executing Tactical expectations.
- Roles within the Formation that is being utilized in a given match.
- Personal struggles such as injuries, illness and necessary treatments.
Players are to initiate these conversations, rather than parents. Understand that the coaching staff has a method of creating success for the program and it’s athletes. Parents should not interfere with this process. There will be successes and failures but we need to keep to our core convictions regarding SMCHS and the Girls Soccer Program.
Parents must understand that only 11 players can be on the field at one time. There is an ongoing performance based competition in trainings and games that will determine the 11 players and subs participating on game day. This will always be at the coach’s discretion. Playing time could differ from match to match and players are to honor their commitment to the program regardless of the amount of playing time they receive.
Finally, the coaching staff understands there will be moments in which you disagree with methods, strategy, subbing and even the ref during a match. Be assured we will conduct ourselves in a manner that represents SMCHS and program in the highest regard. Parents on the sideline are expected to as well.
