The Three Pillars of our Program
BE KIND - show respect and compassion to teammates, to coaches, to other competitors and to yourself.
PLAY HARD - we are here to play Ultimate and compete. We work hard to become better teammates and competitors. Giving 100% helps make yourself and your teammates better.
MAKE IT FUN - enjoy your teammates, help build new friendships, bring energy to the team.
As coaches, we work hard to follow these pillars as well. We work to bring a fun energetic hard working atmosphere to the program.
FORMS AND OTHER PAPERWORK
Before students participate, including tryouts, ALL sports paperwork must be turned in to the Eagle Staff main office. Hard copies of athletic packets are available for pick up in the main office.
You can also access all forms on the SPS website.
ALL students will need a doctor-signed physical as a part of the athletic packet, so make sure to make an appointment/request a copy of that ASAP if you don’t already have one.
Fall 2021 Information
TRYOUTS will be held on 9/14 and 9/17 from 4-5:15pm on the Eagle Staff field for all grades.
PRACTICES will be Tuesdays and Fridays on the RESMS turf.
NOTE: Tryout sign-up does not guarantee that your child will be accepted into the program or placed on a team. Factors include roster limitations, practice/game scheduling conflicts, and skill level. Also, while Ultimate is a "non-contact" sport, contact happens, and issues regarding player safety may also be considered.
As coaches, we work hard to follow the Three Pillars noted above as well. We work to bring a fun energetic hard working atmosphere to the program. We practice positive reinforcement.
We know that all can have lapses from time to time. Our steps for reinforcing our Pillars are:
- We will have an open discussion with the player after a practice to address our concerns
- If we don't see improvement, we'll reach out to the player's parents to continue the conversation.
- If the player is still unable to contribute to the team and meet the expectations as expressed in our Pillars, the player will be told to not return to the team.
