COACHES CORNER

Coaches...

This is where you will find all the pre-season, in-season and post-season forms and information you need. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Church. Here is the link for the most up-to-date coach's handbook

PRE-SEASON

Uniforms:
There will be a uniform handout schedule given to you from the athletic department. There will be a team uniform inventory sheet there for you to fill out. Please make a copy for yourself and leave the original in the athletics office after you are finished handing out uniforms. The extra uniforms will stay with the athletic department for any athlete who was not there on handout day. 

Forms:
You will be notified if you need to give a hard copy of any documents (Concussion certificate, First Aid/CPR certificate, and Coach certificate) to the athletics office.

Online Registration for Athletes:
You will have access to read your sport's "athletic forms" and see if the athletes are eligible to participate in your sport. If a student-athlete is not on the roster or has a red dot next to their name, that means that they are not allowed to participate. They are only allowed to participate when they have a green dot next to their name.

Captains:
Make sure you let Kim Church know who your varsity team captains are as soon as you appoint them (if applicable).

Pre-season Meeting:
You will have a pre-season meeting with the Athletic Director before each season starts. 

You need to bring bus departure time requests for any away events and any sport specific content (Team rules, goals, vision, conditioning, etc...). At the meeting would be a good time to let the Athletic Director know of any conflicts you have with your game schedule.

 

IN-SEASON

Team Picture Day:
You will be notified of when team pictures will be. Your team must wear their full uniform that day.

Senior Night/Day:
As soon as you find out when your senior day is going to be, let Kim Church know so she can order senior bouquets for the game.

Forms:
Emergency Action Plan  -  This is for your information in case of an emergency at an away or home event.

Accident Report  -  If any of your athletes obtain a major injury during a game/event, you must fill one of these out and hand it in to the athletics office.

Away Game forms:
Bus Time Sheet  -  This must be filled out and signed by yourself and the bus driver for every away game/event.

CIAC Sports  -  This is the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference website that will have all of the information you will need for anything pertaining to your individual sport's season.

Bus Schedule:
You will be emailed every Thursday or Friday with a bus schedule for the upcoming week. You need to look it over and email Kim Church back with any changes that need to be made to the schedule.


POST-SEASON

Uniforms: (ALL COACHES)
You will have a uniform collection day where all players must hand in their uniforms. Once the uniforms have been collected, please leave the inventory sheet of who still has not handed in their uniform yet in the athletics office. It is NOT the responsibility of the athletic department to get all of the uniforms back. If an athlete did not hand in their uniform at the designated time to hand them in, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure that they hand in their uniforms. Athletes will also be responsible for paying a fee for any lost uniforms.

Forms:

Awards List  -  (Varsity Coach Only) Please fill this out for all players in your specific sport (freshmen, jv, and varsity) and hand it back in to the athletics office. This needs to be done BEFORE your end of the season banquet/party so certificates and awards can be ordered and printed.

New Equipment Request  -  (Varsity Coach Only) Please fill this out and hand it back in to the athletics office (This is the only way the Athletic Director will know what to order for the next season with regards to new equipment).

Post-Season Meetings and Coach Evaluations:
You will have your post-season meeting with the Athletic Director after your season is over and you have completed the Coach Evaluation through Google Forms. The AD will share the google form with you when necessary. Every Varsity coach must have a post-season meeting with the AD. Make sure to complete the Coach Evaluation before you come to the meeting.

Team Surveys about Coaches:
Every team must have a meeting at the end of the season to complete the Post-Season Student-Athlete Survey through Google Forms. The AD will share the survey with each team once the coach tells the AD the date that the team is meeting on.
