    8/3/23: Meet the Pack Parent Meeting Info.

    Parent Meeting Agenda

    Sign In Document

    Important Items to Remember for Program Participation:

    --> Program handbook will be shared at our Meet the Pack Parent Meeting.

    -No pass, no play policy.  Athletes must maintain a passing grade of 70% in all classes.  Our preference is no grades below an 85%.  Eligibility calendars and requirements will be shared at our parent meeting and on our Team App for you to access.  Questions, please reach out.

    -Our student-athletes are expected to be early to classes, engaged, and not a discipline concern in a teachers' classroom.  We are where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there.  Respectful, kind and courteous to our fellow peers and adults.  Student-athletes are expected to communicate with teachers on needs, and actively communicate with their coaching staff in regard to absences and appointments, prior to a practice schedule.  Messages are sent via our Team App text chat options and via the head coaches' email.

    - If there are conflicts that arise with scheduling or unexpected events, speak with the head coach in advance.  We do ask that when we are in season, and you are scheduling appointments, please refrain from scheduling those on our Monday, Wednesday and Thursday in-period practice sessions.  Game days of Tue/Fri are light walk-throughs.  Your daughter involvement and role is critically important to our whole team.  When practice sessions are missed, it obviously impacts the entire team and plan for that session.  Thank you in advance for helping out here.

    Note:  In the event that a participant chooses not to comply with our program expectations or operating procedures, participation in events will be restricted until program compliance is met.  If expectations are still not followed in a reasonable amount of time, or at the direct request of the coach, the participant could be suspended from games or practices, placed on a behavior contract; or at the coaches' discretion, ultimately, program removal and a schedule change may occur.  Participation is a privilege, not a right in extra-curricular athletics. 

    At Weiss, we will always represent our athletic program, our campus and our district with class, dignity and respect.  Being able to represent the Weiss family name and the core values of our program, is a privilege and a responsibility. Remember as a student-athlete, expectations are higher for you and we are always an ambassador of our community.  Our young women do an outstanding job of representing our program and campus.  Thank you ladies.  Keep striving to be the standard, never the exception... #EarnedNotGiven
