We are lucky to have a certified Athletic Trainer at the school. She assists with all athlete injuries, and is a catalyst between the coaches and any medical issues arising with the players.

Injuries:
If you student is injured or hurt during a game or practice, they will be referred to Lindsay by a Coach. Lindsay will see and evaluate the injury and give some instruction on what to do next. She is also in close communication with medical staff in Bend, and with us as coaches so we are taking proper measures to return the player back to play, or rest them further. This includes Concussion evaluations and return to play protocol.

Accountability and Communication:
Your children are growing up, and are in High School now. For us as coaches, that means keeping them accountable for their own schedules and behaviors. This includes what to wear at practice and games, as well as any changes to our practice schedule. If you have a question about the schedule, or something else, please check with your player first before talking to the coaches. It is likely they will know the information.

Weekly Email:
As you may already know, throughout the season, I will send you a weekly email with information about the schedule and happenings for the week. If you haven’t seen an email yet, please check your spam folder.

Schedule @ OSAA
Our game schedule is located at: https://osaa.org/teams/36198
Use the tabs above the Schedule to see the JV Schedule.
This schedule may change throughout the season. The coaches will update the players with any changes, as well as noting them in our weekly email.

Code Of Conduct/Player Expectations:
Earlier this season, we sent home a couple of forms for the players (and parents) to read, sign, and return. The Player Expectations form lists some of the basics that are expected from them throughout the season, and the Code OF Conduct is a form for both players and supporters/parents to adhere to during contests and games. The current 2021 version of the Code of Conduct has been modified to reflect the COVID protocols of no parents in attendance at games and practices.

Playing Time:
We are a competitive program, and although we like to make sure players get maximum amount of playing time, playing time will not necessarily be equal. Playing time on the JV Team(s) my be more equal than on the Competitive Varsity team.
Playing time for the individual player will take into account a lot of factors including skill, work ethic, behavior, and adherence to player expectations.
We encourage players who would like more playing time to discuss that with their coach.

2021 Travel:
ALL travel for the 2021 season will be self provided. The players will be given a time to meet at the game location, and will need their own transportation to get there. Players are also in charge of having their own transportation home. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will a coach give any player a ride to or from any team event.

Questions:
If you have any questions, please email Coach James at mvcougarsoccer@gmail.com.
