Transportation Fee and Donation Form_______________________________________________________________________________Message to Parents of All Athletes:Many young athletes try out for our school teams and typically only 15 or fewer will make the team. Making the Folsom Middle School team in and of itself is a huge accomplishment. The philosophy of our program is to give all athletes a chance to experience a tryout procedure and participate in an abbreviated high school type of sports experience.
There are a couple of important pieces of information that Folsom Middle School Athletics would like to share with our families. The first is, with regard to the amount of playing time each athlete gets during a game. This is a decision that is left entirely up to the coach. There is no policy, at this level, that athletes on the team are entitled to play a certain amount of time. If this is an area of concern, then you and your athlete may want to reconsider being part of the Folsom Middle School team.
The second piece of information involves your support for your athlete at the games, along with honoring the coaches and the officials and their decisions. We ask that your cheering be respectful and encouraging to the teams that are playing – whether you are for or against a particular team. We also ask that you do not become confrontational towards the officials on “calls” made by the officials that you don’t agree with. We know others may exhibit inappropriate behavior, but we ask that you remain positive and supportive to the coaches, officials, athletes, and the game.
Finally, if you have a concern or disagreement with the coach, we ask that you wait until an appropriate time (24 to 48 hours cool off period) to discuss the matter.
We look forward to a great season and thank you for your support.
