Cortlandt Wave

Code of Professionalism

 Objective

The Cortlandt Wave Code of Professionalism’s objective is to state the expectations for the people that are involved in the Cortlandt Wave Program in order to put an emphasis on learning the game of lacrosse and continuing to increase skill while having fun. This code describes appropriate actions and terms of condition for Coaches, Players, Family, and Friends of the Program.

 


Coaches

Practice

  • Coaches will be expected to attend every practice with energy and passion.
  • Coaches will be at least 10 minutes early to every practice.*
  • Coaches will be expected to spend time preparing practice plans before each practice session.

Tournament Games

  • Coaches will be expected to have a written game plan that will be prepared before each tournament.
  • Coaches will be expected to be at field sites 25 minutes before each game and have each team warming up for each game.*

Language

  • The egregious use of foul language will not be tolerated by the Cortlandt Wave Lacrosse Program. Excessive use of foul language will result in docked pay.

Alcohol and Substance Abuse Policy

  • Coaches are prohibited from the consumption of alcohol with parents/friends of the program who are of age in any capacity during tournament trips.
  • Coaches are prohibited from the consumption of alcohol in the plain sight of the players of the Cortlandt Wave Lacrosse Program.
  • Insubordinate behavior regarding any of these alcohol policies will result in a dock in pay.
  • Any instance of substance abuse during Cortlandt Wave events will result in immediate termination.

* instances regarding the ability to get from place to place on time will be communicated to TPM (Team Parent Mentor) and will be handled on a situational basis.

Parents

We ask that the parents of The Wave Lacrosse Program work cooperatively with the coaches and players to make a great experience for the players.


We request that you inform the coaching staff of absence from either a practice or tournament.

 

We request that during tournaments you sit and enjoy games from the sideline opposite the players unless you are a Team Parent Mentor.

 

We expect that all parents will also follow our code of conduct regarding the egregious use of foul language during practices and tournaments.

 

Please advocate the Code of Professionalism to your children.
