2020 Red Raider Baseball Player/ Parent Outline

 

Welcome to another season of grass stains and the familiar sounds of the ballpark! I am excited to have you and your athlete as a part of our program; consider yourself part of the BHS baseball family. Thank you for making the commitment to the BHS baseball program as it is a full TEAM effort. Below are some basic guidelines that will help you and your athlete during practices, games, etc. Remember to work hard and to HAVE FUN. With these things in mind I can guarantee we will have mulch success this season!

 

-Coach Curfman

 

Team Requirements

 

1.Communicate: Communication is key. If you are a part of this team we expect you to be around. If you are running late, have a valid excuse for an absence, or an emergency comes up we ask you to contact a coach ASAP so we can account for your absence. Email or a phone call to the coaches are ways for players to communicate this season.

 

2.Punctuality: Punctuality speaks volume about your commitment to the team. If there is a scheduled practice or game we expect you to be there. This program will have an “Early is on time”mentality. Players need to be 10 minutes early to the start of a practice or game time warm-up. Please give yourself enough time to be ready for practice and games; do not show up right as an event is starting.

 

  1. Games/ Practices: All practices and Varsity Home games will be at Joe Martin Field unless otherwise specified. Players are responsible for getting to practice on time. We will have an alternating practice schedule at Joe Martin Field. Please see the practice/ game schedule doc. 

 

There will be an activity bus leaving BHS each day at 3:25pm to Civic stadium each day. On game days we will travel as a team. If you plan to leave with an alternate ride please communicate to a coach and provide a signed note by a parent/ guardian.

a.Effort/ Attitude: Two simple things you as an athlete can control is your effort and attitude. By having excellent effort and attitude you will see much success this season.

b.Playing time: Playing baseball is a privilege. Many factors such as grades, effort & attitude, and skill level will determine how much an athletes plays on the field. Playing time will not be dictated by seniority, but by the factors listed above. The athlete who puts the team in a position for the most success will play.

 

  1. Attire: Baseball is a fun sport which requires a lot of gear! Please provide yourself with practice pants and shirt, cleats, and personal equipment (I.e. glove). Items that will be provided by the school are: hats, uniforms, and team equipment.

a.Cleats: Please choose a cleat that is comfortable to your foot. Cleats MUST BE black, white, red, or a combination of these colors to match team uniforms. MOLDED CLEATS are required this season as most turf fields will not allow spikes. Spikes may be worn on our field and ballparks with natural playing surfaces.

b.Shorts/ Athletic shoes: Players need to bring shorts and athletic shoes to each practice. We will spend time running, lifting and doing other fun activities that will be more beneficial in this attire than baseball pants and cleats. IF we practice indoors, shorts or sweatpants may be worn in replacement of baseball pants.

c.Colors: Our official school colors are RED & WHITE. Please come to practice and games in school colors to represent BHS well. Clothing with other team logos or colors will not be permitted to be worn in practices or games.

 

  1. Rest/ Wellness: Baseball season has many games during the regular season. Please make sure to get enough rest, hydrate, and fuel your bodies appropriately before and after practices/ games. If you have dietary questions please ask the coaches or our schools athletic trainer.

 

6.Grades: Athletes will be responsible for their own grades. YOU MUST have passing grades in ALL classes to be academically eligible. Grade checks will occur each week to hold athletes available. If you need time for tutoring/extra help please communicate to the coaches so can create an academic success plan.  

 

7.Parent/ Guardian Involvement: Parents play a key role on our team as they are responsible for the overall well-being of our athletes. With this in mind, we want parents/ guardians to enjoy their athlete play the game of baseball.

a.Parent Involvement: Parents are always invited to watch practices or games As a coaching staff we ask that parents please stay out of the team dugout and off the field during games & practices. There are plenty of great seats around a ballpark and we encourage you to find one! In the case of an emergency with your athlete the coaching staff will notify you.

b.Player Interaction: We ask that all spectators remain positive, encouraging and become our #1 fans. Please limit contact with your athlete to before or after team events. If you have questions for a coach please contact them AFTER the practice or game.

 

8.Ask questions: There is a lot that goes on around the baseball field. Never hesitate to ask questions if you need help, clarification, or assistance. We want to set you up for success because you are important to us!
