MEDICAL RELEASE FORM WITH NOTARY
The following guidelines must be read and adhered to by all players,
parents, and coaches who are affiliated with Team Airell's Court Club
Volleyball (ACCV) Club. Any questions regarding these guidelines may be
directed to Terri Thomas Club Manager.
Playing time in tournaments is NOT guaranteed to athletes. Athletes are
paying for instruction, not playing time. Areas that will affect an
athlete's playing time are as follows: attitude, skill, practice
attendance, position, and status of payment. If a player has not paid
their fees with in the ten (10) day grace period, that player will be
suspended until the payment is in the hands of the director. The final
decision on playing time is the coach's and will not be questioned.
Practice attendance is very important for athletes to get the maximum
benefit of the program, however it is not required. All school
activities come first for all Airell's Court Club Volleyball. Coaches
will not question this at any time! Although, continuing to miss
practices will hurt the athlete. One, she will miss out on the
repetitions necessary to improve her skills. Practices are where skills
are learned and polished. Two, it is not fair to the athlete that
attends all practices to sit out, while an athlete not attending
practices gets to play. ACCV is very flexible for all Regional teams
when it comes to missing practices. However, for National level teams,
the athlete was given a choice to make the time and commitment.
Practices are as mandatory as possible. Missing practices will result in
loss of playing time, loss of skill development, and eventually
dismissal from the team if persistent absenteeism develops.
Since there is no written attendance policy, the final decision for
playing time and penalties are that of the coach. The decisions will not
be questioned. If at any time the athlete's parent verbally attacks the
coach, the athlete will be immediately dismissed from the club by a club
director and will receive no refund.
Grievances shall be handled in the following manner. If an athlete has a
problem with playing time, playing position, etc., the athlete shall
talk to her coach about it first. Most of the time, this approach
alleviates the situation without the parents or club director getting
involved. It is highly recommended that the communication lines remain
open between the athlete and coach.
If there is still a problem after the athlete talks to her coach, the
parents may schedule a time to meet with the coach to discuss the
situation. Finally, if the parents feel there is still no resolution to
the problem, they may schedule a time to meet with the club director.
ACCV wants to make this an enjoyable experience for the athletes and
parents, so it is encouraged to discuss concerns in a respectable manner
whenever the need arises.
All athletes are required to participate in Fund Raisers and Community
The use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco products is strictly prohibited
for athletes of ACCV. If an athlete is caught using one of these
substances at a ACCV function, the athlete will be immediately dismissed
from the club.
