You Talkin’ to Me?

August 1st, 2008 · No Comments

Hey Eagles fans… Coach Gene drafted the note below regarding the upcoming season.  Check that… the note that Coach Gene plagiarized regarding the upcoming season.  There, that’s better.

All kidding aside, I was incredibly impressed with the support and cooperation of the parents last year.  Other than those incidents that I personally instigated, I can’t think of one incident that caused any issues last season.  I suspect this year will be no different.  I’m also sure that Coach Gene feels the same way too, but hey… it goes along with the job.  So, now that we’ve gotten all of the obligatory sarcasm out of the way, I give you Coach Gene…

Please realize we, the coaches, are volunteers, and by no means are we perfect.  We will make some mistakes, but do promise to do our best to teach your son the basic fundamentals of tackle football.  The number one goal of this coaching staff, is that each and every player on this team, regardless of record, will want to continue to play football next year, and that the skills learned and friendships made will continue throughout their young lives.

Please remember that there will be times that we, as coaches, will have to raise our voices to get our point across.  Football is an aggressive sport and there will be times that we will need to have the boys’ full attention and focus.  This will prevent the possibility of injuries and confusion on the football field.  Practices will be organized, fast-paced and highly spirited.
We as Coaches strongly recommend a parent is present at all practices & games, if your child is injured their Mom or Dad can typically comfort them better than a Coach. 
If you have any issues with me or any of the assistant coaches, please feel free to come to me and discuss the situation.  I want the communication lines to be open at all times.

Please let the coaching staff know if your son has any medical conditions we should be aware of.  Also, the following are some areas that we will need parent volunteers:

  • Water distribution during practices.
  • Field set up and take down.
  • Chain gang.
  • Weekly snacks. (Snack/Game schedule will be handed out).
  • Snack bar coverage.
  • Fundraising Ideas or Donations.

Thank you for your cooperation, and please let us know if you have any questions.

Coach Gene Erwin
