While Teton Valley Youth Lacrosse Association does not implement a strong attendance policy, please consider the following when making the decision to miss practices, games, or team events:
- Our coaches teach a team oriented philosophy. One cannot teach this philosophy without the team around.
- We believe team sports are one of the most effective means in teaching a young athlete commitment.
- Our coaches spend time designing a detailed practice and game plan every day based on the number of players on the team. It only takes a few absent players to make that plan obsolete.
- Absent players make it incredibly difficult to coach effectively.
We understand that we do not live in a perfect world and that absences are inevitable. However, please make every effort to attend all practices, games, and events.
If a player is to be absent, we do ask that you notify the head coach as soon as possible so appropriate or necessary changes can be made to their plans.
