YOU CAN SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH WITH US ON-LINE DIRECTLY; OR PLEASE FORWARD TO OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR - email@example.com.
Coaches that sign-up to take the Community Initiation (6u and 8u); Community Development (Novice and Peewee) and fail to attend the clinic, will be removed from the role as coach in that given year and Hornets will invoice the Coach for the coaching clinic fee.
Coaches that sign up to take the Competitive Intro (14U and 16U) and fail to attend the clinic, will be removed from the role as coach in that given year and Hornets will invoice the Coach for the coaching course fee. Should a coach attend the clinic, but fail to submit the workbook prior to March 1 of the following year and is required to take the course again, the Coach will be invoiced the clinic fee.
RULE OF TWO:
This means that the coach is never alone or out of sign with a child.
Two NCCP trained or certified coaches should always be present with an athlete, especially a minor athlete, when in a potentially vulnerable situation such as in a locker room or meeting room. All one-on-one interactions between a coach and an athlete must take place within earshot and in view of the second coach except for medical emergencies.
One of the coaches must also be of the same gender as the athlete.
Should there be a circumstance where a second screened and NCCP trained or certified coach is not available, a screened volunteer, parent or adult can be recruited.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ASK THAT ALL VOLUNTEERS (COACHES, MANAGERS, TRAINERS, BOARD MEMBER ETC.) REVIEW THIS SO THEY ARE AWARE OF THE RULE OF TWO.
