Communicate in writing about potential conflicts/unexpected absences/illness as far in advance as possible. In addition, if a player is injured (depending on severity), Coach would like her to continue attending practices, as watching/listening is a great way to learn.


To ensure that communication is clear and accurate, we ask that parents adhere to our coach/parent communication policy. We ask that any conversations involving matters such as playing time, practice/match attendance, line-up, FHS rules, and the like, be discussed with BOTH Coach Claudia AND Coach Collins or Team Manager, Marié Nortjé present.

This policy will help to avoid any miscommunication and to ensure that the matter is addressed and resolved. This includes in-person conversations, text messages, emails, or phone calls.
