CPMS MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETIC EXPECTATIONS
GENERAL
1. Welcome to CPMS Middle School
2.
We are all teachers first - take care of business- but remember you have athletic
responsibilities as well, eligibility, inventories, monitoring student athletes grades,
etc........... This means you may have to come to school earlier or stay later to
manage the various issues that are associated with coaching. (WE ALL GET THE
SAME STIPEND SO EVERYONE SHOULD SPLIT THE WORK)
*EQUIPMENT/UNIFORMS - LAYING AROUND AND NOT PUT UP IS ALL
COACHES RESPONSIBILITIES.
3. Communication is very important with parents and fellow coaches. Be able to back
what you say and do.
ATHLETES:
Treat the athlete with respect at all times. - WATCH HOW WE TALK IN LOCKER
ROOMS. Document behavior - Athletic Discipline Form - blue book
STUDENT BODY/FACULTY STAFF:
Sell your program - put announcements in.
Invite teachers to your games, please make announcements during the week, prior
to the game. This year I would like to have honorary coaches each week. We will
draw out their names. YOU need to get them a jersey the day of the game to wear
all day. I will try to do this ahead of time and give each sport a list so you will not
have to wait for me to tell you the week of your games.
COACHING STAFF:
I will use meetings occasionally to get you information. It is very difficult to find a
day and time that work for 12 coaches that also teach core classes. I will also use
email as well as Coach Duran to relay information to the boys coaching staff.
Communicate with each other – when you are going to be absent - call a fellow
coach or e-mail or text but always CC me please.
PARENTS: - advocates - not enemies
Parent involvement and communication is very important.
FRONT OFFICE/TEACHERS/ADMINISTRATION:
As coaches we need to communicate with the front office secretaries about:
* Practice times * practice cancellations *game schedules
*List of the young men and women on your teams
TEACHERS/ADMINISTRATION:
I will provide the staff of CPMS with a list of coaching staff and their responsibilities
so they will know who to direct questions and calls.
4.
Paperwork to be completed:
Bus Requests - Coach Salyer will do all bus requests
*Eligibility – Rank one – Any coach can help with.
*Physicals - Look at questions noted on the physical - if they answer yes to those
designated questions THEY MAY/MUST GO BACK TO THE DOCTOR TO GET
REEVALUATED IF THEY ARE INTO 8TH GRADE, (*Emergency Cards, *Athletic
Handbook, *Drug Consent, *Knowledge of UIL rules, *UIL Parent Information
Manual * Concussion sheet) – All 7 other forms are now 100% online. You can
check who has turned in what thru Rankone.
5.
Criteria and documentation must be used while selecting teams.
6.
Parent Meetings need to be held BEFORE season starts but after teams are
established.
7.
Practices need to be held everyday - of course things come up.
Saturdays - optional.
8.
You are ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALL EQUIPMENT THAT YOU
ISSUE!!! We MUST hold athletes and ourselves accountable for equipment. Fill out
debt notices as necessary - turn in form to Mrs. Reinhardt if student has not paid by
the end of the year. Everything should be numbered and that information
recorreded. No exceptions this year.
9.
All areas – gym, offices, locker rooms, equipment rooms, laundry
room and weight room should be kept neat and orderly AT ALL TIMES. TAKE
PRIDE OF HOW YOUR OFFICE LOOKS!! This may require you to come back down to
straighten up later. HELP CUSTODIAL STAFF AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. :) WE DO
NOT WANT EQUIPMENT/UNIFORMS LAYING AROUND. When boys athletics leaves
the gym the table should be clear of passes, notes, etc… and there should not be
clothes laying around the gym. Please respect our PE teachers’ classroom.
10. On game days our athletes that are eligible to participate in that days game may
wear game shirt to school if the coach wants them to.
11. Supply YOUR AREA in the athletic office with supplies - stapler,
tape, tape dispenser, pens, markers, etc. - See Pam for supplies. Please don’t take
from another coaches desk and not return it.
GAME INFORMATION
1. The coach of each sport is responsible for the setting up of activities in the gym or
outside. If you need clarification then ask the head coach or me. The gym should
be ready for our p.e. classes the next day. I have attached the protocol to set up
and leave the gym after a game. The p.e. table should be set up correctly. Do not
leave trash and other items please.
2.
Supervision and location of athletes prior to a contest must be very specific. Our
athletes must be supervised after school - NOT IN THE SCHOOL HALLWAYS! Work
together to make sure this happens. THEY MUST BE SUPERVISED!!!
3.
Programs are expected to be at EVERY GAME - HOME & AWAY GAMES! Each coach
is responsible for making their own teams programs.
4.
Announcements about the games need to be made the following day - whether we
WIN OR LOSE! Try to keep these BRIEF. FIND POSITIVE THINGS TO SAY - no
matter what!
5.
GAME highlight information also needs to be e-mailed to the
Killeen Daily Herald - [email protected]
6.
Game announcements also will need to be placed on athletic bulletin board. It is all
about recognizing the kids! This bulletin board can be used to announce future
tryouts and any other information you would like to share with the student body.
7.
Know the K.I.S.D. rules for your sport - look at blue book you need to know what they are and you need to carry a copy with you to your
games.
8.
Dress professionally for games. You are to act professionally and your athletes are
too display their best behavior at all times.
9.
Chaperoning of games is required - home and away games. Girls - During
volleyball the basketball coach keeps the volleyball book at the game - same is true
for girls during basketball season. Boys - during basketball season - other coach
goes to game. The bookkeeper does not have to ride the bus as long as they arrive
15-20 minutes before the game starts.
10. Track season requires all coaches work the track meet that we host if needed.
11. Chain of command - head coach of sport, CAC - me, then I call
Athletic office if I do not know. I do not want every coach contacting the district.
We have a CAC and a lead for a reason.
AWARDS, RECOGNITION, FUNDRAISERS, ATHLETIC BANQUET, FCA
1.
We will have Athletic Awards Ceremony at the end of the year and everyone is
expected to be in attendance. All coaches will help prepare for this, as it gets
closer. We have participation certificates and trophy awards that we will give out to
special athletes. (MIP – most improved, MVP – most valuable player, MVP Offense,
MVP defense, in track we do a Hustle and CAV Strong award also.)
2.
We will do a cookie dough fundraiser again this year. This is a LOT of work for 2
weeks but we make about $6000 - $10,000 so it is worth it. The boys must be
more involved this year.
3.
Our athletic charter allows us to have fundraisers (cookie dough, spirit t-shirts,
student vs. staff games, etc…) With this money we pay for the athletic ceremony
items, equipment not provided by KISD and other items that are approved. Neither
boys or girls will order anything without a signature from the CAC.
4.
FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes – Coach Marks and Coach Salyer help with
FCA and we would love to have some men coaches step up to help. If you are
interested let me know. We would like to have more athletes involved this year all
year and not just for the trips.

Have athletes put dirty uniform in the dirty clothes bucket so laundry can be done
the next day. Athletes should not be washing and drying their uniforms with the
exception of the track stuff
Empty water cooler and water bottles in the shower – leave lids open to dry out
and then put up the next day where they belong. Water cooler is stored on the
top shelf in the girls coaches bathroom. The 2 nice ones should not go outside.
OTHER REMINDERS:
Paperwork:
Log into Rank One after the game, either at the school or home and input the
scores. Write up a game announcement and send to the drama teacher that night
or before 12 the next day. Also send copy of email to [email protected]
Locker room concerns:
*Trash off the floor
*Books and belongings placed on the benches or table
*DO NOT LEAVE CLOTHES ON THE FLOOR
Phone usage:
*Arrangements should already be made to get home - phone may be used
but it should not become a habit – all athletes should be contacting parents
right after game is over before they get on the bus and if a home game, call
during the 4th quarter or game 2 or 3 in volleyball.
Chaperone / other Game
When you are the coach that keeps score or the clock, you just do not do that job only.
You also must chaperone the athletes WHO ARE NOT PLAYING. So you actually have
two jobs. You also need to assist with “setting up the gym” for our pe classes and
putting all the game items up.
If you are not using Remind 101 yet – sign up for it for your different sports teams. It
allows you to text all your parents with one text and they cannot reply or see your real
phone number.
