Player Evaluations and Player/Parent Meetings
We will build VYS Player/Parent Meetings into the Travel program to provide valuable feedback and support for all players. These meetings will take place instead of a practice and players will be provided with information in a Player Evaluation. This is a support system not a grading system and will be directly linked to future Try Out structures House and our new Development program.
Due to our new staffing structure and a calendar which consists of 16 weeks there will no longer be a need / culture of make up sessions. The schedule is clearly mapped out and in the event that a practice is cancelled due to weather practice just continues as normal at the next scheduled practice.
The allocation of all practice sessions and fields has been a holistic one based on all the programs we will deliver moving forward and the fields we have been allocated by the county. The schedule is also heavily related to the philosophy we want to implement in practices and the constant structures we want to have in place. Any result in a change in training day / time is due to this new club approach.
