Message from Coach Kimball

Posted by Joshua Kimball at Oct 10, 2017 3:58AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Good morning. Thank you all for your continued support of our program and your athletes. As we continue to compete at the highest levels of high school softball, I think it is important to remember that win or lose we will be representing our school and community in every game. As a coach, I want our team’s performance and our athlete’s sportsmanship to speak for itself. Please review the Cobb County expectations for parents and sportsmanship.

I spoke with the team about keeping out composure no matter what the situation. I do not think that an umpire, good or bad, should affect our team and our performance. I preach adjust and overcome. Please help me in fostering the same attitude, as I believe it will give our girls the best opportunity to develop as players and people.

Parents and Sportsmanship
When your son/daughter enlisted in one of our interscholastic athletic activity programs, he/she has
committed to certain responsibilities and obligations. Likewise, we feel you have committed
yourselves to certain responsibilities and obligations. We would encourage you to join your school’s
Booster Club(s) to help provide the financial and volunteer support essential to your school’s
interscholastic athletic activities program, and we would like to take this opportunity to acquaint
you with expectations of parental involvement and sportsmanship.
Parent/guardian expectations:
1. Stress the values derived from playing the game fairly.
2. Show courtesy and respect to visiting teams, visiting parents/fans, and officials.
3. Respect the integrity and judgment of game officials and accept their decisions without
showing inappropriate emotions.
4. Do not confront coaches at the game – arrange another time to speak to them or the
Athletic Director.
5. Do not use profane language or gestures.
6. Help your child set realistic goals. The primary value of athletics is the opportunity for self development
allowing them to develop life-long values and self-esteem.
7. Remember an athletic contest is only a game – not a matter of life or death for a player,
coach, school official, fan, community, state or nation.
8. Parents and supporters understand that inappropriate behavior may result in criminal
trespass charges which would prevent them from coming back on campus to watch their
child’s activities.
Let the players play
Let the coaches coach
Let the officials officiate
Let the fans cheer positively!
