Dolton Bears Rules
Players must keep up with their school work!
Poor grades in school and not completing homework will result in disciplinary action.

If you don't practice, you don't play!
All excused absences must be coordinated with the coaches.
If you don't make an effort to attend practice, coaches will not make an effort to play you.

What the coaches say goes!
Back talking, profanity, or any form of disrespect will result in disciplinary actions.

Respect other players!
Remember, your teammates are working with you.
Any unnecessary aggression or violence towards another player will result in disciplinary action.

Take care of your equipment!
Let the coaches know if your equipment needs repair.
Safety is our #1 concern.

Come to practice prepared to work and play hard!
Arrive on time for practices and games.
Practices are tuesday, thursday, and friday from 5pm to 7pm.
Every week practices will be different.
New skills are learned, problem areas are corrected, and new plays are learned.
Your child will be at a disadvantage by not making practice on time and regularly.

Home conditioning is important as well.
