"BETTER PEOPLE MAKE BETTER PLAYERS."
BEING A GOOD PERSON IS AS IMPORTANT AS HOW WELL YOU PLAY VOLLEYBALL.
MAKE IT A PRIORITY TO BE THE BEST PERSON YOU CAN BE. DO NOT HIDE FROM RESPONSIBILITY OR WORK. BE AVAILABLE TO HELP WHENEVER CALLED UPON IN ANY CAPACITY.
DO NOT COME OUT FOR THE TEAM IF YOU ARE MORE COMMITTED TO PLAYING TIME OR PLAYING A SPECIFIC POSITION THAN YOU ARE FOR SACRIFICING AND GIVING YOUR ALL FOR YOUR TEAMMATES.
DO NOT COME OUT FOR THE TEAM IF YOU ARE A SELFISH PERSON. WE SACRIFICE AND GIVE TO ONE ANOTHER. FURTHER LOSS OF PLAYING TIME AND EVENTUAL DISMISSAL WILL BE THE PRICE FOR COMPLAINING ABOUT PLAYING TIME.
YES, BODY LANGUAGE AND GENERAL ATTITUDE COUNTS… ALL THE TIME.
OUR TEAM COMES FIRST. WE DO NOT CARE WHAT POSITION YOU PLAYED FOR A CLUB OR THINK YOU SHOULD PLAY. COACHES DETERMINE PLAYING TIME AND POSITIONS AND WE COACH THIS TEAM INDEPENDENTLY OF OTHER TEAMS.
NO DECISIONS REGARDING PLAYING TIME OR POSITIONS WILL BE INFLUENCED BY ANY OTHER TEAM THAT PTHS VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS ARE MEMBERS OF. THIS INCLUDES POTENTIAL FUTURE COLLEGE TEAMS AND CLUB TEAMS AS WELL AS OTHER SPORTS. PLAYERS WILL PLAY WHEN AND WHERE COACHES DECIDE.
NO SINGLE PLAYER HAS MORE VALUE THAN THE COLLECTIVE VALUE OF THE TEAM.
YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED PLAYING TIME IF YOU MAKE A TEAM. YOU MUST EARN IT BY YOUR ACTIONS ON AND OFF THE COURT.
NOT EVERYTHING YOU WILL LEARN AND PRACTICE WILL BE ABOUT VOLLEYBALL.
IF YOU CANNOT ABIDE BY THESE RULES, DO NOT TRY OUT FOR OUR TEAMS. PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE.
BETTER PEOPLE MAKE BETTER PLAYERS.
