For away games, parents need to pick up their child up at Tahanto when the bus arrives from the away site.
Players should have their personal sports bag at every practice and game. Each player should have at least 2 or 3 masks, enough water for their personal consumption during practice or a game and their own hand sanitizer which should be used before, after and during breaks in activity.

Players should dress appropriately…sneakers, t-shirt, shorts.
Each player will be assigned a reversible scrimmage vest that they should wear to practice daily.

Information regarding practices, game schedules, cancellations etc. can be found on the Tahanto athletic web site. Please check the site on a regular basis as changes are made frequently due to weather, cancellations, gym availability, etc. Each team has their own page on the web site where
If parents or players have a problem, concern, or question please contact the coach of the team. The coach’s contact information can be found on the Tahanto athletic web site. If there is a general question please contact the athletic director.
We strongly encourage players to talk to their coaches when they have questions or concerns.
We ask that you do not coach your son/daughter from the bleachers. Every parent wants to help their child succeed and it’s your parental instinct to want to do so at all times, even during the games. You should help your child succeed, but not during the game. Talk with them before the game, talk with them after the game, but during the game, that’s the coach’s job and the players’ opportunity to perform on their own. Remember the coach is the only one that is there at all practices and is coaching ALL of the players. We believe the parents’ roles are to be our biggest fans and offer positive encouragement to all members of the team. Parents play a vital role in supporting our athletes and in the team’s overall success. Exemplary sportsmanship will be expected from parents toward our players, coaches, officials, and our opponents. Please allow officials to officiate, coaches to coach, and players to take direction from their coaches.
