All Westfield Youth Events Canceled for Today
Please READ this ENTIRE EMAIL.
DROP OFFS/PICK UPS- Once again there is another reason to reiterate a point made twice already. There is to be no drop offs or pick up of participants within WYF at the curb at either the start of practice or the conclusion. This is regardless as to division of WYF, or the affiliation/ relationship to a coach or a Board Member. There is also ZERO parking along the curbing on the backside of the tree belt at the backside of the parking lot. Vehicles, at times, Emergency Vehicles, will need access to exiting our practice field, utilizing this curbing behind the tree belt, which they will not be able to due to transport injured individuals. Parking in this area hinders their ability to do so. This has been the standard/ rule which we enforce for reasons noted. Head Coaches per Division, as are Board Members, from this point forth ,who witness these pick ups and drop offs at anytime for the remainder of the 2015 season, will report the participants name to the Head per Division, and that participant will sit out the first half of that weeks game. Unfortunately the parents will have to explain this to their children, as to why they will miss half of their weekend game, simply because they, the parent, couldn't abide by a simple drop off/pick up procedure. Let's avoid having to enforce this, and simply follow the guidelines for the sake of the participants involved.
Field Entry and Exit- All participants and parents for our Tackle and Flag Divisions are to enter the gate at the end of the parking lot, following the dirt road to the designated practice fields. Cheer has access through the gate at the beginning of the parking lot where they practice. Entry and Exit are to be the same nightly. The Field Hockey Field for WHS will be cut and lined soon, and we are prohibited to be on that field, or enter and exit upon it. The Ding Dong Cart parking at that opening doesn't give us a green light to cut across the field. We need to enter and exit the same way nightly. We have regulations pertaining to our use of this practice area, which we will not lose due to a few people who cannot follow simple guidelines. We have one of the largest programs within Western Ma, and need an area to facilitate our nightly practices. With that being said, we will not waiver on our stance of following requirements and expectations set forth by Westfield High School Administration.
Parents with Children NOT PARTICIPATING in WYFC practices must be responsible for their children. On more than 3 occasions Staff have asked children not to play on the lineman shoots, They are not a jungle gym and we ask that parents not turn a blind eye to their kids. They are not made to be climbed on, lounged on, or hung on nor should they be they are at risk for injury, and we prefer that no one gets injured on such equipment.
For new families involved within WYF that understand and abide by the few expectations we present each year, thank you. The same being said for those returning and have been with us for many years. For the handful that choose not to abide by these few requests, now may be the time to start. The start of the season is just a few weeks away, and these kids, all of them, work way to hard nightly to receive a consequence in which they have no control over. Please abide by the Pick up/Drop Off and Entry /Exit Rules which we have. Thank you
DIBS The season is almost under way and parents need to fulfill their volunteer requirements go to the WYFC webpage and register for your dibs. http://www.westfieldyouthfootball.org/dib_sessions
