Coaches Report:
-3/21/18 – There will be a parent & player meeting for all grade levels 8-12th.  This meeting was scheduled to help get the kids on track to finish the year strong.
Concerns:

  • Grades
  • Players are not going to the weight room
  • Disconnect:  need to get parents & the community involved
  • No response to texts from coaches & even other players
Looking for ways to help the kids be successful.  Ideas:
  • Have Alumni come back & speak to players
  • Build relationships with players (connect).
  • Have a gathering once a moth outside of school; have fun together.  Suggested the booster club could host.
  • Break into small groups lead by a coach, to have discussions & to help the coaches get know the players better.
 
-Spring Ball will be the last week in May through the first week in June.  Looking to put on gear this year during spring practice.
-6/24 – 6/27 – NW Team Camp.  Waiting to hear back to confirm dates.  Coach is also considering attending a different camp this year to have more competition & the chance to play other teams.  Possible options:
  • Central WA camp – Good competitive teams attend this camp.  Cost range approximately:  $275-$300.00
  • UPS – Similar to Central, but not as high caliber teams attend
  • Evergreen – This camp is a little more expensive but usually has the best group of teams.  Approximate cost $375.00
  • NW Camp – our camp.  Cost last year was $250.00
-Youth camp:  Will be scheduled after June 6th
-8th Grade visits will be scheduled after 4/16/18
-Freshman Parent night – Date is still TBD
-There will be an alumni poker event Saturday 3/24.  Alumni are looking to schedule events quarterly.
-Planning on retiring a couple of jerseys to the KW Hall of Fame this year.  Inductions to the Hall of Fame will happen every two years.  (other sports included)
