2022-2023 AVA Athletics
Sports teams practice every day right after school unless you hear otherwise from the coach (email your coach to make sure you are on his/her email list). Pick up times will be around 5:15 but may vary from team to team –coaches will communicate pick up times/expectations.
Parents do not have access to the building after 4:00 PM –the Front Office is closed. If you arrive before student-athletes are dismissed from practice, you will need to wait outside, or you may go around back to the field (for soccer or x-country). Please DO NOT ring the Intercom buzzer. Please contact the respective coach directly with any questions.
Student athletes must complete the Athletic Packet to participate in a sport.
The Wolves’ Athletic Program is committed to:
- Focus on improving skills –there is always a ‘next level’
- Keep players active and engaged
- Cultivate a life-long love for the game
- Maximize character & leadership-building opportunities
As part of AVA’s commitment to valuing parent involvement, parents are expected to support coaches and partner with one another to arrange carpool transportation to away games. Supporting your student’s athletic team is a great way to get volunteer hours!
- I will follow the RESPECT model toward officials, parents, players, other teams, and members of the community.
- I will help with transporting my student-athlete to/from games.
- I will respect the coach’s role in the guidance of my student-athlete.
- I will support the coach’s game time decisions, and encourage my student-athlete to speak privately with the coach on playing time issues.
- I will positively cheer for all members of both teams, understanding that all student-athletes are at different levels.
- I will be on time for practices/games, and timely in picking up my student-athlete.
- I will praise my student-athlete, and choose to focus on what they did right.
