As your Head Coach for the Apple Valley High School Trap Shooting Club, I promise to do my best to coach the athletes in this fun but competitive high school sport, from the recreational to the competitive levels. I will keep my athletes’ and team’s best interests uppermost in my mind no matter the level of performance. I will give each athlete and the coaching staff the attention and treatment they earn and deserve, according to my judgment, by being fair and honest.
The Apple Valley High School Trap Shooting Club is a membership organization where membership is a privilege. I will, undoubtedly, make some decisions that you may not agree with, but I ask that you respect my leadership position and accept them. I will hold my athletes and coaching staff accountable for their actions.
The operating principles of the team are to create an environment where recreational and competition team formats are provided under the umbrella of one organization. All team members will align themselves to either the recreational or competition team format, and the coaching staff will be divided accordingly to provide knowledgeable staff at both levels. The recreational format is intended for beginning athletes and those who choose not to participate in a competitive environment, where safety, fun, learning, and participation are the intended model. The competitive format is intended for experienced athletes who choose, or are coach-selected, to compete in a safe, fun, performance-driven environment, in which the spirit of competition is the intended model.
