Canceling a practice is up to you. If you feel the weather is not conducive to practicing, call your players and cancel.
Practices can be rescheduled only with the authorization of the director, who will check to be sure the field is available at the time you wish to use it.
The decision to cancel the games will be made by the director and field marshal: usually on Saturday morning. DON’T CALL US, If games are cancelled all coaches and parents will receive an automated telephone call, and you can click on a banner on the front page to listen to the automated message. Please wait to receive a phone call and ask your parents not to call HYR to ask if a game has been cancelled.

Yes. If games are cancelled you will receive an automated telephone call, and you can click on a banner on the front page to listen to the automated message.
Never assume that all games have been cancelled. When you receive your phone call you will be told whether just your game, or the whole days have been cancelled. Different fields have different conditions.
We consider the condition of the fields, including the likelihood that they will be damaged if games are played, the weather forecast, and the time of year. Because the fields are bermuda grass, any damage done to them in the fall will remain until the following summer when the bermuda growing season starts.
It’s not an exact science, and we don’t always call it right. We try to do everything possible so that games do not have to be cancelled.
There are no scheduled make-up games. If however, the two coaches in question want to schedule an informal make up scrimmage during one of their practice times that’s fine.
PLEASE, NEVER ADD A PLAYER TO YOUR TEAM, OR TELL A PLAYER YOU HAVE ROOM ON YOUR ROSTER FOR THEM TO JOIN YOUR TEAM. Only the director can make changes to the rosters. If you have someone drop from your team, contact the director to let her know you have an opening.
Only accept an addition if the director tells you have an addition. A parent will never be told to call the coach to tell them their child has been added to your team.
Often there is a waiting list, and late registrations are placed on teams in the order they are received. It is unfair to the parents and players that go through the proper process, to just let a player join a team.
In addition, no player can play unless a signed release form has been turned into the HCM office.
Not necessarily. Sometimes players have conflicts for the first few weeks of practice. It’s best to call if a player has missed two weeks in a row, to be sure they still intend to play.
If they have dropped off, let the director know so a medal won’t be ordered and a replacement player can be found.
No refunds will be given after the second Saturday of the season, unless a player has to quit as the result of an injury.
There is one Port-o-Can located behind Atherton High School, on the Newburg Road side of the building.
There is no water at the field. Tell your parents/players they need to bring a water bottle to games and practices.
This shouldn’t happen. If it does, please find an alternative location for your team and call the director immediately. The director will contact the principal to address the situation. Please do not call the day of your practice to tell what happened last week. It’s too late at that point for anything to be fixed. Remember, we are guests on Atherton’s campus.
NO pets are allowed at HYR games. We love dogs too, but this is a safety issue.
NO. There is no smoking at HYR games. In addition, Jefferson County Public School prohibits smoking on school property.
Pictures will be taken by a volunteer at the time listed on your schedule. You will take your team to the picture area after your game. Please help the photographer position your team for the picture and be sure they are holding a sign that has both the correct division and team name.
You will pick up your pictures with your medals before your last game at Atherton in the basement/garage area, located behind the school on the side with the tennis courts.
Please make arrangement with your parents if they are going to miss the last game.
