Changing Room etiquette

Posted by Sam on February 05, 2019
Uncategorized / No Comments

Dear Coaching Parents and Students,

It has recently come to my attention that some students have been playing games and messing around in the changing rooms before and after training. I would like to take this moment to remind students of what is appropriate behavior and etiquette in the bathroom:

  • No running or horseplay is prohibited
    • No practical jokes
    • No swearing or use of inappropriate language
  • Each student is responsible for their own personal belongings
    • Students should not touch their peers belongings unless they ask to
    • Lockers are available in changing rooms, and students are encouraged to lock up their valuables
  • No Food or drinks should be in the changing room, please eat and drink outside
  • Do not stand on the benches
  • Any trash, please dispose of appropriately in the bin

These rules will be posted in all changing rooms to remind students. There will be punishment to students who break these rules depending on the severity. This could include changing in separate locations, suspension or being asked to leave the team. While this post will be shared with students to their school emails, we would encourage parents to discuss this with their child as well.

Fixtures and Air Quality

Posted by Sam on January 18, 2019
Uncategorized / No Comments

We are nearly finished with the first 2 weeks of the new Term and AISAA League games & friendlies will be consistently happening every week for the next month and half. We would like to send out a few reminders.

Fixtures – How do I know when games are on and who is selected? Change to G5-U Football Tournaments

Firstly you can find all of our Sport Coaching fixture on the Calendar page under “Fixture List” or by clicking here. Fixtures are subject to change, please double check the week before. We will send out generic SMSs on either Friday or Saturday to confirm games the week before (please see an example of a Home and Away SMS below). From these generic SMS you will be informed if we are “host” (home) or if we are “at” (away), the school we are playing, and the date of the game. Please note we will also share a link to the Coaching Team list which will have “Y” next to names of students who have been selected to play in that game. Please note that receiving the SMS does not mean your child has been selected, you must open the link and check.

Please note one major change to the Calendar is the G5-U Football Tournaments, these were originally schedule for 27th January but please note they will now be played on Tuesday 12th February with the Boys at Berkeley and the Girls playing here at KIS. Both tournaments are expected to start at 8:30am and finish by 11:30am. Student selection will be sent out the week before via SMS.

EXAMPLE SMS:

HOME GAME: Dear Parents, pls be informed the G10-U Boys (Basketball) will host Ekamai on Mon 1st Jan. Final team selection has been posted on the blog (https://bit.ly/2NyYJNT, password:kis2018coaching). If selected pls ensure your child brings the correct shoes, shin guards and KIS Basketball uniform. The game will start at 3pm and finish by 3:50pm, you’re welcome to come and support your child. Thanks, Coach Sam

AWAY GAME: Dear G3-U Girls Football Parents, pls be informed the Girls have a game on Mon 1st Jan at Ekamai. Final team selection has been posted on the blog (https://bit.ly/2PkHmBa, password:kis2018coaching). If selected pls ensure your child brings the correct shoes, shin guards and KIS Basketball uniform. We will depart at 12pm and return by 2:30pm. Thanks, Coach Sam

AQI – How do I know if the Air Quality is too bad to play?

Since the start of this week the Air Quality has not been particularly good, especially in the mornings. Please note we are constantly checking the Air Quality (through our own air monitor on campus and other public monitors) and will always follow our school policy on Air Quality. You can find a copy of the policy here (Air Quality Policy) but the two main point to take from this document are 1) Games will be canceled if the AQI is over 200 and 2) adjustments will be made to game length if AQI is over 150.

This week we have sent out some confirmation SMS to assure you that games are still on. Please note we will no longer send these and ONLY send out SMSs for cancellation due to bad Air Quality.

We hope you have all had a wonderful winter break! Please be reminded that the Sports Coaching Program will resume at the start of Term 2 (January 7th). Please note there have been a couple minor changes to the coaching schedule and you can see the full coaching schedule for both Primary and Secondary below (READ CAREFULLY). You can also see the location of each training session using the key. With the start of the new Term, we will have our new Sports Hall in full use and we have given preference to teams who are “On-Season”.

SWIM PARENTS – Firstly please note that if you have yet to do so, please complete the survey regarding which swim training option you would like (Click here). At this time our new Coaching Pool is not yet 100% ready and therefore for the time being all training sessions will remain in our current pool. As soon as our new pool is ready we will move our all training session (except for development) to it and will inform you via SMS.
