Coaches frequently ask what they should include in their notifications to parents and players. Following is a sample email template and an information sheet template that coaches can modify and use as they want. When sending emails it is better to send multiple short emails than one long email.
Introductory E-Mail Suggestion: Send a reminder email before the first game with key reminders such as no coaching from the sidelines, no berating the referees, bring water, etc.
