Modified Coach: Deb Stoldt
The Three Levels of Competition
Modified – This level emphasizes team play as well as teaching and practicing the fundamentals of a given sport. The goal is for all participants to receive meaningful playing time. Playing time may not be equal for all participants. Each participant will compete in every contest unless a rule has been violated or the coach has a valid reason that the participant should not be a part of that contest. Winning is not the primary objective.
Junior Varsity – At this level an increased emphasis is placed on team play, physical conditioning and refining fundamental skills. Winning is emphasized, but is not the primary focus. Meaningful contest participation will exist over the course of the season, however, a specified amount of playing time is never guaranteed.
Varsity – Team play, sportsmanship, individual ability, physical conditioning, motivation, and attitude are all important aspects of competing at the varsity level. Winning is emphasized and not all players may play in every competition. It is vital that each team member understand their role on the team and know its importance.
