FED coaches and captains meeting

Does anyone actually have the coaches come out for the captains meeting? Some boards in Ontario are sticklers for it. We tried it briefly here. After a handful of refusals we just reverted back to our old procedure of meeting the captains at 12:00 or so and then greeting the coaches just before we ditch our jackets.

What say you ?

No. And I've never seen anyone else do it either.

We also do captains and coaches separate. We don't even do the coaches together.

Used To

Yes. Used to. Former partner and I made this a regular practice and we never had a problem with any coach refusing to come to a coaches and captains "Cum Ba Ya" meeting in front of the table. None. Zip. Zero. Nada. It was an option, we tried it, liked it, and it worked well . . .

. . . until . . .

We ran into a streak of three or four guys assigned as our third man who, without any evidence, just plain decided ahead of time without ever trying it that it wouldn't work...that coaches would refuse to cooperate and participate, that the idea was stupid, that (blah, blah, blah). Since the locker room pregame wasn't the place to waste time rationalizing the benefits of the situation, we just stopped doing it. The problem wasn't with the coaches or the players, but with stubborn officials who were too thick-headed to at least try something different.

One thing, among others, I liked is that "equal time" was assured with each coach because we met with them together. If one coach, as when we meet seperately, had a question we took time to answer, the other coach didn't have to stand over there staring and stewing and assuming his rival is sucking up to us the whole time. I liked that benefit.

Reverted back to the old way now, though I reserve the right to resume the fight for it whenever I want to. Because it's an option.

It is required to have the head coaches and captains at the same meeting in this state. If the head coaches do not come, they can be written up for not participating.

Peace

The Constitution State ...

Captains-Head Coaches-Officials pre-game meeting should occur prior to start of game. If the head coach
refuses to attend the meeting, notify Board Commissioner, who will notify the school athletic
director and CIAC.

Our area of Southern Cal (inland) does the coaches meeting at the table & meets with the captains at center court.The neighboring area (Foothill) does each coach separately (usually at their bench) and then the captains at center court.

Coaches/captains meeting at 5:00 is what we do around here. After about a 20 second meeting (sportsmanhip, tell coaches to let us know full or 30, get the ball to an official after a whistle), we shake hands and say "good luck".

Same here. The head coaches must attend. No assistants.

We meet coaches separately as we walk in from warmups at 2 min. Meet visitor head coach first then shake hands with all assistants. Then same with home coach. Not a lot of words. "Any questions? Good luck".
