Guidelines for Parents of STA Team Members
Saint Thomas Academy has a web-based e-mail program that will allow a coach or parent to send an e-mail to parents of team members. The team captain’s parent who will handle the communications should contact the STA Communications Office at firstname.lastname@example.org after the team roster has been finalized. A mailing group will be set up and the parent will receive a username, password, and directions to use the program. Please do not let students have access to the program.
Saint Thomas Academy provides funds to our athletic/activity teams for most of the essential items (coach/moderator salaries, uniforms, equipment, etc.). Many teams and clubs like to have other events and items (such as dinners and team shirts) that have traditionally been arranged by you, the captains’ parents. Before each season you determine the fee you charge to each team member. This fee should be supported by a budget that has been reviewed with the team coach/moderator and the Director of Athletics and Activities (AD) and Assistant AD. The purpose of the review is to have open communication between parents, coaches/moderators, and the school, and to determine that the amount parents are asked to contribute is necessary, reasonable, and affordable.
