Participation in athletics should be an enjoyable experience for all parties involved be they student, coach, or parent. There is no doubt that participation tends to be emotionally charged and dealing constructively with these emotions can be an excellent learning experience. In most cases, athletic competition is extremely positive and complements the educational experience enjoyed by students at WHS. Occasionally, conflicts between coaches and students arise. These conflicts must be addressed and resolved immediately so that the many benefits of athletic involvement may continue to contribute to the emotional and physical growth of WHS student-athletes.
If at any time a student-athlete or parent desires to lodge a complaint or discuss an alleged conflict, the following protocol should be observed:
1. Contact the immediate coach involved through the Athletic Office. For example, Freshmen team players would contact the Freshmen coach.
