T. H. Bell Girl's Softball Disclosure Statement

          Congratulations to your daughter for making the Bell Softball team. The purpose of this letter is to educate the parent and team member of the requirements and sacrifices needed to represent your school in an extra-curricular team sport.  Most of all, it is my intention to convey to parents and team member the theme that junior high athletics is a training ground for development of physical skills, team concept, and character.  School and education should always be more important than any extra-curricular activity.  It is a privilege to participate in a team sport and represent your school. 

            Each team member will honor the rules and regulations outlined in their student handbook, the WSD and THB code of conduct forms, including the District Hazing Policy. Any violation or action that would disgrace the school, team, or team member could result in a disciplinary action or dismissal from the team. 

            Practices will be on school days only, from 3:05 to 5:05 pm.  Players should be ready for parent pick up after practice around 5:30 pm.  A schedule of the games and their times is listed on the back.  If a player is unable to attend a practice or game, they are required to inform Coach Wilson as soon as possible before the date of absence.  You can call him at the school (801-452-4600), cell or text

(801-682-3452), or e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..   

            There are financial obligations associated with playing school athletics.  There is a required district participation fee of $65.00 (unless you qualify for a fee waiver).  Bats, catcher's gear, balls, and uniforms are provided.  The girls will need to supply their own cleats, gloves, sliding pads, etc.   In addition, the girls are required to purchase game socks (unless on a fee waiver).  The socks can be purchased from the school at a cost of $5.00.  Optional items that are not required for purchase are a Bell visor, the cost is $11.00, Bell clinic shirt (sizes small and medium) at $14.00, Bell aluminum water bottles for a cost of $5.00 ( optional items are not fee waivable). All fees are to be paid for at the front office.  Bring your receipt to coach Wilson to claim your socks, water bottle or visor.  A player cannot participate in a game until all fees are paid.  If you qualify for a financial fee waiver (participation fee and socks only), make arrangements through our office and they will inform the coach. We are asking each player to participate in a fundraiser by selling Papa Murphy’s Pizza discount cards to help pay for team expenses.  

 Each team member is issued a team uniform and will be responsible for the cleaning and care of the uniform.  The only time the uniform is to be worn is during a game.  The player will be financially responsible for the loss of or damage to the uniform.  Please follow the washing directions on the label of the uniform.

            Student athletes must also sign and return various forms, including: proof of insurance coverage, a current physical examination (within the last year), emergency medical information, WSD code of conduct, THB athletic contract, head injury form, and the verification of this Softball disclosure before they are allowed to play in a game. These forms are completed online.  You can access these forms by going to the school website and click on the Activities tab, scroll to Sports and then click on Softball tab.

 A physical examination can be obtained from your personal doctor or from J.A.G. Exam Services at the school beginning at 2:45 on Tuesday, August 27 at a cost of $10.00. Please make this payment at the time of the examination to JAG Services, not T. H. Bell. 

            During games and practices, players are to remain with their team.  At no time is a player allowed to leave the dugout to sit with parents or friends.  Parents and friends are not allowed in team dugouts, team discussions, or on the playing field.  If you have questions or want to discuss a topic, it must be done before or after a game or practice. Students must ride the school bus to and from games.  They must have principal permission if they are not riding the bus. Coach’s decisions are made with the best interests of the team and players in mind.  Your help and cooperation is greatly appreciated.  We are hoping for a great year full of personal growth, success, and fun. 

                                                Thanks for your support,

      Bus Policy:  When a player rides a bus to a game, they are required to ride the bus back to the school.  If you want to take your daughter home after an away game, write a note and have it approved by Mr. Ward the morning before the game.  Have the player give the note to Coach Wilson.  Thanks
