7.  I will absolutely refrain from any involvement with drugs, tobacco or alcohol.

Participation in ALL scheduled practices expected. Missed practices need to be communicated with coaches ahead of time. Ruthless player’s contract further defines these policies as MANDATORY.

During softball season (spring and summer), Ruthless Softball expects the players to be 100% dedicated to the practice schedule (practices, scrimmages, games, etc). During softball season, Ruthless Softball expects players to prioritize any Ruthless Softball activity including practice over any recreational team activity, which includes recreational softball, AAU basketall, etc.  In other words if a Ruthless Softball practice is scheduled and there is a recreational game, the Ruthless Softball player will attend Ruthless Softball practice.

Ruthless Softball fully supports middle and high school programs.  In this case, middle and high school games, practices or other school sponsored functions take priority over Ruthless Softball activities.  In all cases of anticipated conflict, you must notify your Manager as early as possible.
