What is Phoenix Sports participant behavior policy?
Yes. Each and every member of Phoenix Sports is background checked via LiveScan through the FBI federal database as well as the California State database.
While participant behavior is not usually an issue at Phoenix Sports programs, we have a simple protocol in place to manage behavior challenges with participants.
The first step when a participant is experiencing behavioral issues is to have a one on one discussion with the child to better understand the situation and figure out the best strategy to help the child. If the negative behavior continues, we have the child take a short timeout where they control the duration. When the child is ready to return, they may rejoin the camp activities.
If there is a second behavior incident on the same day, the child may be placed in a second timeout. If applicable, the coach may sit with the child and discuss the child’s actions, determine the cause and what a better solution could have been.
If behavior challenges continue, the parent will be contacted by the on-site director to seek additional support. In extremely rare cases, a child may be removed from camp for the day and/or removed from future programs during the week.
If the parents or guardians have questions about Phoenix Sports behavior policy. Please contact Phoenix Sports directly at Gophoenixsports@gmail.com
How does Phoenix Sports manage bullying when it occurs at programs?
Phoenix Sports takes the emotional well-being of all participants very seriously. Bullying in any of these forms, racism, physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual bullying, emotional intimidation or cyberbullying is NOT tolerated at Phoenix Sports programs.
In the event an incident of bullying occurs between a group of participants, the parents of the children involved will be informed immediately or at pick-up time, depending on the severity of the incident. If the behavior continues with one or more participants, coaches will consult with local Phoenix Sports management on considering expulsion from the program or next steps in line with Phoenix Sports participant behavior policy.

What is the player to coach ratio?
Phoenix Sports believes that a smaller group setting is the best for the young athlete to learn and grow. Therefore, we have 1 trained coach for every 7 young athletes. A single sports session will not exceed 12 young athletes.

Does my child benefit from multiple visits?
Yes. Your young athlete would benefit from multiple sports sessions. On each return trip to camp, our participants work on mastering the lessons from previous sessions. "Practice, practice, practice" is the famous saying. We ensure that each athlete learns to grow and learn new skills as well as develop new social life skills.
Is the camp for boys and girls?
Yes. We believe that girls and boys who at or near the same skill level should play together. On the "programs" section of the website. Each session will state whether the camp session is for boys/girls or only boys and only girls.
Will my child's program be cancelled or relocated?
