Communication Policy

  1. The Glenview Stars desire open and full communication among its players and parents and the organization. In order to facilitate this exchange of information throughout the season, the Stars will regularly communicate via email blasts, newsletters, team meetings and updates on the Stars website.

For specific communications related to your particular player or team, the Stars request that these questions, complaints, grievances and comments go through your coach (after observing the 24 hour rule), your age division Level Representative (listed below) and/or the Glenview Stars Hockey Director. Communications may be directed to just your coach, your Level Representative, the Hockey Director, or all three, depending upon your comfort level with those individuals and the nature of your communication.
