CANDIDATES are to be welcomed and introduced appropriately. 1. Sponsor Discretion. When a potential candidate for joining a team is identified, this should first be mentioned privately (in person/private message) to the Coach/Captain. This provides the Coach/Captain an opportunity to advise whether there is a potential vacancy. (The candidate should not be added to the team thread or discussed on the team thread prematurely). 2. Coach/Captain Invitation. The candidate may then be invited to a game. This provides the opportunity for the candidate and the team to meet and observe each other. The candidate may be gradually invited to further games, trainings, participate in warm-ups, time-outs etc, until the time is right to bring the member onto the team proper. This may follow rapidly, or in following season as suited to the needs of the team. Some key questions to ask, include: * Do you know what RAVSTASS is? * Why would you like to join the team? * Have you completed the 'Join' steps to become a RAVSTASS Social Member? 3. Team Manager Assists the candidate to become ready at the appropriate time with the following items: * Join RAVSTASS as a Social Member. * RAVSTASS Uniform (note potential long lead time). * Club clearance (from previous club, if any). * Team Registration. * Team Fees. * Team Facebook message thread. These steps may require liaison with the RAVSTASS Treasuer to confirm actions completed. Note that competitions often impose fines and forfeits where clearance and registration details are not met. 4. Coach/Captain/Manager & Teammates collectively reinforce to the new Player the Duties of all Players. This provides a fair platform for setting of expectations and makes difficult conversations easier. 5. Sponsor. Should there be a shortfall identified, then the sponsor who introduced the player as a candidate shall take the responsibility in the first instance to educate/prompt/improve in accordance with our Values.
