    We have cubbies that everyone puts their phones on, and the gyms so loud you never hear them go off, but we can use our phones during water breaks and video tape with them.

    when we arrive at practice, we have to put our phone in a bucket. throughout practices we get 5 minute breaks to use it and do whatever we want. it's nice :)

    We're allowed to use our during water breaks, as long as everyone's back on the mat when the coach says to be.

    we are def not allowed to use them during breaks. In fact, a lot of the team would go to the farther water fountain in the school because it's colder and would take so long so my co-captains and I purchased water bottles for the team, now they don't leave the mats ever :)

    For me, I'd probably be like cheerKT in my cellphones during practice scheme..water breaks should really only be long enough to get water and catch your breath quick.

    Think of it this way- every minute you're on your phone during practice is another minute your competitor is getting better..suddenly phones during breaks aren't so important anymore. Or that it's another of your tuition dollars being used up on your phone when you could be getting your money's worth..

    On my softball team girls used to do that during batting practice. They'd stand in the outfield with their cell phones in their glove :confused:

    Nope, no phones in practice, EVER. If it's an emergency parents have my number. Pointless to be on your phone during practice.

    as a coach i always wanna throw their phones out of the window. unfortunaly i cant do that.
    when one goes off everyone is disturbed, or they get a text message from someone that said something mean and that phone owner is upset the entire practise.

    i allow them to use them during the break, but ive seen some sneaking out more and more to check their phones.
    they'll get a speech at the beginning of the year to refresh the rules, and the phones are definitly something on the agenda!

    No phone allowed at practice... period....all of the kids put their belongings in a cubbie when they arrive to practice and never really have time during practice to get their phones to be honest... They can use the rest room, get a drink but Ive never seen anyone have time to get out a phone and use it.....
