Marcus ShawFlag Football Coach
Coach Marcus Shaw is entering his 2nd year as a member of the JGS staff as a Behavior Professional on the Support Team, as well as a co-teacher of Personal Development in High School. His athletic interests focus primarily on baseball, basketball, and weight training. Marcus spends his evenings either exercising and staying fit at a local Mountainside Fitness, or playing outfield on his slow-pitch softball team. This year he will be on the softball coaching staff, where his experience and knowledge from playing 2nd base for Glendale Community College will certainly come in handy. He’ll also be stepping in to assist with other sports such as basketball and football, as well as filling in when necessary for PE classes throughout the year.

JGS Athletics Code of Ethics:

We believe that a partnership among coaches, players, and parents provides the foundation for a successful athletic program and team experience.  We strongly urge parents to attend the coaches/athletes/parents meetings to ensure understanding of the expectations of our athletes.

To help ensure the best experience for your child, through the season a parent should:

Be enthusiastic and encouraging: Parents should support their children to do their best at whatever level they participate.

Let the coach be the coach: When on the sidelines, parents should resist the temptation to “coach”, recognizing that you may confuse or contradict our coaches’ sideline instruction.

Support our Coach: Regardless of a parent’s sports experience, one should not publicly criticize the coach or teammates.  It is crucial to the team’s spirit and success that players develop a respect for their coach.  Any questions about coaching style should be directed to the coach at an appropriate time (not during or after games).

Demonstrate good sportsmanship: Parents are expected to act as a role model at all times — toward opponents, coaches, teammates, officials, and other spectators.

Communicate with your coaches: It is inevitable that parents will have questions for coaches; parents should have an open line of communication with the coaching staff while encouraging the child to advocate for him/herself directly with the coach.
