IF YOU HAVE A CONCERN TO DISCUSS WITH A COACH………
PLEASE FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE
THE NEXT STEP
What can a parent do if the meeting with the coach did not provide a satisfactory resolution?
PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT
Be sensible, reasonable and keep your priorities in order. There is a lot more at stake than a win or loss record.
PARENT AND COACH RELATIONSHIP
Both parenting and coaching are extremely difficult vocations. By establishing an understanding of each position, we are better able to accept the actions of the other and provide a greater benefit to children. As parents, when your child became involved in our program, you have the right to understand what expectations are placed on your child. This begins with clear communication from the coach of your child’s program.
COMMUNICATIONS YOU SHOULD EXPECT FROM YOUR CHILD’S COACH
COMMUNICATION COACHES EXPECT FROM ATHLETES AND PARENTS
As your child becomes involved in the program, he or she will experience some of the most rewarding moments of their lives. It is important to understand that there also may be times when things do not go the way you and your child wish. At these times discussion with the coach is encouraged. It is the first and most integral step to understanding resolution.
Appropriate Concerns To Discuss With Coaches
It is very difficult to accept your child not playing as much as you hope. Coaches are professionals. They make decisions based on what they believe to be the best for all student-athletes involved. As you can see, certain things can be and should be discussed with your child’s coach. Other things, such as those listed below, must be left to the discretion of the coach.
There are situations that may require a conference between the coach and the player, or coach and parent. These conferences are encouraged. It is important that all parties involved have a clear understanding of the other person’s position. When a conference is necessary, the following procedures should be used to help resolve any concerns.
If procedures are not followed the parent/guardian is subject to suspension from games.
