The following are guidelines for how our parents can contribute to a Coach-Parent Partnership that benefits all the
DSC youth athletes.
Recognize the Coaches’ Commitment. Your child’s coach has made a commitment that involves hours of preparation beyond the time spent at games. They are generously volunteering their time. Respect their commitment and imagine yourself in their place before approaching them to discuss any issues you may perceive.
Make Early, Positive Contact with the Coach. As soon as you are made aware who will coach your child, contact those coaches to introduce yourself and offer any assistance you may provide. Establishing a positive relationship with the coaches will help you proactively shape a positive environment for your child and will lay the foundation for a respectful and productive conversation with the coach should a conflict arise later.
Fill the Coach’s Emotional Tank. Too often, coaches hear only from parents who have complaints. Filling the coaches’ Emotional Tank with specific, truthful praise positively reinforces them to continue doing the things you see as benefitting the DSC youth athletes.
Do not put the Player in the Middle. You would not complain to your children about how poorly one of their schoolteachers are. Do not share your disapproval of a coach with your children. Doing so may force the child to take sides, and not necessarily your side! If your child has an issue with the coach and can maturely articulate it, encourage your child to approach the coach and at the very least learn some life lessons in self-advocacy with an authority figure. Otherwise, if you disapprove of how the coach handles a situation, seek a private meeting to discuss the matter – and remember the 24-hour rule.
Let Coaches Coach. It can confuse players to hear someone other than the coach yelling out instructions. Also, your instructions may counter the coaches’ strategy and tactics, undermining team performance.
Fill Your Child’s Emotional Tank. Sports can be stressful for player. The last thing they need is your critiquing their performance…on top of what the coach may deliver and what they are already telling themselves. Let your children know you love and support them regardless of their performance.
Contribute to a Positive Environment. Fill all the players’ Emotional Tanks when you see them doing something well. Honor the Game as a spectator, respecting the rules, opponents, officials, teammates, and self, and encourage others around you to do the same.
