Coaches/Parents
Coaches/Parents
Parenting and coaching are challenging tasks. Understanding each position will establish the foundation to better accept parent and coach actions to better serve our student athletes. Parents have the right to understand what expectations are placed on their child.  Coaches have a right to communicate those expectations and work without distractions to develop our young athletes. In addition, our coaches are expected to operate in accordance with the coaches handbook and conference bylaws.
Coach Communication Expecations to Parents
1. Coaches philosophy
2. Coaches expectations for all players.
3. Location and times of all practices and contests.
4. Team requirements, such as fees, special equipment, off-season conditioning, snacks.
5. Procedure used if your child gets injured during participation.
6. Discipline that results in the limitation or denial of your child's participation.
Parents Communication Expectations to Coaches
1. Concerns expressed directly to the coach.
2. Notification of any schedule conflicts well in advance.
3. Specific concern in regard to a coach's philosophy and/or expectations.
As students become more involved in activities, they will experience some of the most rewarding moments of their lives. It is also important to understand that there may be times when things do not go the way you or your child wishes. At these times, a discussion with the coach is encouraged.

Appropriate Concerns to Discuss with Coaches
1. The treatment of your child mentally and physically.
2. Ways to help your child improve.
3. Concerns about your child's behavior.
It is very difficult to accept your child's not playing as much as you may hope. Coaches are teachers in a sense. They make judgement decisions based on what they believe to be the best for all young athletes involved.
Issues Not Appropriate to Discuss with Coaches
1. Playing time.
2. Team strategy.
3. Play calling.
4. Other student athletes

There are situations that may require a conference between the coach and parent. These are to be encouraged. It is important that both parties involved have a clear understanding of the others position. When these conferences are necessary, the following procedure should be followed to help promote a resolution to the issue of concern.

Procedures to Conference with the Coach
1. Call the coach to set up an appointment.
2. If the coach can not be reached, call Athletic Director Mr. Goryl at 303-2300 extension 164.
3. Please do not attempt to confront a coach within 24 hours of a contest or practice. These can be emotional times for both the parent and the coach. Meetings of this nature usually do not promote resolution.

What can a Parent do if the meeting with the Coach did not provide a Satisfactory Resolution
1. Call and set up an appointment with our Athletic Director Mr. Goryl to discuss the situation.
2. At this meeting the appropriate next step can be determined.
We know that physical activity, team building, conflict resolution, and participation of young athletetes has a greater chance of success in life. We promote activity for students to develop and maintain healthy minds and bodies. We also strive to build resiliency in our young adults through peaceful and safe interactions; managing anger, resolving conflicts, and understand personal growth.
