In the case of a parent's child at any sport, it is a smart condition. You want to encourage parents to participate in their sports or their daughter. Of course, parents are worried about being a child's welfare and wanting what's best for their child, but when parents have a tomb of coaches & # 39; power, it tends to be a problem in most cases. I have witnessed the first hand, parents in the post yell at their child and give them instructions, but the coach is guiding the player to do another task. This can cause your child to be confused, embarrassing or angry. This can cause confusion of what to do on the pitch leads to mistakes because he or she was thinking instead of playing and having fun.
Here is a list of methods that you can use to treat parents:
• Put a parent meeting before the start of the first exercise. If you have assistant coaches, they will also be available. Be ready; Think what you are talking about. Make playing cards with notes and follow this information with your assistants.
• The meeting begins with a presentation of yourself and your assistants. You want to talk a little about yourself. This is a good way parents can get to know you something. They may be able to contact something you said. The most important thing to remember is to be self and to be honest.
1. The first thing you want to talk about is your job.
2. Training Certificate – How many years have you been a coach and was skilled.
3. What are your interests around training? – Spend time with family, hiking, go to themes, etc.
4. Why do you have training? – A passion for the game, helping the children reach them and teach the children basically and play the right way.
5. You also want to talk about rules that you have for the team. Talk about what will be expected by players and parents. Here's a great opportunity to explain your parent behavior. This may be an opportunity to let them know that they do not shout at their child during the game. Tremor with officials and opposition is not accepted. Encourage parents to be positive, promise their child for a good game and encourage them when making mistakes.
6. Philosophy and priorities – Focus on fairness for each player, as appropriate.
Focus on teaching the basics? What are your goals for this coming season? Are you a coaching coach? Give the idea of what's important to you and what you want to teach players.
7. Encourage Parents to Make Practices – Let parents see how you manage your team, show them how you interact with players, how you criticize and make decisions that have to be played time. Most importantly, they start buying into your philosophy. They get to know why you make certain decisions in court.
8. Get Parent – Ask Parent If You Want A Volunteer. You can never get too much help; Maybe you need an assistant or coach? Ask if someone would have to be a group parent, score goalkeeper, etc. This is a great way for parents to find that they are contributing to the team.
9. Let parents ask questions – This can be a short Q & A in 5 to 10 minutes. Let one assistant take a note of the requested questions. In this way, if you run out of time or you do not have information to answer the question, you can get them back later.
10. Give out handouts – Medical certificate, rules and execution. Provide information so that they can reach you if they have any questions. This may have your name, phone number, cell number and email address.
• At the end of the meeting – Thank parents to attend. Encourage them to discuss any questions or concerns they might have with you. Keep the communication openings open. Most importantly, listen to them, let them know that you hear them.
