B&B Jr-Sr High School A Standard Higher than Victory… Developing Champions Of Character

To develop, implement, and maintain character-based programs creating an environment in which every B&B student-athlete, coach, official, and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition. ‘Champions Of Character’ Three key compents that are involved in this process - Athletes - Parents - Coaches.

3 Champions of Character B&B Jr-Sr High

The primary role of high school athletics is to build lifetime character traits in the young people who are in our care. We must never lose sight of the big picture – that our athletic programs are primarily for the benefit of the students who participate in them.

Students do better academically Self-Esteem Self-Confidence Social Cooperation Leadership Skills More Physically Fit Learn to Work Hard Fosters Success in Later Life Activities support the academic mission of schools. They are an extension of a good educational program.

6 VIRTUES INSTILLED Confidence Teachable Spirit Pride Discipline
The athlete displays quiet, inner confidence based on preparedness. Teachable Spirit They are coachable. Pride Desire to become as good as possible for yourself and the team. Discipline Focused attention and effort. Positive Competitive Perseverance Mental Toughness, not deterred by bumps in the road. Accountability Responsible and demonstrates it by taking personal accountability and action for whatever happens to him/her. Team First Putting the needs of the team ahead of himself/herself.

7 MOM-DAD, Stay Close But Release Your Child
Release them to the sport Release them to the coach “One of the best “gifts” parents can give their children is to release them. But, be prepared to catch them if they fall!” Parents should always stay close to situation and get to know their child’s coach, the younger the more they need to be aware of who is coaching their child. Once parents are not overly concerned for their child’s safety, release them to the coach and the team. During the season, parents must share their child, this is essential for their growth and development. How many area’s in your child’s life can you do that.

8 “A kind word often goes a long ways!”
Concerns that are appropriate for a parent to discuss with their child’s coach: 1. Mental and physical treatment of your child 2. Ways to help your child improve 3. Concerns about your child’s behavior “A kind word often goes a long ways!”

9 Inappropriate areas of concern that parents should NOT discuss with their child’s coach:
Playing time Team strategy Other team members “The best way to change a situation is through hard work and consistent effort!”

10 MOM-DAD, During The Game
Learn to watch the sport your child has chosen. Model appropriate, sportsmanlike behavior. Focus on the team and the team’s goals. One instructional voice—coaches. Four roles—choose only one! {Spectator, Competitor, Official, Coach} Everything on this list is choices we can make - I assure if you do these things your kids will love having you at their games.

11 When adults behave like children--children don’t learn to become adults.

12 MOM-DAD, After the Game Give your child time and space.
Let them come to you--be a reflective listener. Keep corrections and criticisms in check. Always address unacceptable behavior. What kids want after the games is time and space - leave them alone. They need time to recover. This is good advice for coaches, keep the post game comments short and positive. Kids are telling us the least favorable part of their athletic experience - the most common answer is in the car after the game with dad. Our children are in greater need of our praise when they try and fail then when they try and succeed. What is it that goes on - they don’t want to re-hash the game - they don’t want to relive it - they don’t want to talk about every missed free throw - they don’t want to talk about team strategy they don’t want to talk about teammates - they need time and space. We all want our kids to have healthy relationships - especially with their coach and teammates - but yet a comment like why does Sally get all the shots can be interpreted Sally is a ball hog - or why do we always run the ball on 1st down can unintentionally undermine a coaches authority.

One comment from a parent that can always be sincerely said and received by a young athlete… “I LOVE WATCHING YOU PLAY!”

14 BE CAREFUL! We must NOT allow our kids to feel their value as a person is tied to their playing time, their performance, or winning/losing a contest. Almost without exception, it is unlikely that parents have any intentions of giving that impression. But comments like - my parents always seem happier when we win - my parents are always more quiet when we lose or when I don’t play very much - when we lose my dad always tells me everything I did wrong. In reality these are just perceptions from kids of the words from well-meaning adults who may very well be trying to support or connect with their child, but wasn’t sure how to do it.

15 If your children are comfortable with you - win or lose -
they are on their way to maximum achievement and enjoyment! If young people are making good decisions about drugs, friends, and academics, then extra curricular activities are just dessert!
