Parent Concerns Verbal process Athlete to Coach of their sport Parent to Coach of their sport Head Coach of sport Written process begins Athletic Coordinator Assistant Principal Principal
Parent Expectations I will always keep in mind that it is a privilege for my child to participate in a sport rather than a right. I will always model good sportsmanship at competitions by the way I treat all athletes, coaches, officials and other fans. I will insist that my child always demonstrate good sportsmanship and treat other athletes, coaches and officials with respect..
Parent Expectations I will always teach my child how to win and lose with grace by the way I act in each of those situations I will always teach my child the importance of competing with integrity and will not help him or her cheat in any manner. I will always remember that while I am not an athlete, I am representing my childs team at competitions. I will always strive to work with my childs coach and not against him or her.
Parent Expectations If I have an issue with a coach, I will always approach him or her in an appropriate manner, and should I have the need to discuss a concern, then I will follow the process designated by the athletic department and school administration. I will always refrain from coaching my child immediately before, during and immediately after competitions because of the potential negative effect it may have on my childs performance. I will always remember that I have had my opportunity in athletics and this experience is about my child. I will have a basic understanding of the rules of my childs sport.
