Communication Divide

The Parent-Coach Communication Divide

We have all experienced this divide.

Maybe it is the awkward moment of stress we feel when we try and talk to the coach about our child’s performance or even just chit-chat about the game.

Maybe it’s the frustration we feel when we don’t have ample communication from the coach about practice times, or tournament plans or goals for the season – but we don’t want to say anything for worry of being “that parent.”

Maybe it’s the pain we feel when our child is struggling but don’t feel the door is open to us for a discussion.

Either way, read more about how to take action today.
