PARENTS CORNER

 

PARENTS,   YOU IMPACT YOUR CHILDREN'S LIVES LIKE NO OTHER PEOPLE... IN SPORTS AS IN EVERY OTHER ASPECT OF THEIR JOURNEY.  PARENTS, EVEN THOSE WHO COACH THEIR OWN KIDS, DO BEST BY THEIR CHILDREN WHEN FOCUSING ON SPORTS AS A DEVELOPMENTAL OPPORTUNITY, RATHER THAN A DO-OR-DIE, WIN-AT-ALL-COST PROPOSITION.  WE AT GLENARDEN ARE HERE TO ASSIST YOU WITH YOUR CHILD'S GROWTH.  THIS PROCESS REQUIRES YOUR COOPERATION AND COMMUNICATION.  YOU ARE THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROGRAM.


OUR COACHES ARE VOLUNTEERS AND UNDERGO EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS.  THEY PARTICIPATE IN YEARLY TRAINING CLINICS IN THEIR RESPECTIVE SPORT OR ACTIVITY IN ORDER TO BE CERTIFIED.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO US AS IT IS TO YOU THAT YOUR CHILD, NOT ONLY ENJOYS THEIR EXPERIENCE, BUT DEVELOPS MENTALLY, AND PHYSICALLY.  SAFE SPORTS REQUIRES YOUR CONTINUAL COOPERATION AND COMMITMENT.  COMMITTED TO BRINGING YOUR CHILD TO SCHEDULED PRACTICES AND COMPETITIONS FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END OF THEIR SEASONS.  COMMITTED TO COMMUNICATING UNSAFE PRACTICES AND INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS.  ASSISTING COACHES WITH TRANSPORTATION, OPERATIONS, AND / OR FUND RAISING.


YOU MAY FEEL YOU CAN DO A BETTER JOB THAN THE COACH, BUT IT ONLY HURTS THE PROCESS WHEN YOU INTERFERE OR INTERRUPT DURING PRACTICES OR COMPETITIONS.  WE WELCOME YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS AFTERWARDS.


IMPORTANT -

WE UNDERSTAND THE HEIGHTENED EMOTIONS EXPRESSED WHILE WATCHING YOUR CHILD COMPETE, BUT IT IS VITAL THAT YOU STAY OFF THE FIELD, COURT, OR MAT DURING PRACTICES AND COMPETITIONS.  ALSO REFRAIN FROM INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE AND BEHAVIOR WHILE IN THESE SETTINGS.  PLEASE CONSULT WITH THE COACH IMMEDIATELY IN CASE OF EMERGENCIES.  THANK YOU!


                                                 RESPECTFULLY,


                                                                    LEON MERRITT
