Communication Roles

ROLE OF COACHES

They must be leaders and good communicators.  They lead by acting professionally at all times, being good teachers, making fair rules and decisions, staying organized and setting a good example through their actions.  As communicators they must exhibit good listening skills, be available to the players and parents, clearly outline rules and expectations, and be in touch with all administrative guidelines.  Coaches must also protect the safety of all athletes and work to reduce all risks associated with the game.  Finally, coaches alone decide on playing time and strategy.

 

ROLE OF PARENTS

They are to be a support system for the players, coaches and athletic program.  This entails respecting the rules and decisions made by those in charge, staying positive about every aspect of the team and all of its players, and keeping any negative thoughts to themselves.  Parents must respect the decisions of the officials, and respect other fans, coaches, and players.  Parents must follow the proper contact procedures with concerns and questions.  Parents must be supportive.

 

ROLE OF ATHLETES

They must be responsible members of the team.  This includes having a positive attitude about themselves, teammates, and coaches.  Athletes must follow school and team rules.  Athletes must communicate with the coaches, ask questions, notify about scheduling problems and special concerns.  Athletes must work hard, challenge themselves, and meet all classroom expectations remembering they are STUDENT/ATHLETES.

 

If each segment of a co-curricular activity understands their role and works on the lines of communication, they will find they are working together, not against each other in providing a positive experience for our student/athletes
