The Importance of Collaboration Between Coaches and Parents

By Positive Coaching Alliance, 11/30/19, 3:15PM CST


To successfully navigate the college recruiting process, athletes will lean on their coaches and parents for support and guidance.

Coaches play a critical role in helping their athletes develop athletic and leadership skills. Not only do coaches help their athletes improve and become better players, they help them athletes grow as people and overcome adversity. 

Parents are also incredibly important in the development of their kids both on and off the field or court. Whether it’s helping organize or coach teams, driving to and from practices and games, or helping with homework and studying, parents play a significant role in the lives of athletes.

Together, coaches and parents can make a significant impact on helping their athletes to find opportunities at the next level and it’s important that there is a healthy relationship between all 3-parties.
