Field hockey coaches across the country are always asking me ‘How do I work with my athletes’ parents so that they support their child and my program and really understand what their role is?’
“Thanks so much! I finally learned how to get my parents on the same page that I’m on. They’re actually helping me now! Go Figure! It has made things so much much easier for me to do my job. I think this is a critically important book for coaches in any sport.” – Jack, Florida
- Are over-involved parents driving you to distraction?
- Are you spending far too much of your time trying to manage out of control parents?
- Do you really want to be successful as a coach?
- A humorous, yet practical look into why parents act the way they do and how you as a coach can actively train them to be more productive members of your team.
- Unchecked parental misbehavior can sabotage all your hard work and coaching expertise, distract your athletes from the task at hand, and drive you to an early retirement.
I just love your new book! Parents on my team were driving me nuts and making me really angry, getting in the way of me doing a decent job of coaching. This book has helped me get things in perspective and to recruit my parents to help me! I feel like I now have a much better understanding of where they’re coming from and how to effectively work with them. Thank you! Thank you! I won’t quit coaching after all! – John B, Colorado
