Five tips to help you to deal with the parents of your players which can be tricky but they can also be a great help to the team
Try to get as many parents involved as possible, whether that’s setting up goals on match day, collecting ‘subs,’ washing kit. This will build relationships and in return will this help with any potential difficult conversations (that may arise in the future.
Do your training debrief & match day team talks in front of parents, that way parents will know what you are asking of the girls (and what is expected), and they as parents can channel and show their support in the same way by encouraging from the sideline based on YOUR key points.
Encourage parents to focus on the process, asking question such as... ‘how did you play today?’ ‘What did you do well?’ Rather than the typical questions of ‘did you win & did you score. You want females to feel confident and empowered and a clear process and good questions will help with this.
Get to know the parents, ensure you are approachable, speak to them before and after training and games where possible. This will help develop relationships and gain an element of respect between all parties.
Create your own respect campaign and involve the parents and players, that way everyone would have bought into it, and everyone has something to be accountable for!
