Sharing Best Practice

Waikato Diocesan have put together a Process of Parental Communication with Coaches which is included in the information that goes out to all parents at the start of the season – the information is discussed with coaches and sent out via the sports office.

Process of Parental Communication with Coaches

What communication parents should expect from their coach

  1. The expectations the coach has for your daughter as well as the other players in the team
  2. Locations and times of al practises and games
  3. Team requirements

Appropriate concerns to discuss with coaches

  1. Situations involving your daughter
  2. Ways to help your daughter improve
  3. Your daughters attitude and work ethic
  4. Concerns about your daughters behaviours

Discussions that need to come through the Director of Sport Waikato

  1. Playing time of any student
  2. Team strategy, practise organisation or play calling
  3. Other students in the team
  • We also point out that it is always a good idea to get your daughter to speak to the coach about an issue before parents intervene as this helps students to grow into young adults and build a positive relationship with the coach

Team selections
The following points have worked well to minimise the number of complaints and also be able to deal with complaints in a more productive way:

  • Trial dates are set in Term 4 for the following year for main sports – we advertise trials via the website, extra-curricular guide, Facebook and emails to students and parents; there is no excuse for students or parents not to know when trials are being held
  • We use guest selectors as well as previous coaches and make sure all selectors take notes at trials about the students so that we can provide feedback later if necessary
  • We make sure that even if a parent is adamant that their child is in the wrong team, we stick by the selector’s decision. We use the selector’s feedback and even set up a meeting with the student selector to discuss what they need to improve on but we don’t change teams around because of parent’s complaints.
