Coaching Academy: Building Parent Relationships
After about 40 years of coaching baseball at all levels, all the baseball drills I used and all of the practice templates I have created, I have learned some valuable things about how to run a baseball team.
One of the most valuable pieces of advice I can give you is to build a healthy and proactive relationship with parents whose kids are on my team. Building parent relationships should be a top priority for you as you start your season. In fact, in our Coaching Roadmap we assist Members with building parent relationships with a step by step guide on how to do that. Below is a culmination of the best ways we have used in building parent relationships.
We made it very easy for you to figure out what to expect from your players and parents. Watch these videos on what to expect from your players, your parents and team commitment.
You should share these videos with your parents so they will be on the same page.
These videos will help you and your parents set a standard that will help you throughout the season. Use the video messages as a way to reiterate to your team throughout the season.
