The [tag]baseball coaching staff[/tag] need to be sure that the parents of the players understand your [tag]expectations[/tag] for the season from the beginning.
Outline your expectations for the [tag]baseball[/tag] season, such as “I would like all players to arrive 30 minutes early for events to allow time to talk about strategy and to go through a sufficient warm-up. As soon as the game is over, we will meet as a team to discuss any issues we discovered and to recognize those players who did a superior job. As soon as the meeting is over, all players are free to go. I do ask that parents wait to speak to their children until the meeting is over. It will only take about 5 minutes, but it is one of the most important times for our team, because it shows us what we have done well and what we need to improve. I appreciate your understanding and your support this season!”
This will help you create a good relationship with parents. Their busy schedules will benefit from your preparedness and organization.
If anything changes in the schedule during the season, communicate it immediately with parents. If a game is cancelled due to inclement weather, show up at the game site anyway, in case parents did not receive the cancellation notice. They will appreciate that you took the time to inform them, especially since it means going out of your way to do so. Send home reminder notices of important events or tournaments to help everyone stay on top of things.
With these tips for better [tag]communication[/tag], your season will run smoothly, and more importantly, with the full support of your parents!
