  • clarify ROLES between coaches and parents for optimal athlete benefit
  • establish TRUST with both parents and athletes alike

Customer Reviews

Ideally, coaches and parents should work together for the benefit of the athletes. Unfortunately, too often there are rifts in this relationship that create problems for all involved. This course is designed to create a coach and parent partnership that helps solidify team cohesion and ultimately helps the athletes flourish in all three dimensions.

Over the span of 23 modules, this course will guide you through the “Dynamic Model for Cultural Alignment.” Just as all four wheels on a car must be aligned for it to move forward with efficiency, coaches and parents must be aligned on all four “wheels” of this model: Purpose, Process, Roles, and Trust. Along the way, you will learn practical strategies to align each wheel.

Once alignment is obtained, everyone (players, coaches and parents) will benefit from a unified effort and the program will move forward in the right direction.

This course has been uplifting in that it supports much of what we are already doing as a soccer program while at the same time it has provided us sneak peeks into things we can do to be even better in supporting the lives of student-athletes.

This course provide a great framework that aligns well with the 3D training. A transformational coach will have all they need in terms of methods and strategies to help with obtaining alignment with parents. Most coaches don't leave coaching becasue of the players. They leave because of the parents.
