Obtaining Alignment Between Coaches and Parents


Course Description

This course is designed to help coaches create a partnership with parents toward the end of helping athletes flourish in all 3Dimensions. This course is full of practical insights and strategies to:

  • help coaches align parents to a PURPOSE that transcends issues like playing time and scholarship opportunities
  • layout a PROCESS for building healthy relationships between coaches and parents
  • clarify ROLES between coaches and parents for optimal athlete benefit
  • establish TRUST with both parents and athletes alike


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.

If coaches would use this before they meet with any parents - perhaps when they are still an assistant, aspiring to be the head coach, they would build a cultural that student-athletes and their families would be excited to join, and enthusiastically believe that they were a part of the program and it's accomplishments.
