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

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.

I approached this course from two viewpoints. The first was as a parent. This course helped me better understand and see some of the underlying situations that our coaches deal with. The second viewpoint is that as a staff member with FCA. This course is helpful to me as I communicate with coaches, athletes, AD's, principals and parents. This is a resource that I will definitely be sharing with those in my circle of influence.

Didn't agree with some of the philosophy(normal when your old) but really enjoyed taking the coarse. I think it would be great for new coaches. I really liked the 4 wheels view.

As a coach, one of the toughest situations I have encountered is dealing with an unhappy parent. This course gives you strategies to be proactive when dealing with parents. This course will help you grow as a coach and feel prepared with difficult situations encountered off of the field.

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.
