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.

Love the way that the process is broken down and the symbolism used. Definitely has helped me to be able to make sure everything is aligned and allows me to recheck myself when things aren't.

This was by far the most helpful and meaningful "coaches clinic" I have ever attended. There are lots of them to take over the course of a 27 year coaching career. I have taken MANY notes and will use them in my program. Thank you for putting this together.

As always, the 3D Institute perfectly captures the intent of educational-based activities. Building a positive, collaborative culture begins with a strong philosophy, and this course can be an effective tool for providing positive relationships between two groups that are, at times, at odds with each other.
