Get Involved & Pay Attention

Here are several tips for basketball parents.
As a parent, if you are not learning what the coach is teaching it can cause a conflict between you and the coach.
You may know exactly what you are doing but it may not be in the coach’s philosophy of the game. So watch how he/she does it, don't criticize the coach's work just follow what they are teaching. This will help you and your child have a happy basketball season.
If you are able to, volunteer to help your child's basketball team. You don't necessarily have to coach, but can get involved as the team parent, organize the snacks for the game, start a phone tree in case practice or games have been canceled.
Every coach or league official would gladly jump at the idea of a parent getting more involved in the league.
And finally HAVE FUN WITH YOUR KIDS.
