Parents Letter

Dear Parents:

We are about to begin a new athletic season that we hope will be fun and rewarding to both you and your child. It is our hope that you will develop new friendships and have lasting positive memories about this season.

Of course, we want to help your child learn new skills, but we want to accomplish many more things that we will attempt to outline in this letter. In order to accomplish these goals, a cooperative effort will be necessary between the parent and the coach.

It is commonly believed that participation in sports teaches and fosters positive human values such as fair play, respect for others, cooperation, leadership, self-control, and much more. We want your child to emerge from this athletic experience possessing these kinds of human values. These values will be a high priority as we teach ball skills and strategies.

We can only succeed if we have good models for the players to emulate. A competitive sport such as football presents a situation that can become highly charged with emotion. To learn to control one’s behavior in emotionally charged situations is a mark of maturity.

In addition to teaching skills and strategies, we want to concentrate on the following:

  1. Respect for the opponents both on and off the field, and
  2. Play the game for fun and enjoyment and learn the skills.

Please praise your child’s efforts and demonstrate, through your own actions and remarks, sportsmanship and fair play. If we can achieve some of these goals, the players, parents and coaches will all be winners.
