Glassboro Parents - ALWAYS REMEMBER...
1. Children have more need of example than criticism.
2. Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than a victory.
3. Attempt to relieve the pressure of competition, not increase it by not ridiculing or yelling at your child for making a mistake or for losing a game
4. Children learn by example. Applaud wholeheartedly good plays by your team and by members of the opposing team.
5. Let the coach do his/her job.
6. Be kind to your child’s coach and to officials. The coach is a volunteer giving of personal time to provide a recreation for your child. The coach is providing a valuable community service, often without reward other than the personal satisfaction of having served the community.
