Parent communication with coaches
Please remember our coaches are all volunteers. A GBSA football coach is committing a minimum of 10-20 hours a week coaching your child. Many also spend several hours of
additional time per week on planning and practice prep. Our coaches deserve your respect even if you don’t agree with a particular decision they make.
- If you would like to discuss a problem with your coach please arrange a time before or after practice, away from the players.
- Parents are not to come onto the practice field during practice time unless there is an emergency.
- Please support your coach when speaking with your player, don’t undermine our coaches in the eyes of your player.
- If you do not get a satisfactory resolution to your problem after you have contacted your head coach you may contact our football commissioner and we will intervein and seek a solution. The
Commissioner’s decision is final so please respect that decision.
