TEAM PARENT RESPONSIBILITIES


As a Team Parent you are the key link for communication between the league, the coaches and your parents. This website page should answer most of your questions in regards to your responsibilities as team parent. It is important that you use good communication skills, be detail oriented and have a positive attitude! Throughout the season, you will be the coach’s right hand, the “go-to” person for anything NOT pertaining to the football field so the coaches can focus on everything that is on the field. Ultimately the coach is the one responsible for the working of the team. Some coaches are happy to hand everything over to the Team Parent to handle, while others prefer to stay more involved. Timely communication is key! You want to make their job easier, not harder, so be sure to work together because you both want the same thing….to have the best season possible!

TEAM PARENTS - HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS

  1. Have a binder for tracking important documents, fundraisers, end of season party...etc
  2. Have a money bag for receipts and cash 
  3. Download a weather app on your phone to help coordinate warnings with your head coach
  4. Optional - have a clip board and extra pens!
  5. Optional - Have a Team bag - keep items that will help families sitting at the field (sun screen, extra toilet paper for the outhouses, hand sanitizer, trash bags, duct tape, athletic tape, etc.)  Coordinate with the Head Coach to see if they want you to have anything else.
  6. Plan your team party and gifts at the beginning of the season - don’t book anything, but it is nice to know how much money you are trying to fund-raise.  That way you can fund-raise, let parents vote to split the cost or do a little of both.

Please share other suggestions to add to this list.
