Communicating with Parents

Gordon MacLelland (Working With Parents in Sport) shares with Chris Chapman his experience of working with parents of athletes, focusing on the value of regular communication.

How do you communicate with the parents of your players? What information will you be wanting to get across? Are you being consistent with when you’re getting in touch? Are you sharing too much, or too frequently? What methods are you using to communicate? Have you built in time for face-to-face discussions? All these questions can help develop a strategy for you how can best communicate with parents.
