Parent and Coach
Parent and Coach Communication Plan
At Brooklyn Basketball Academy (BBA) It is very important that there is a good line of communication between coaches and parents. Therefore, our coaches will understand their roles in helping to provide a great experience for the athlete
as for parents. This begins with clear communication from BBA coaching staff.
Communication You Should Expect from BBA Coaching Staff:
1. Expectations the coach has for your child as well as the entire team.
2. Locations and times of all practices, events, and games.
3. Team requirements (practices, equipment needed, policies, etc.).
Communication Coaches Expect from BBA Parents:
1. Notification of any schedule conflicts in advance.
2. Notification if athlete is going to miss practices excused or unexcused.
3. Concerns expressed directly to the coach. As your child becomes involved with our basketball program, they will experience some very educational and rewarding times.
There may also be some times when things do not go the way BBA Coaching Staff plan, during these times discussion with BBA coach are encouraged.
Appropriate Concerns for Coaching Staff Discuss with BBA Director and Parents:
1. Concerns about your child’s behavior.
2. Ways to help child to improve.
3. The treatment of your child mentally and physically. It can be very difficult for a plyer to accept if she or he isn’t playing as much as you may hope.
BBA will make decisions based on what we feel is best for the team and program. It is important for our coaching staff to understand that there are certain items we do not discuss with parents.
Concerns Not Appropriate to Discuss with Parents:
1. Playing time
2. Team strategy
3. Game strategy
4. Play calling
5. Other student-athletes
There are situations that may require a conference between BBA coaching staff, parents, and student athlete. When these conferences are necessary, the following procedures should be followed to help promote a resolution to the issue
If You Have a Concern to Discuss with BBA Coaching Staff:
1. Set up an appointment by contacting the BBA parent.
2. Never confront a parent before or after a game or practice. These can be emotional times for all involved and this nature of contact does not promote resolutions.
Our BBA Family consists of the Coaching Staff, the Players, and the Parents. This plan is provided in order to make the experience the best it can be for the Brooklyn Basketball Academy, Basketball Family.
