Discover How Parents Can Boost Team Chemistry
It's a fact proven season after season: The teams that are the most fun for kids are most often the ones where the parents interact well. They form their own team to support their children's team.
Sometimes the parents already know each other from another activity, such as school. But more likely it's because one parent puts in the extra effort to coordinate events that help parents break the ice, both getting to know each other and, happily, contribute to better player chemistry.
Some coaches fill the role of team organizer. But, their time is better spent preparing for practices and focusing on how players fit together on the ice. Teams mesh better when one parent steps forward and volunteers to be a Team Activities Coordinator who organizes tasks among the parents.
In this proactive environment, there are many tasks which can be done by parents that won't directly impact skills development but can change a team's dynamic for the positive and create great memories of the season. Some of those tasks the team coordinator can delegate:
- Arranging team meetings
- Coordinating team parties
- Helping with practices
- Helping with player management
- Helping with snacks
- Helping with water
- Taking pictures for a team scrapbook
- Taking video for a team film
- Contacting parents about schedule changes
- Helping with team events
- Helping with team trophies
- Helping with uniforms
- Raising funds
- Researching opponents
- Coordinating activities for parents during practices
- Keeping statistics
One of the life lessons which parents want their child to learn is the need to invest time in order to gain a benefit. Being involved with team activities is a great way for parents to be role models for their child.
