Parent Involvement

Parents play an important role in the success of Travel and Tournament Basketball. Families are asked to commit some time and effort. Before making that commitment, parents must decide whether they are truly able to do so:

  • A Parent Orientation will take place before each Season's tryout to go over exactly what Parent, Coaches and Players can expect during each Season.
  • Travel of up to an hour, to and from games, is sometimes necessary.
  • Although games are scheduled to be played on weekends, the exact time and place is sometimes determined very close to the game day.
  • Games can take up to one and one half hours.
  • Parents are asked to be supportive of their children and their Coaches. Part of being supportive is trusting that your coaches are making decisions that are best for the team (children) and leaving coaching decisions up to them. (Please see "Coaching" tab)
  • Parents are encouraged to practice with children on their own time, using your coaches' suggestions to work on improving individual skills. Interaction with players during games and practices is discouraged, so that players can give 100 percent of their attention to their coaches and their teammates.
  • Only positive cheers and words of encouragement are appropriate during games. There can be no tolerance of criticism or arguments with Referees or Coaches.
  • Travel and Tournament basketball games, whether won or lost, can get very tense, which can be both fun and exciting. We ask that everyone appreciate(and teach) the value of the experience to our Players/Children regardless of the outcome.
