Car Ride Rules
Before the Game
-Speak greatness into your child.
-Tell your child you are proud of him/her regardless of how well they play.
– Focus on their attitude and effort.
-Remind your child to play hard and enjoy the competition, that it is “ok” to be nervous, it is normal.
-Make a commitment to yourself to act appropriately no matter what others may do.
During the Game
-Understand your role, you are a fan… not the coach or an official.
-Let the coaches coach… Avoid giving your child or other players advice during the game.
-Pick the “right” seat or surroundings for growth.
-Cheer good plays and good efforts by both teams.
-Mention good calls by officials to others.
After the Game
-Stick around for post game with the team.
-Thank the officials for doing a difficult job.
-Thank the coaches for their effort.
-Let your child tell you about the game, avoid giving your post game analysis unless asked.
-Tell your child again that you are proud of them, especially if the game did not go well.
-Take them out for a treat- regardless of their performance… Ice cream or a Slurpee are always great!
