Never talk negative on the sidelines Report Abuse
Believe it or not, many times the children can hear you. Talking negative can make them feel bad about themselves, their team, or even leave them not wanting to play. Just don't do it.

Be proactive in addressing negative behavior Report Abuse
Let's face it, some parents can get out of hand. If you are uncomfortable discussing this with the parent, ask the coach or a league ref to broach the subject.

Never talk negative about your child's teammates or coaches Report Abuse
Even if there is a child on the team who is not as good as the rest, or you have a coach that is unqualified, never speak poorly of them. This will only breed negative thoughts in your child, and never has a good outcome.

Actually DO the fundraisers Report Abuse
Everyone seems to be bombarded with fundraisers these days. While this can be a daunting task, it really does help to purchase equipment, uniforms, pay for tournament fees, and even travel. Ask everyone you know. The worst they can say is no.

Organize getting the parents to pitch in for a coach appreciation gift at the end of the season Report Abuse
