Remember that most coaches are striving to do the best they can. You can help make the coach's job a bit easier, as well as help your child enjoy Little League more, by doing the following things:
- 1. Let your child know you support his or her participation in Little League. Get involved: volunteer your time in the league, practice with your athlete, attend games, and show that you care.
- 2. Provide your child with proper equipment and encourage its correct use.
- 3. Monitor your child's participation so that you know how your child is developing.
- 4. Do not interfere with the coach unless the coach has clearly erred.
- 5. Keep the coach informed if your child is injured or ill.
- 6. Make certain your child is sleeping and eating properly.
- 7. Help the coach when asked to do so. You might be needed to raise funds, drive kids to games, keep score, or even be an assistant coach.
- 8. Keep control of yourself! Show by your example how you want your child to behave on and off the field.
