We feel the parents play a vital role in the development of student athletes, therefore, we as coaches believe in the following:
- Be a positive role model through your own actions to make sure your child has the best athletic experience possible.
- Be a "team" fan, along with a "my kid" fan.
- Weigh what your children say; they will tend to slant the truth to their advantage.
- Show respect for the opposing players, coaches, spectators and support groups.
- Be respectful of all official's decisions.
- Don't instruct your children before or after a match, because it may conflict with the coach's plans and strategies.
- Praise student-athlete in their attempt to improve themselves as students, as athletes and as people.
- Gain an understanding and appreciation for the rules and the code for tennis .
- Recognize and show appreciation for an outstanding play by either player.
- Help your child learn that success is oriented in the developement of a skill, and should make a person feel good about themselves, win or lose.
- If you as a parent have a concern, take time to talk with coaches in an appropriate manner including proper time and place. Be sure to follow the designated chain of command.
Call, email or talk with Coach Gregg.
- Please reinforce our drug and alcohol free policies by refraining from the use of any controlled substances before and during athletic contests.
- Remember that a ticket to a school athletic event is a privilege to observe the contest.
This coach's Code of Ethics pledge was taken from the National High School Coaches' Association's web site. http://www.hscoaches.org/parents_ethics.php
