Interesting in becoming a Team Parent, but need more information?
Here are the three key responsibilities of a Team Parent:
- Creating a roster.
- Communication is key!
(1) The roster lists everyone on the team and has the child’s name, jersey number, parent names and address, contact information (for carpooling). Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Parent/Manager are generally listed at the top with players following in alpabetical order.
Player Jack LastName (jersey #11)
Parents: John & Jane
Address: 123 Main Street
Home Num: 703-111-1111
Cell Num: 703-222-2222 (Jack)
Cell Num: 703-333-3333 (Jane)
You can email this to the parents or hand it out at the first game.
(2) Communicate to families if there are any changes to practices/games. Collect information from coach/assistant coach and disseminate out to famlies. Become the point of contact for families to go to if they have a question about practices/games, team, VYS news.
(3) Snack Schedule. VYS does not encourage snacks for U9-older because of the potential damage to the turf fields. If your team is interested in providing snack for the players after a game, please remind parents to provide it off the fields and to deposit trash in the proper receptacles.
Now, pat yourself on the back for a wonderful job and realize the team couldn't have made it through the season without you!! The coaches, players and parents thank you for your time and efforts!
