The Role of Parents in Sports

As a parent of a student who participates in athletics, you make a huge difference in the quality of your child’s sport experience, as well as what is being taught and learned by our youth. The National Federation of State High School Association (NFHS) has provided information and resources to help educate you on the importance of proper behavior by parents in school sports.

Research indicates that a student involved in sport activities has a greater chance for success during adulthood. Many of the character traits required to be a successful participant are exactly those that will promote a successful life after high school.

We hope the information provided in these guidelines makes both your child’s and your experience with the athletic program less stressful and more enjoyable
