Parents are a vital component to any wrestling program, and as such, can heavily impact a program either positively or negatively. I actively use Email and will respond to questions or concerns immediately either via Email or phone. While I do encourage you to volunteer, I do not allow parents to watch practice sessions. Thank you for your support of Boulder wrestling.
What to do:
- Help your athlete eat nutritious meals and discourage junk food.
- Maintain a curfew and insure sufficient sleep.
- Talk to your child about his/her grades and school.
- Attend the dual meets and tournaments!
- Positively support his/her efforts in school and athletics
- Cheer during matches
- Encourage additional conditioning year around. (Camps)
What not to do:
- Talk to your wrestler while he, or she is on the bench during dual meets.
- Interfere with the preparation of your wrestler before a match.
- Openly criticize, wrestlers, coaches or officials.
- This is not Olympic competition. Officials will make some blatantly bad calls that may cost your wrestler the match. The coaches will handle it in a judicious way at the proper time and respectfully request that parents model the kinds of behaviors we expect from our kids.
- Shout moves or coach during a match.
- Wash the event team warm-up top, or bottom. (Washing the singlet is okay if care directions are followed)
- Unless it‘s imperative, ask to take your child home early from a tournament before the agreed upon dismissal time(s).
- Team “Mom” or “Dad”
- Video Taping/Editing
- Apparel Coordinator
- Tournament or Food Coordinator
- Fund Raising Coordinator
- Statistician (Trackwrestling.com)
Talk to the coaching staff if you have any concerns anytime.
