Top 10 Pieces of Advice for Baseball Parents
If you are the parent of a young baseball player, it’s easy to let the hectic nature of a season get in the way of the big picture. Below are the top 10 tips for parents to follow for each ballgame:
- Celebrate your child’s effort and sportsmanship, above results such as winning and losing.
- Do not coach from the stands.
- Never yell at the ump.
- Never yell at the other team or their coaches.
- Stay away from the dugouts during the game.
- The umpire is human and will make mistakes.
- Cheer positively.
- Root for the whole team, not just your son or daughter.
- HAVE FUN!
- Your child’s success or lack of success in sports does not indicate what kind of parent you are. But having an athlete that is coachable, respectful, a great teammate, mentally tough, resilient and tries their best IS a direct reflection of your parenting.
