4. Inappropriate comments or disrespect and/or hostile behaviour rendered by any parent toward a swimmer, coach, team member, or official may result in that parent being asked to leave SLP Global.

 

Parent / Teacher / Coach Communication Policy

 

Parent/Teacher/Coach Relationship:

Both parenting and coaching are extremely difficult vocations. By establishing an understanding of each position, we are better able to accept the actions of the other and provide greater benefit to pupils. As parents, when your child becomes involved in our program, you have a right to understand what expectations are placed on your child. This begins with clear communication from the coach of your child. Communications you should expect from your child’s coach:

 

1. Philosophy and goals of the coach.

2. Expectations the coach has for your child as well as the swimmers on the team.

3. Location and times of all practices and competitions.

4. Team requirements, i.e., fees, special equipment , off season conditioning, fundraising.

5. Procedures should your child be injured during training or competition.

6. Discipline that results in the denial of your child’s participation.

 

Communications coaches expect from parents:

1. Concerns expressed directly to the coach. If your child has concern, please encourage them to try communicating with their coach before you intervene.

2. Notification of any schedule conflicts well in advance.

3. Specific concern in regard to a coach’s philosophy and/or expectations.

 

Communication process for addressing swimmers concerns at SLP Global:

SLP Global believes that communication plays a very important part in the overall success of each individual swimmer. There are appropriate times and means of communication. Sending an email or text message is acceptable but not an effective means of communication. The following process should be followed to address any concerns:

 

First Step: The athlete must speak to the coaches to address any concerns or questions that they may have.

Second Step: The athlete and parents set an appointment to meet with the coaches to address any concerns or questions that they may have.

Third Step: The athlete and parents set an appointment to meet with the coaches and the company Directors to address any concerns and questions.

Our main goal is to resolve the concerns or questions as soon as possible. However, these steps should be followed in the process.
