Workshop Choices:

Parent Like a Champion Aug 29

By | Athletics | No Comments

The Diocese Recreation Association (DRA) has implemented Parent Like A Champion Today training for all of this year’s 4th , 5th, 6th and 7th grade sports parents which supports parents as the primary educators of their children, especially in their faith. This is accomplished by providing parents with a sports workshop which teaches them strategies to be champion sports parents in their attitude and behaviors and enables them to positively partner with their children’s coaches.

The diocese has established a “phasing in period” in an attempt to offer this class to all parents of diocesan sports. This year’s 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade parents (2017 -2018 academic year) will need to complete the training before their child can participate in DRA sports programs.

Key points:

* Only 1 parent per family needs to attend but both parents are welcome.

* This training only needs to be attended by parents once (not for each sport or each year).

* Head coaches who have completed Play Like a Champion do NOT need to also take Parent Like a Champion Today.
