In this video, Regis coach Frank Lavrisha shares a few thoughts on how to make things smoother when the roster includes one of your own.
For example, here's Rule No. 1: In the car ride home, don't initiate a conversation about the match or tournament that was just played. If your kid brings it up, fine. But if he or she doesn't want to talk about it, leave it alone. Nothing worse than parents or parent-coaches who subject their young athletes to a full debriefing before they've even shed their knee pads.
