Sports Parent Certification

Take the stress out of dealing with your team's parents

Establish behavioural guidelines and parent accountability with a 20 minute certification that ensures parents understand the do's and don'ts of being a good sports parent 

Sports Parent Certification

The number one reason why kids play sports is to have fun. Sometimes, well-intentioned but uneducated parents can become a dark cloud over their athlete's sports experience, focusing on outcomes over development and enjoyment.

The Sports Parent Certification is a video-based course that provides team parents with important information about the standard of communication and behaviors expected of them throughout the season. The goal of this course is to efficiently and effectively educate your parents about these topics to ensure their athletes have a safe, enjoyable, and rewarding season.

Here's a sneak peek:

Course includes:

  • Sports Parenting Introduction
  • The Do's and Don'ts of Sports Parenting (5 min. video)
  • 7 Things You Gotta Know (7 min. video)
  • Comprehension Quiz

Research shows that 70% of kids stop playing organized sports by age 13

Why? One of the main reasons is because of the gap between the kid's desire to have fun and the parents' misguided belief that the main goal is to win, earn a scholarship and go pro.
