What does a Team Parent do anyway?
The general role of a Team Parent is to serve as a support point for the coach/es, athletes, and parents on your child's team. Your assistance in handling communication between the Athletic Boosters and parents is crucial. It is a kindness to also offer support in other ways, as defined by the coach. Please begin by asking the coach how you can support him/her, so their efforts and energies can be maximized in the capacity of team and skill development with the athletes, while maintaining the overall governance of the team.
1. General support - ASK YOUR COACH
All coaches have different areas of need depending on their own strengths and capacities to pour into their team while maintaining work and family beyond. Please offer to assist in any ways you are able and they need.
2. Booster Liaison
As a Team Parent, you serve as the conduit of information from the Athletic Booster Club to the coach, athletes, and their parents. There is one Booster meeting each month (on a Monday evening), and you are expected to attend that meeting, along with a second representative from your team. Please collect parent email and create a distribution list for your team at the beginning of each season.
3. Fund Raising Contact or point person. If you are unable to be the coordinator for such, please find another parent who is able, or better yet, link arms with a few parents on the team and make it a group effort. Boosters will just count on you to be in the loop of fund raising efforts for your team in some way. See the 'Fund Raising' page for more ideas and information on fund raising to support your team and the athletic program at HHS as a whole.
