Bolles Sharks Parent Meeting
September 3, 2009 at 6pm (Thursday)
The Bolles School Sharks coaching staff is hosting a meeting for all parents on Thursday, September 3rd at 6pm. (Lynch Theatre) This meeting is for any parent who has a child on our club team, no matter in which group that child swims.
The coaches highly encourage all of you who can make it to attend the meeting. Anyone who is new to the club should absolutely attend this meeting. During the meeting the coaching staff will provide an overview of the club plus provide “parent education” designed to help you best support your child as he/she endeavors to positively progress through the sport. We will also go over how you can support the team through volunteer efforts at swim meets, from timing to working in concessions to donating items for coaches’, officials’, and volunteers’ hospitality. We will detail the best way for you to handle any potential issues you may have going forward, and the means the coaching staff will use to get those issues resolved.
This meeting will also be your best opportunity to address any questions or concerns you may have about anything to do with the club. We encourage you to write down any questions you have and bring them with you. We cannot help you if we do not know what concerns you have, so please utilize this opportunity.
This is also a wonderful chance for new families to meet many of our returning families. Our team is very large and is, in many ways, one giant family. It takes many people to make it work. All of you are a part of this rare, wonderful, and inherently imperfect system, but through all of our cooperative efforts we can each endeavor to do the one thing that is most important to each of us: Provide a safe, encouraging, and instructive atmosphere in which your child can feel free to grow, dream, and improve.
