The Sideline Project is a coach-facilitated program developed to improve sideline behavior. It’s simple to implement and free.
The Sideline Project seeks to:
- Educate parents and coaches about the different types of sideline communication.
- Eliminate hostile communication from the sidelines.
- Support a healthy relationship between coaches and parents by opening the lines of communication and increasing the level of engagement.
- Help parents be aware of and eliminate distracting communication from the sidelines.
The Sideline Project general steps:
- Coach registers, watches Educational Video and takes Survey.
- Coach holds parent meeting to introduce the Sideline Project.
- Parents register, watch Educational Video and take Survey.
- Coach sends emails provided by the Sideline Project periodically through the season.
- Coach communicates prior to each game with a Pre-Game Huddle or Email.
- The Sideline Project communicates periodically through the season with parents and coaches via email.
- Parents and coaches take a Post-Project Survey.
