    COACHING             PARENTING
                    Partnership
   Very much like teacher / parent / child relationship.
   Depends on mutual respect, trust and role clarity.
   Child centred approach. The child decides on their
    sport and to what extent it occupies their childhood.
   Coach constantly judges and monitors potential and
    decides appropriate training.
   Parents ensure balance in a child’s life and the
    formation of multiple identities.

                      Potential
   Potential is dynamic – ever changing
   Coaches are the judges and monitors of potential.
   Some factors which affect potential: spatial
    awareness; coachability (being receptive to
    coaching); work ethic; parental support
    (allowing/facilitating their children to do gymnastics);
    other potentials (to form teams)
               Communication
   Committee / Officers / Coaches will issue
    notices via club website and notice board. This
    may be supported by emails and letters from
    time to time.
   Parents may communicate with committee /
    officers / coaches via email or in person.
    Mobiles are at the discretion of the individuals,
    however, please be considerate of their status
    as volunteers.
