WHAT ABOUT PARENTS SPECTATING?

  • We encourage and welcome parent/friends/relatives spectating!
  • Any observation during the session will help you positively relate to your player’s experience after camp is over.
  • Based on expert research and experience, we ask that all spectators:
    • Observe for the purpose of complimenting the improvements of players after the session and being supportive of their good efforts and good attitudes
    • Remain in the designated areas – a non-interacting distance.
    • Your player’s intrinsic motivation and self-management skills will grow best this way.
    • Avoid comparisons between players or corrections that could be (and often are) taken as negative rather than helpful.

WHAT IS “PARENT DAY?”

  • Each camp session’s final day provides an opportunity for parents/friends/relatives to join their player on the CIRCUIT!
  • Check your player’s camp schedule for the date for PARENT DAY!
  • Dress for the occasion! You will enjoy running the bases, catching, fielding, pitching, hitting, … AND seeing and hearing what they’ve been experiencing!
  • Following the CIRCUIT, you will enjoy watching your player in their game!
  • Your presence is a BIG DEAL to your player! Plan ahead!
