In keeping with PCA’s ideal of the Double-Goal Coach® – who has a goal of winning and an even more-important goal of teaching life lessons through sports – I will be a Second-Goal Parent®, focused on the goal of using sports to teach life lessons, while leaving the goal of winning to players and coaches.​
I will use positive encouragement to fill the Emotional Tanks of my children, their teammates, and coaches. I understand that, like the gas tank of a car, a full Emotional Tank can take people most anywhere.​
I will reinforce the “ELM Tree of Mastery” with my child (E for Effort, L for Learning, M for Bouncing back from Mistakes). Because I understand that a mastery approach will help my child succeed in sports and in life, I will: • encourage my child to exert maximum EFFORT • help my child LEARN through sports • urge my child to get past MISTAKES by using a Mistake Ritual, such as a flushing motion, to trigger a reminder to flush the mistake and move on to the next play​
I will set an example for my child by Honoring the Game, respecting ROOTS (Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, and Self). If I disagree with an official’s call, I will Honor the Game and be silent.​​
I will use a Self-Control Routine to avoid losing my composure if I grow frustrated. I will take a deep breath, turn away from the game to refocus, count backwards from 100 or use self-talk (“I need to be a role model. I can rise above this.”)​
I will refrain from negative comments about my child’s coach in my child’s presence so that I do not negatively influence my child’s motivation and overall experience.​
I will be as prompt as possible dropping my child off and picking my child up from practices and games.​
Shalom does not own a school bus or van. Historically, parents have provided transportation for players by driving to the away games. Every player must have parental permission to travel with an approved adult. My son/daughter has my permission to travel with an approved adult to and from away games and in the event of an accident will not hold Shalom liable.​
In the event I can not be reached in an emergency, I give permission to the physician or supervising nurse selected by the school advisor, to hospitalize, secure proper treatment for, and to order injection, anesthesia, or surgery for my child as needed. ​
I hereby grant permission for my child to be photographed and/or video recorded while participating in athletic programs and activities of Shalom Christian Academy. It is my understanding that photographs are the sole property of Shalom Christian Academy and will be used for advertising or promotional purposes (such as Shalom's social media, website, and print publications). I give permission for my child's name to be included for such purposes. Please note: if a parent chooses not to grant consent for photo/video, a student may be asked to step out of a group photo, cropped out of a photo, or have their face blurred for promotional posting or publication. ​​​​​​
I have read the student athlete guidelines found in the Student Athletic Handbook and agree to follow them.​
