Sports-and-Recreation Most negative experiences in athletics are caused by tension between coaches and sports’ parents. Issues arise because athletes and/or parents feel like the coach is being unfair. It is human nature for athletes and their parents to overrate the athlete’s skills and potential. This over-rating leads them to feel that they deserve better treatment from the player’s coach. Unfortunately, parents and players are not always objective in their analysis and this is often the source of the tensions. Of course, there are times when athletes and parents are correct with their opinion and coaches are wrong with player assessment. Either way, unfortunate youth sports situations occur between coaches and parents.

Usually, these players only be.e discontented after mom or dad start grumbling about the way the coach is treating them. Players only be.e upset with their coach after parents develop this negative attitude in the player’s mind. Players feel like they have to adopt the same negative attitude towards the coach.
