NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Youth sports coaches and parents had a chance to pick the brains of some of the top college coaches in the country at Yale Wednesday night.
Area coaches and parents had a two-hour discussion with Yale’s lacrosse, football, men’s basketball, volleyball and men’s hockey coaches. Many of the topics focused on what to do if you’re a coach and ways to deal with parents who may not be too happy with their child’s performance or playing time.
Yale’s coaches say they enjoyed the night and learned as well as gave parents some advice to take home.
“Just let them have some fun and understand that that’s really the most important thing,” said Yale men’s basketball coach James Jones. “Winning and losing is great, it’s important, but the most important thing is kids go out and have a good time, have fun.”
