Jim Wid Tennis supports Tennis Australia’s stance and efforts in helping educate parents on their important role within the child’s sporting journey. The following are some ideas and education that we would like you, the parent, to be aware of.
Jim and staff encourage all parents to remain off the court during their child’s lesson.  This enables both the coach and student/s to concentrate entirely on the lesson, create independence for the child, promote a child’s decision making skills and build the student-coach relationship.
As a parent / guardian of a participant in any activity held / run by Jim Wid Tennis you agree to try and meet the following requirements in regard to your conduct during any such activity, program or event to the best of your abilities:
  • Treat your child the same irrespective of them winning or losing
  • Remember that your child plays for their enjoyment not yours
  • Try to have fun when you are around your children at competitions and training. Well-directed humour can be a great de-stressor
  • Look relaxed, calm and positive on the sidelines
  • Make friends with other parents at competitions
  • Get involved in appropriate ways if your child or the coach behaves in unacceptable ways during competitions
  • Let the coach do the coaching
  • Understand that children will benefit from a break sometimes and that involvement in other sports is okay
  • Be there when the child performs poorly. Be an understanding listener rather than a critic, judge and/or fixer
  • Be prepared to give your child some space so that he/she can grow and develop as an independent person
  • Let your child know that your love for them is not associated with their sporting performances
  • Communicate with your child and ask them how they are really feeling about their sport and about competing in particular
  • Occasionally let your child compete without you being there and hovering over them
  • Emphasise the good things your child did in preparing for and during the match/tournament
  • Try to avoid:
    • Saying “we’re playing today”. Instead say “you’re playing today”
    • Giving your child credit for accepting the responsibility of performing
    • Getting too pushy or believe that you are indispensable. Let the coach do the coaching
    • Living through your child’s performances
    • Turning away when your child’s behaviour is unsportsmanlike.
    • Telling your child what he/she did wrong after a tough match
    • Making enemies with your child’s opponents or family during a match/tournament
    • Making your child feel guilty by reminding them about all the time, money and sacrifices you are making for his or her sport
    • Thinking of your child’s sporting performances as an investment for which you expect a return
    • Badgering, harassing or using sarcasm to motivate your child
    • Comparing your child’s performances with those of other children
    • Forcing your child to go to training. If they are sick of training find out why and discuss it with them
If we decide to change our terms & conditions, we will post those changes on this page, and/or update the terms & conditions modification date below. If there are any questions regarding these terms & conditions please contact us using the information in our contact page.

These terms & conditions were last modified on 29th June, 2019.

Thank you
