Future Stars Parent Info
At Tennis BC our goal is to ensure that tennis parents and coaches are educated on how to support their child and others during tournament play. Please find below some helpful pointers listed below:
- Parents must visit the tournament desk to ensure payment had been made and that the child has checked in for the event
- It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their child is present at the correct event location and prepared for his/her match at least 15 minutes before the scheduled match time.
- There is NO COACHING ALLOWED. Do not communicate with your child, visually or verbally while your child is playing a match.
- There is NO OUTSIDE OFFICIATING ALLOWED. This includes line calls and scoring. It is the responsibility of the players to learn these skills. If there are any disputes on court, it is the responsibility of the players to call for the Tournament Organizer or Court Monitor.
- Parents are not to communicate with their kids during a match. Should they need to pass a water bottle or any other items, they must do so through the Tournament Organizer or Roving Court Monitor.
- It is encouraged that all parents cheer and clap for good efforts and good points for all kids. It is considered as extremely unsportsmanlike to cheer for doubles faults or errors.
- Clapping for players’ mistakes will not be tolerated.
