Important Information For Parents

Changes for KRVA Girls Club Programs for 2018-19 Season

These changes for the upcoming season are a result of the majority of club directors feeling that these adjustments will be positive. These decisions were made based on both in-person meetings held with club directors on June 15 and 16, 2018. Also included in the decisions were survey results collected. The changes are approved and the appropriate Operating Codes will be changed and reposted to reflect these updates. Please contact the KRVA office with any questions. Remember these changes are for the Girls Clubs ONLY.

Parent Involvement

Parents can play many roles in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.
