Successful strategies for engaging parents in your organization

"Empowering parents to get involved in your organization is one of the best ways to get all the little things done..."

In episode two of the Directors Club with Mike Bonelli, Mike is joined by veteran hockey directors Kim McCoullough, Director of Total Female Hockey, and Jim Haverstrom, Manager of Operations for the Florida Jr Panthers, to discuss how youth programs can incorporate parents into hockey operations and why it’s an important factor to organizational success.

“Empowering parents to get involved in your organization is one of the best ways to get all the little things done and give you time to direct and administer. When you take a group of independently talented people, you can create a culture in which they can manage and merge their talents in the best interest for you, your program and their kids.”
