Coaching Your Student's Passion

In 2010, Cypress Christian hosted a special event featuring Bruce Brown and we have continued to bring back a speaker form that organization each year for our Athletic Parent Meeting. 

How parents can help their child achieve more.

Parents are really coaches, yet many parents do not really understand how to relate to the athlete that lives in their home.  Bruce Brown has been a coach for over 35 years and has five daughters.  His insight into the role of parents in athletics will impact your life and relationship with your children for years to come.  No matter the age of your student or what activities, sports or fine arts, they are involved in, you will benefit from this evening with Bruce Brown.

The summary gives bullet points regarding the roles of the player, the coach and the parents in athletics so that it will be a good memory for all that are involved.
