It may be naive but I agree with spleen. Why wouldnt a coach want to get to know a parent? "Know" as we should talk every day -NO. But College Coaches should not be some kind of unapproachable god. The best coaches get to know their players and have relationships with their players. I respect all and I will not coward down to any person. If a coach thinks he or she is almighty and I am unworthy of communication with them I would find another school.This is pretty naive. A college coach doesn't want to get to know the parents unless you are a distraction. Then they just won't recruit your DD. You may never one conversation with the college coach the entire 4 years.
