PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany Municipal Alliance (MAC) invites all coaches and parents to take a night to educate on “Bullying in Sports: The Injuries We Don’t See” presented by Coach Randy Nathan.  This event will be held at Central Middle School on Thursday, April 28 at 7:00 p.m.

Bullying In Sports is a powerful presentation that increase awareness of bullying and bullying behavior that is associated within sports. Coach Randy addresses the areas where bullying behavior exists, identifies the warning signs of being bullied and/or aggressive behavior, shares effective strategies for dealing with conflict and prejudice and encourages those in athletics to become “Upstanders” and leaders on their team, schools and communities.

Coaches: Coaches play a critical factor in a player’s life. Coaches are encouraged to become aware of their own style and behavior, while simultaneously holding their player’s accountable for their conduct on and off the field. The coach-player Bullying_in_Sports_front_cvr1-682x1024relationship is one of the most valuable assets in addressing the culture within schools.

Players: Student-Athletes are unknowingly being indoctrinated on the three main components of bullying behavior. They may be critical elements of success in sports, however they are detrimental in the classroom. Raising their awareness of their behavior will encourage them to become leaders and Upstanders.

Parents: A consumer mentality has infiltrated youth sports. Parents invest large sums of money to provide their player an advantage. As a result there is an expectation of a return on that investment. Players experience increased stress, coaches are confronted and spectators go uncontrolled.

Coach Randy is an international keynote speaker, workshop facilitator and edutainer. His high energy and dynamic approach engages participants by introducing valuable strategies to overcome obstacles and inspires them to achieve their personal goals.
