≪Organizer Abstract≫
Playing sports occupies an important place in the life of elementary school children. Community sport clubs can provide children with adequate opportunities to exercise. However, researchers have indicated certain problems faced by such clubs, due to their status of being volunteer associations. Parents' involvement, such as by taking turns in performing club duties, attending club activities with their children, and securing training grounds, among others, is indispensable for running community sports clubs. Through such activities, parents get involved in different interpersonal relationships with coaches, players, other parents, and their children.
In this symposium we would like to discuss the characteristics and problems in such interpersonal relationships from both parents' and coaches' perspectives, which have not been much investigated to date. We aim to develop a psycho-educational program for parents who have elementary school children playing community sports.
