Early on, I thought it was a great idea to go in and hear and see what was 
going on.  Now, I never go in to any of the presentations and any other 
coach on our team who has worked with the team on a presentation, does not 
go in.  However, I think it is no big deal if parents who were not involved 
go in to take pictures and videos.  The videos provide a tremendous amount 
of feedback for the team.

Long story longer, if you are a coach, I'd stay outside, if you are a parent 
who is interested in seeing what goes on and also taking pictures and/or 
videos, I think there is no issue.  One last thing, we always coach our 
teams that they are on their own in a presentation room and we tell them, if 
they look to an adult in the room, it might adversely affect their 
presentation.  We have had no issues as far as I can tell.
