Hello

I take a bit of a different approach.  I found that having parents hanging
around the pit area became crowded and confusing.  Then also the parents
were directing their kid to do things when I was making a different plan.
Thus we ask parents to remain in the gym (robot area).  They are close if
needed but not interfering with the kids interacting with the other teams.
   The 3 coaches do the wrangling and organizing.  Maybe if you only have 2
coaches, have 1 or 2 particular parents designated to assist.

Good luck and most importantly have fun!!!
