Parenting of Athletes - What really matters and why?
Understand why and develop a strategy
Parents as the key to success for most young athletes
Understand how to develop a strategy as a parent, help the young athlete next to you and engage with the coaches and organisations better.
As a coach, I am used to working with parents, athletes and other key stakeholders. However, it hasn't always been like this. To me I want to understand how important each stakeholder group is for the development of an athlete.
To me, parents are not involved as much as they could or should be.
Why? What are the challenges from a coaches point of view? How can you, as a parent, help your child to become a better athlete but more than this a better person?
In this online event, we will discuss:
What are the challenges a coach experiences working with parents
What are the challenges the parents experience working with coaches
What is a dual-pathway for younger athletes and why this is important
How could (and should) the communication be handled between coaches and parents
What things the parents and the coaches should avoid
How parents and coaches could work closely together
This online webinar preliminarily aims to help parents. However, is also very relevant for coaches who are interested to hear a working, structured approach to engage with parents.
What would you receive as part of the webinar:
the complete recording of the webinar
a checklist to understand where you are currently
a simple following pathway to make sure that there is a good setup for further communication
Things to do and avoid doing
