Description

It can be something of a minefield when it comes to sports parenting and no one can ever get it right 100% of the time, no matter how much they try. There is no such thing as a ‘perfect sporting parent’ and I can certainly vouch for that.
Parents have the ultimate influence over their children and play a vital role in ensuring that their children’s experience of sport is a positive one leading to a healthy and lifelong participation in sport and physical activity.
In creating this course, CEO of WWPIS Gordon MacLelland discusses the positives and challenges of sports parenting, gives you some helpful tips and strategies that you can use on a regular basis to ensure your role as a sporting parent is a successful and enjoyable one for both you and your children.
In ‘Great Sports Parenting’ we look at defining the importance of the parental role and what that means for us, why our children play and why they may quit, finding the right sport, coach and club, using the sports experience as a vehicle for character development, understanding potential, avoiding comparisons, the dangers of specialisation, helping avoid burnout, sideline support, parental peer pressure, asking great questions and managing the car journey to and from the sporting event.
In this course there is a variety of media and we hope that it provides a range of tasks and strategies that allow all who complete the course to have practical things that they can use immediately in their role as a sporting parent.
