Parents Workshops

"Parents are often a better predictor for how their children might grow their potential than the children are themselves. Behind most top performers you’ll find encouraging, stimulating and demanding parents" - The Gold Mine Effect, Ankersen. 2012

But what do, “… encouraging, stimulating and demanding” parents actually do? Working with Governing Bodies and sports clubs, we run workshops for parents to help them better understand their crucial role in developing successful young athletes. They are NOT their coach! But they do have a crucial role in supporting their learning as they go through the ups and downs sport throws at them.

Effective parents are crucial to sporting success and if you want to learn more about how we can support the parents in your sport, please get in touch.

And what we do works…
