Best of all, there will be no cost to attend.
“The Second-Goal Parent: Developing Winners in Life Through Sports” (75 minutes)
This interactive workshop explores the role of a Second-Goal parent, supporting their child so that he or she enjoys a positive experience in sports.
Topics discussed include:
- Assessing your children’s goals and desires in youth sports in comparison with your own.
- How to talk with your child about practices, games and what they are learning through sports.
- How to enact and reinforce PCA’s major principles: Mastery of Sport (Not Just Scoreboard Results), which values effort, learning and bouncing back from mistakes and adversity; Filling Emotional Tanks, with the correct mix of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism; and Honouring the Game through appropriate sideline behaviour and interaction with coaches.
RSVP is required as booklets for all participants need to be ordered. ALL are welcome – please feel free to invite a friend or coach from the neighbourhood.
