Parents, we try a lot of different techniques to teach our young athletes how to be process-oriented, team-focused, happy, long-term athletes. Much of what we do comes from or is inspired by resources from the Positive Coaching Alliance. This is a non-profit dedicated to developing "Better Athletes, Better People." Awesome, right?
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about the importance of understanding your own motivation for having your child in youth sport, and I think PCA has the right idea about sport's greatest value for young athletes.
I encourage you to check out their resources for parents and athletes, and gain a better understanding of our goals for our young triathletes!
Have a great Monday!
