Parents will learn about how specific actions effect the performance of youth athletes.


  • Willingness to help your child be the best version of their self.


Sports hold the opportunity for our children to learn many of lifes lessons.  These lessons come from the process of learning the sport and growing in the sport.  We have to let our children walk through the process.  Our actions teach them lessons.  We, as parents, can get in the way of the process at times. 

This short course is designed to give you insight on how you can help our children gain grit, resilience, make better decisions and find joy through their participation in their sport.  Let's also have a conversation about how we sometimes help and hinder the learning process.  As we have a conversation and share our experiences and thoughts everyone gains a greater perspective! 

Let's jump in and start the conversation and share our perspectives.

Best Regards
