The Role of Parents in Athletics discusses what a parent can do, concerning their children, to allow them to grow and to perform to the best of their ability. The DVD also addresses how parents can keep the proper perspective of their child’s involvement in sports from the athletes’ point of view. It explains what the role of all adults should be in the athletic arena and how parents can be an integral part of the positive sports-related memories of their kids. Among the topics covered: shared expectations, roles, and goals, red flags, parental roles during competition that help a child’s performance after the game – recovery time and space, “Just be my Dad/Mom”, and confidence builder or confidence cutter?
