I often see small groups of parents circled up at volleyball tournaments discussing everything they would have done differently. If I am honest, I have been caught in these conversations. As a former coach, I have been the centerpiece of those conversations. The game or tournament is over and parents circle up to critique all that could have been better. We analyze and start forming stories of why our kid isn’t getting the opportunity they deserve or why the team isn’t performing as they should. This type of negativity is dangerous for our family, our child, and the team.
Minimizing the pressure is one of the most effective ways to improve performance and the experience for our kids. Research shows that where fear and anxiety increase, performance decreases! Check out this article on the importance of your role as a parent in Minimizing Pressure.
A few of the incredible clients we work with include industry leaders in their individual fields that continue to set the standard for success. We look forward to many years of this incredible partnership.
