COACHING ROLE

KEY QUALITY: Being a Self-Aware Athlete

  • Self aware athlete are able to correct errors in body movement, skill execution, emotional responses, concentration and mental attitude more quickly and effectively.Self awareness coaching leads to athletes that are self motivated, self-reliant, learn faster, react quicker, adapt to varying conditions and opponents more easily, have less injuries, and ultimately to improved sports (and life) performances.
  • The opposite of a self-aware athlete is a coach/parent dependant athlete.
  • Imparted through a “Cooperative” coaching process

PARENT ROLE

TOP 7 SUCCESSFUL PARENTING ATTITUDES TO ADOPT:

  • Constant Improvement vs Comparison
  • It is their journey, don’t make it about yours
  • In practice, what theydo is always more important than who they are with
  • Process over results
  • Reinforce that their attitude determines their altitude
  • Understand the real ROI (return on Investment)
  • Remember, this whole thing is about kids playing with a ball

PARENT ROLE

TRAPS PARENTS CAN FALL INTO IN THEIR CHILD’S DEVELOPMENT TAKING THEM OUTSIDE A HEALTHY ROLE:

  • “Looking for the Magic Syndrome”:
    • Usually starts after a small taste of success (Winning a tournaments, Provincial Champion, etc.)
    • “They need way more now” frenzy (Supplementing lessons at other Academies, multiple coaches around the city, etc.)
  • “Over-involvement” Behaviors
    • The trap is to be blown by every wind of advice rather than leaving the development to the experts. Even if their child is ‘successful’, always take advice with discernment (especially at tournaments). Listening will nearly always lead to trust-eroding mind-sets.

P.E.P

Parent Education Program

PARENT ROLE

“OVER-INVOLVEMENT” BEHAVIORS:

  • Encroaching on ‘coaching’ decisions
    • Which groups the players are in
    • If/when they should advance to higher groups
    • Who they are with in training
    • The drills they do and order of skills developed
  • Engaging in this behavior exhibits ‘over-involvement syndrome” and a lack of trust in the expertise of the coaching staff
  • Our response to parents engaging in these kinds of conversations will be gently ‘re-framed’: “Thank you for your input however, these are coaching staff decision and we need to all stay within our roles for your child’s maximum benefit.”In other words, please trust us!
  • Development experts should make these development decisions.

PARENT ROLE

ATTITUDES/BEHAVIOUR AROUND TRAINING:

  • If at the session, support rather than distract.
  • After the session, provide a supportive, “Emotionally Safe” environment

(Stop “Shoulding” on them).

  • Help them to practice. (coaching is risky but management & reinforcement is good)
parent role17

P.E.P

Parent Education Program

Be your child's cheerleader

PARENT ROLE

ATTITUDES/BEHAVIOUR AROUND COMPETITION:

  • How you react to difficult situations is critical (“More is caught than taught”).
  • Provide a supportive, “Emotionally Safe” environment (e.g. What is the first question you ask your child after a tournament match?)
  • Competitions are ‘pop-quizzes’ on indicators of applying what is learned in practice (emphasize process over results)
  • Have you identified your best location at events (if at all)? If in sight, temper your reactions.
  • Have you identified when is the best time for feedback (if at all)?
