YOUTH SPORTS 101:Top Tips for Moms & Dads
  • Let kids participate in determining when they are ready for sports.
  • Give priority to your child’s own interests.
  • Don’t use sports as a baby-sitter.
  • Emphasize the process of enjoyment rather than the product of winning.
  • Evaluate your child’s coach.
  • Don’t live your dreams through your children.
  • Mom & Dad: Ask ‘what’ questions, not ‘why’ questions.
  • Keep your eyes on your child. If your child misses the shot, you will be the first person they will need to make eye contact with.
