  18. Questions which are useful to ask your child, and perhaps more importantly to ask yourself are: Why does your child sail? Why do you want them to sail? Why invest all the time, money, sacrifice and hard work? What does success for your child in sailing look like to you? What’s the purpose?

  19. Coaches from a variety of different sports were asked about parental involvement in sport - what was their most common response? A) “The kids are great, it’s the parents that cause the problems. If I had my way I’d ban em all.” B) “They are an inconvenience that just have to be tolerated” C) A vital part of the support team Where You The Parents Fit In

  20. You, the parents, are: A vital part of the support team Valued members of the support team The most influential people in the development of your child We need your help! Reinforcing key messages - pulling in the same direction The RYA’s Philosophy

  21. The Support Team Parents Sailor Coach Manager Sport Scientists

  22. What is a habit? The overlap of: Knowledge – ‘What to do’ Skill – ‘How to do’ Attitude – ‘Why (want) to do’ Here’s where we need your support… Developing Good Habits

  23. Non-dependency – ‘teaching’ V’s ‘doing’ Creating a Professional Culture Dependent Independent Non-dependency

  24. Encourage a professional approach to sailing: Tick all the controllable boxes (process V’s outcome) Food – fuel for sailing Encourage training preparation: Clear goals to work on (strengths & opportunities) Warm-up and cool-down routines Creating a Professional Culture (cont.)

  25. Encourage positive evaluation: Strengths & opportunities (not outcome) Building confidence (prevent Alton Towers effect) Perspective (long term development) Encourage enjoyment: They are not doing it for you, but because they enjoy it Creating a Professional Culture (cont.)

  26. The Supportive Parent: Encourages professional habits and non-dependency Focuses on the processes (big picture) not the outcome Helps to reinforce the good stuff (regardless of performance) - build confidence Reinforces the messages of the support team Is aware that they are a source of pressure to their daughter/son. Manages their expectation so as not to heighten pressure Summary
