Young people need models, not critics.
Parents are increasingly looking for ways to involve themselves in their kid’s sports. This includes micromanaging coaches, acting out on the sidelines and applying pressure to athletes that leads to anxiety and long, silent rides home. The result is an athletic experience for children and teenagers that has become less enjoyable and the impact does not match the parent’s intent. Olympic level coach Justin Kavanaugh returns to scare parents straight on how their actions affect performance and offers solution on how to best engage with kids and coaches to help everyone get the most out of a very impressionable time in an athlete’s life.
