Welcome Parents of Student Athletes

For Parents Youth sports are very different today than they were just a generation ago, as more kids than ever are involved in serious travel leagues and often train year-round in an effort to maximize their athletic abilities. As a result of this high intensity, increasingly more kids need adult guidance when it comes to avoiding youth sport burnout, deciding whether to specialize in one sport only, or learning basic sport science skills that can help them overcome anxiety and play to their full athletic potential.

Our line of parent education programs are designed to help you:

  • Help your child learn important athletic transferable skills through sport participation
  • Learn skills to develop strong and healthy relationships with coaches
  • Help your child improve his or her mental toughness by learning basic sport performance science skills
  • Quickly identify and respond to problems kids face in youth sports, including burnout, injuries, slumps, and quitting
  • Understand the realities of “making it” in sports, and develop future plans in the best interest for your family
