‘Non-Perfect’ Parents and Coaches Online Workshops

Being a parent is tough. Being a parent of a child or children in a national pathway can be even tougher.

That’s why Welsh Netball, Welsh Gymnastics, Welsh Athletics, Hockey Wales and Cricket Wales have teamed up to provide the ‘Non Perfect Parent’ series for 2020-21, in addition to a separate coach development series!

The programme will be led by the highly acclaimed Richard Shorter and will be delivered virtually given the current landscape. Richard has a long list of accomplished organisations he has worked with ranging from Manchester United, England Rugby, England Hockey, Saracens, Millfield School, Newcastle Falcons, the BBC and Somerset Cricket.

Over the course of six parent sessions (one per month across November-April) and three coach specific sessions a flavour of some of the benefits for parents can be found below, which will inevitably lead to better outcomes for children:

Benefits for parents

–        How to manage the juggle of being a parent in the pathway

–        How to manage the emotions of your child in the non-linear pathway journey

–        Managing COVID-19

–        Thinking about the coach-parent relationship, and the conversations that go on

–        Managing injury setbacks

–        Reflecting on game/competition day focus

–        Managing child workload

–        Helping kids self-manage their own sporting experience  

–        Helping parents navigate and manage social media  

Benefits for coaches

–        Developing coaching self awareness

–        Managing COVID-19

–        Managing expectations of athletes and parents  

–        Athlete feedback and projection

–        Helping kids self-manage their own sporting experience
