Parents & coaches going in the same character building direction

Having a great character on and off the sports field is what produces lifelong success.

However, coaches often find working with parents an uneasy relationship.

Parenting often feels confusing and exhausting, seeming to be ineffectual and leaving us guilt-ridden. Being the parent of an athlete makes it even harder.

Can we have the courageous honesty to work together to fuel world-changing character in our children?

I (The Non-perfect Dad) enable parents to be courageously honest, discovering the confidence and resources to be themselves, to have fun and take control of the hardest and most rewarding job a person can ever do – being a parent.

Together coaches and parents, with my support, create a courageously honest culture which will lead to everyone going in the same direction as they nurture world challenging character.

…it’s time to raise kids who are going to leave the world a better place than they found it!
