Notes from Session

Dr Karl Steptoe ‘Athletes bring to the high-performance environment the models that they’ve learnt at home.’

Today’s aim:

  • •Give more time & energy  for athlete /child development
  • •Give better outcomes for athlete /child development.

Workout three key [measurable] parent behaviours to influence….

Richard’s Top Three. 

Behaviour towards coaches/ teachers- Emails/communications which are curious. 

Behaviours towards their children- Conversions which build mindset/character [Process rather than results focused]

Attitude towards sport- Sport is subjective
