    Episode #29: Helping Your Teen Athlete Build Better Habits

    Episode #29: Helping Your Teen Athlete Build Better Habits

    One of the biggest gifts an athlete can acquire by playing sports, in
    addition to the fun stuff like winning, learning about the power of
    teamwork and leadership, is the skillsets that can be developed over time
    which lead to creating good habits for life.

    Habits which make you successful in life: such as being on time, doing
    extra, working hard even when no one is watching.

    This week Kirsten and Susie speak about the benefits of helping our teen
    athletes build good habits & how to better do that. If it’s driven by will
    power it won’t last long, but if it’s work ethic that’s been created by
    doing the little things every day, this adds up exponentially over time.

    Weindel, the Associate Club Director and Coach for the Sunshine Volleyball
    Club. Sunshine is the #1 club in Southern California and is consistently

    you’ll want to hear this episode where we discuss what age to start

    Welcome parents to the #RaisingAthletes Podcast.

    Episode #26: Why Does Your Athlete Play? Kirsten & Susie

    Episode #26: Why Does Your Athlete Play? Kirsten & Susie

    Four ways you can support your athlete through the pressures of youth
    sports

    Parenting is tough and responding in a way that is not only supportive but
    beneficial to your child can be tricky some times. Understanding WHY your
    teen plays is so helpful in supporting him on his journey.

    Today Susie and Kirsten discuss four ways to support your athlete as
    adversity occurs. When we have the tools as parents to support them, it can
    make for a much more enjoyable ride for both YOU and your child. It doesn’t
    have to be overwhelming.

    Let’s do this!

    Episode #25: Dan Mavraides, Qualifying for Tokyo Olympics 2020 FIBA 3x3 Hoops

    Episode #25: Dan Mavraides, Qualifying for Tokyo Olympics 2020 FIBA 3x3 Hoops

    Dan Mavraides is a top-ranked FIBA 3x3 professional basketball player and a
    2020 Olympic hopeful. Prior to playing 3x3 professionally, he played in the
    top 5x5 leagues in Greece and Italy. He graduated from Princeton University
    in 2011 where he was the two-time team MVP and let the Tigers to an Ivy
    League Championship and NCAA tournament birth.

    But for all of Dan’s success, which is tremendous, the most impressive part
    of his story is that he is a self-professed “late bloomer” and what gifts
    that gave him. It has taught him to be curious, become resilient and be
    grateful for every opportunity. He says he has probably more than
    compassion for others because his path wasn’t a straight line and the
    insight that he’s gained has helped him, now at the age of 30 continue to
    pursue his hoops dreams, one more time.

    Dan’s personality is infectious. He’s also a motivational speaker, so
    anyone looking for inspiration for high school or college kids, he is
    outstanding at sharing his story and how never giving up is the key to
    success.

    Episode #24: Austin Hatch- Adversity is Opportunity

    Episode #24: Austin Hatch- Adversity is Opportunity

    Austin Hatch is a survivor. A two-time plane crash survivor, he epitomizes
    what it means to be resilient. In 2003, at the age of 8, Austin’s mother,
    sister and brother were tragically killed plane crash. Eight years later,
    with many hours of hard work, the 6’6” basketball phenom was offered a
    college scholarship from his dream school, University of Michigan. Just
    nine days later, Austin would be aboard a plane with his father and “second
    mother” (he never considered her a step-mom) and this plane too would go
    down, killing both his parents and leaving Austin in a coma with severe
    injuries including traumatic brain injury.

    Today, I was so honored to speak with Austin and hear him talk about how he
    made it to the University of Michigan through tireless work, unrelenting
    positivity that “a miracle is going to happen” and belief that he was truly
    blessed to have had all of his amazing family members in his life.

    We can learn so much from Austin’s outlook as we parent and raise adults
    about what it means to be optimistic, even in darkest of times and what the
    belief in yourself and gratitude for the gifts you have been given can do
    for you.
