Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by today's youth sports culture? Do you wonder what to do when everyone else seems to have their children on club sports teams by age 8 or 10? Have you ever considered whether or not to talk to a coach and how to best do that? Are you a coach who wants to make a difference in the lives of your players? If so, this episode is just for you!
Darcy McMurray has experience on all sides: she's been a player, a coach, a parent, and an child educator and advocate. She deeply understands the psychology and benefit of team sports and how it can equip our children for life. She also understands that it can be a harsh and unrelenting world to navigate. Darcy argues that both aspects are beneficial in the long run in our kids' lives.
We begin the interview covering positive coaching and team building strategies, then move into how to help our kids talk to their coach when there is a problem, and finish with parenting tips that help no matter what sport your child plays.
If you have a child in the world of sports, or if you are a coach, this is a must-listen!
