importance of the sport parent

One of the biggest weaknesses I see in Gymnastics coaches is poor people skills with parents.

That’s especially true of young coaches who haven’t learned the hard way yet.

Many parents need to be convinced that a young coach knows what they are doing. (Those same parents assume an older coach does have the experience to do the job. Indeed, it’s not fair.)

Are you spending enough time keeping YOUR parents informed and onboard with shared goals?

That’s from Lisa Mitzel’s book FOCUSED and Inspired. Recommended.
