Working with Parents in Sport
This workshop is aimed at youth officers, youth coaches, teachers and volunteers and will be delivered by Gordon MacLelland (founder of WWPIS). Working with Parents in Sport supports parents and coaches in working together to provide children with the best possible sporting experiences.
WWPIS deliver a huge amount of authentic content, designed to help parents make more informed decisions about their children’s sporting careers. They also aim to support coaches as they navigate the complexities of working alongside today’s sporting parents. Gordon as a speaker brings a wealth of experience from working with organisations, coaches and parents gathered through 20 years as a teacher and coach as well as a parent currently involved in children’s sport.
This workshop is supported by UK Coaching, is being written into some formal coaching qualifications by NGBs and is being used as part of CPD for others.
Coaches should have some new tips and strategies to use with parents immediately and within their coaching.
Workshops will cover:
Understanding todays parent
Games to play with parents in parents meeting and whilst watching
Knowing and using your parents to support
Types of communication
Managing the 'chimp'
Creating environments for parental engagement to thrive
This workshop will take place at Newforge Country Club on the 6th October, starting at 11:00am until 12.30pm
