Supporting Peak Performance

Keys to Parenting an Excellent Athlete

Parents are an essential part of the system that helps produce outstanding athletes.  They are uniquely positioned to provide the emotional and logistical support that all top tier performers need.  However, it is not always clear how parents can best support their children’s sport performance.  This workshop is designed to clearly state tools for effective sport parenting and discuss how these tools can best be put into action.

Goals and key components of the workshop:

1) Provide research-based information on the developmental process of becoming a top tier athlete.

2) Identify specific ways that parents can effectively support their children’s performance.

3) Promote discussion around how to balance family life with the increasing demands of performance activities.

This workshop is ideal for youth sports organizations and community groups.  If you would like to learn more, please feel free to contact Dr. Baker by phone or email and I will be happy to provide further details.
