Youth sport, and in particular youth soccer, can be a minefield for parents – knowing the do’s and dont’s can be fraught with questions – some of which relate to supporting your child’s game such as:
“How can I help my child develop greater confidence?”
“Should I encourage my child to play other sports?”
“Should I personally coach my child?
And some of which may relate to your attitudes, behaviours and actions in the soccer environment, such as:
“How should I behave on the sidelines?”
“Should I push my child to attain better standards or should I be hands off?”
“How do I manage coaching decisions I’m uncomfortable with?”
