Ask your child how they would like you to support them on Game Days: before the game, during the game and after the game. Decide what you as parents can realistically affect e.g., how much rest and sleep, how we will get there, what might be for lunch, etc. Be sure their playing gear and footwear are ready in advance. It may also be worthwhile asking your child what they DON’T want you to do on game days, e.g. talk to them while they are trying to play and criticize them and their teammates.
How do you support the development of your son’s or daughter’s potential during the game? After the game?
