For Both Competitive and Recreational Athletes, Youth Sports Should Be Fun
Fun and competition can go hand-in-hand. At the same time that sports can be physically and mentally demanding as well as competitive, kids can be having fun.
Consider the following answers about yourself and playing sports.
1. Why do you play sports?
2. What would you like your parents to do—if anything—at your sports competitions?
3. What would you like your parents to say to you—if anything—on the car ride home after a sports competition?
Think about how you would answer each of these questions, then discuss your answers with your parents. Also encourage your parents to read the Parents Page at YouthSportsTrainer.com.
