A large number of parents become their child’s sports coach at some point along the sporting journey, often through choice, whilst others simply fall into the role.
We champion the parent sport coach, as without the work of these individuals many sports programmes would not exist.
This book provides support for those already involved or thinking of taking on the role of coaching their own children. It highlights the potential positives of the role, the challenges that are faced and provides tips and strategies to ensure that the whole experience is a positive one for you, your child and the whole family.
Featuring unique insights and encouragement from 23 leading figures in the sporting world across 14 sports including Harry Redknapp, Michael Vaughan, Stuart Lancaster, Liz McColgan and David Leadbetter.
