Sports and parents:
Parents are the integral part of any sport. At times parents become over enthusiastic and unknowingly put pressure on the child through performance expectations, exercise routine and so forth. At times, they want to fulfill their dreams as a sportsmen which were left unaccomplished. Or they simply want their child to be successful all the time. All this causes stress and pressure on the player and infact results in poor performance. Hence, this workshop is meant to help parents have a realistic perspective to their child's sports career without pressurizing them and helping them to use their own potential to the fullest to achieve success.
Parents as Motivators:
Sportsmen want their parents to be motivators. They want parents to accept them in their victory as well as in failure. If the player considers his sport as an enjoyment and not as a compulsion, then they will surely make their parents feel proud of themselves. But this mainly lies in the hands of parents. Hence the more motivated the players, the more they do well in their sport. The workshop emphasizes on:
What is motivation and how is it important in sports:
Types of motivation.
Role of parents in motivating players.
Handling pressures and anxiety.
At times it is seen that more than players, the parents get nervous and anxious at the time of sporting performance of their child. This definitely puts a lot of pressure on players too which directly affects their performance. Hence, parents need to understand the psychology of each child and accordingly have appropriate expectations from them. The topics covered are:
What are performance pressures? And how are they created?
What is the role of parents and how can they help children minimize pressure?
Certain techniques for parents to control pressure and anxiety.
