Aims of the webinar

To explore the demands and challenges parents face, in this webinar we plan to:

  • show how important it is for coaches and organisations to understand the experiences of parents in order to facilitate their work with them
  • review literature examining parents’ experiences of youth sport and the potential factors impacting upon parental involvement
  • discuss potential strategies that may be used to help promote positive parental involvement in sport
