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
