Competitions can be emotional for children, parents and coaches. Therefore, ensuring that feedback is well-timed and delivered appropriately is very important.
This guidance (PDF) gives coaches and parents useful information to follow.
When planning feedback, you should consider these factors:
- what feedback to offer
- Enhancing parental involvement in youth sport – recommendations for coaches
- Improving parent-coach relationships – strategies for coaches
- Optimising parental involvement in sport – guidance for parents
For more on this subject, see our guidance on promoting positive parental behaviour on our Parents in sport topic pages.
We also have a section with information specifically for parents and carers.
