I was surfing the internet for some inspiration and found this quote. I don’t know who said it, so apologies to who did, but it is the best quote for an athlete, old or young.
“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become, the hours of practice, the coaches (and parents) who push you, and the fans who cheer for you, is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. Play for her.”
Why the brackets in the quote? That’s my addition. The role of parents is growing increasingly and becoming a factor that affects the athletes and, in my very own experience, also coaches.
So this month I am outlining my top two pieces of advice for parents and coaches.
