How To Support Your Super Sporty Child

This webinar is for parents of pupils that have been identified by their school as being on a potential pathway of performance within their chosen sporting field.

What is this webinar about?


Parents influence and guidance can play a vital role in their child’s engagement with sports and physical activity. Hitting the right balance with regards to encouraging the speed of their progress is something parents must consider; too much pressure can cause a child to give up sport in their teenage years alongside the added pressure of exams.

This webinar therefore informs parents how to enjoy and positively encourage and support their sporting journey to help them achieve the best outcome and have a life long investment in sport and physical activity.

The webinar will be delivered by Gordon MacLelland, the CEO and founder of ‘Working with Parents in Sport’. He is a leader in his field, having worked with organisations, clubs and coaches across multiple sports, from grassroots stage right through to Olympic pathway programmes.
