“The Second-Goal Parent: Developing Winners in Life Through Sports” (75 minutes)

This interactive workshop explores the role of a Second-Goal parent, supporting their child so that he or she enjoys a positive experience in sports.


Topics discussed include:

  • Assessing your children’s goals and desires in youth sports in comparison with your own.
  • How to talk with your child about practices, games and what they are learning through sports.
  • How to enact and reinforce PCA’s major principles: Mastery of Sport (Not Just Scoreboard Results), which values effort, learning and bouncing back from mistakes and adversity; Filling Emotional Tanks, with the correct mix of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism; and Honouring the Game through appropriate sideline behaviour and interaction with coaches.


RSVP is required as booklets for all participants need to be ordered.  ALL are welcome – please feel free to invite a friend or coach from the neighbourhood.
