Your child’s ability to set goals is critical to success in both sports and life! When Tiger Woods was a young boy, he set out to break all of Jack Nicklaus’s records. Tiger reminded himself of his dream every night. As sport parents you must help your child set appropriate goals.
But simply setting goals isn’t enough. Athletes also need to commit to evaluating and reformulating goals. Athletes need to set challenging and appropriate goals, but without the heavy burden of strict expectations. In addition to establishing goals for competition, your child can also establish and monitor goals for practices. This will help them stay committed and on track.
