Learning to compete on the stage of high school sports is a big transition for youth athletes and is often perplexing for their parents. In The Double-Goal Coach, Positive Coaching Alliance founder Jim Thompson articulated two goals of sports: winning on the scoreboard and the more important goal of using sports to teach life lessons. Now in The High School Sports Parent, Thompson provides guidance and practical, easy-to-use tools to show how parents can maintain a Second-Goal focus to: - Help their teen thrive and become a Triple-Impact Competitor who makes himself, his teammates, and the game better - Navigate the complicated high school sports landscape - Use high school sports endless procession of teachable moments to teach and reinforce positive character traits - Deal effectively with common dilemmas faced by high school sports parents Done right, high school sports is a meaningful development experience that athletes will remember for a lifetime. But that requires sports parents who understand their role and play it to the hilt. Research-based and reflecting Thompson s 25 years of pioneering work in youth sports, The High School Sports Parent is a roadmap for the tumultuous trip that parents embark upon when their children transition into high school sports.
