Is Sideline Behavior Affecting the Little League Experience in Your League?Updated Thursday March 12, 2015 by Chesapeake City Little League.
|As a parent, you want the best possible experience for your Little Leaguer®. But sometimes emotions run high - for you, your child, coaches and umpires - which may mean a bad experience. Knowingly or not, you as the parent may be negatively influencing your child's experience. You as the parent have more control over the quality of your child's experience than you may realize.
Little League is pleased to offer to all Little League® parents a free online learning opportunity from Positive Coaching Alliance. Featuring video-based sports-parenting tips from Positive Coaching Alliance National Advisory Board Member and Hall of Fame Manager Tony La Russa, the Little League Second-Goal Parent Quick Course provides a great foundation to start off the Little League season.
The interactive 30-minute course provides specific tips and tools that help you help your children get the most out of their Little League experience, letting players and coaches pursue the goal of winning, while you as a parent focus on a second, more important goal, ensuring your kids get all the valuable life lessons that baseball and softball uniquely offer.
Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a long-time national partner of Little League, is a national non-profit organization committed to developing Better Athletes, Better People through youth and high school sports.
