Sporting Parent Advice 

Register for the program to begin receiving weekly communications

The majority of sportspeople who succeed have supportive parents who are always available but rarely if ever pushy.

Research was carried out at Waikato University (New Zealand) in the early 1990s that targeted some of New Zealand's greatest sporting performers and the only aspect that was consistent amongst them all was that they all believed their parents were supportive and not pushy.

The research clearly indicated that if you want your child to fail then push them.

Only a few (on the world scene) have succeeded when pushed and it is debatable whether they turn out to be the types of people we want our children to be.


This Program provides parents with ideas and thoughts that will keep them focused on the role of 'support' while providing lots of information that will better prepare them to provide that support.

The program content will help parents understand what athletes go through and therefore provide the knowledge to the parents that will enable them to support their family the best they can.

The weekly communications are designed to provoke thought and the search capabilities of the program will enable parents to have advice whenever they want it or need it most.

What do you get when you register for the program?


After you have registered for the Advice program(s) of your choice you will receive an email to notify you that your next communication is available.

2. At any time you can log onto the website, run a 'search' on any word and be able to read the communications already received that relate to that issue.

Each email sent also has the provision to ask questions to the author and so additional assistance is available.


The communications you receive will always be available to review and search even after your subscription for new communications has expired.


Here are some sample communications that will enable you to 'get a feel' for the concept.
