Parents are often asked to step up into the role of coach; it’s a big step from watching on the side-lines to being responsible for the wellbeing of not only your child but also the rest of the team.
In creating this course, CEO of WWPIS Gordon MacLelland has tapped into the world of the parent/coach viewing it from not only his experience but of that of some of the UK’s top sports personalities and other coaches involved at grassroots level.
Featuring encouragement from some of the worlds leading sports figures including Harry Redknapp, Michael Vaughan, Stuart Lancaster, Liz McColgan and David Leadbetter.
\'Parents are the bedrock of many sporting communities and we want to play our part in helping to support them on their coaching journey.\'
In Two Hats we look at mindset, psychology and family challenges – ensuring that home life doesn’t suffer when becoming a coach. It also offers tips on how to have those crucial conversations with your wider family network, separating the hats, engaging other parents, building an effective communication policy, keeping your head under pressure, managing the car journeys to and from events.
In this course there is a variety of media and we hope that it provides a range of tasks and strategies that allow all who complete the course to have practical things that they can use immediately in their role as a parent coach.
