Working Together for a Mental Advantage - A parent/carer and child session
This workshop is an opportunity for parents/carers and children to work together on helping and supporting the player's mental skills.
Professor Chris Harwood and Dr. Sam Thrower will take parents and players through a set of pre-match, during match and post-match tasks and exercises, including an activity to explore their between-point routines. This session aims to help players feel motivated and supported in terms of ideas focused on their concentration, emotional control, and confidence on court.
Once you've attended the Competition Parenting Workshop you can attend our follow-on workshop - 'Nurturing your child's psychosocial skills through Tennis: Applying the 5Cs approach'. This two hour, free webinar provides further guidance for parents to support their experiences in tennis and explain how they can support their child using the 5Cs model (Commitment, Communication, Concentration, Control and Confidence).
