Helps the kids become accountable to their learning
When playing competition your child has the opportunity to play without a coach on court, they will start to understand what they need to improve on or learn. When they bring that information to their coach they can spend more time practicing the specific needs of the child – this helps the child feel like they are in control of their development and want to practice more.
What’s your role as a parent?
Once you are registered in a team we encourage you to come and watch and support your child but also allow them the opportunity to learn on the court for themselves. No matter whether they have a win or a loss it is about them learning and enjoying themselves.
At some clubs, the parent will be required to be a team manager or match day supervisor. These requirements are not a major role, and a great way to stay involved with your child’s competition experience.
