Winning and losing: the lifeblood of sports. Every team wants to win; nobody likes to lose.
If your child’s been playing for awhile, I’m sure he is no different. How does he handle winning and losing? With humility? With arrogance? With anger?
You can sugar coat it all you want–Let’s all just have fun or It’s not whether you win or lose; it’s how you play the game–but every single athlete and coach I’ve met prefers winning over losing.
In this episode of the Sports Parenting Podcast, I talk with Craig Haworth from WinningYouthCoaching.com about how to help kids deal with both winning and losing. Craig produces the Winning Youth Coaching podcast, a weekly podcast for coaches and for parents who coach.
As a youth sports coach, husband, father of three, he believes that coaches can change the self-esteem and future of the kids they coach. Watch for his new release 97 Minutes to Plan Your Winning Season coming this month.
