Welcome to my All Star Podcasting Series!
This 10-week series features 10 indepth podcast discussions with some of my best past podcast guests. In my other podcasts, we touched on some of these subjects, but I want to go deeper, ask harder questions, and give you information that will truly help you as you parent your athlete.
We are discussing:
- Mental Toughness
- Playing Time
- Your Child’s College Dream
- Time-saving Tips for Busy Sports Parents
- Setting Goals
- Travel Teams
Today’s Podcast: Dealing with the Frustrations of Playing Time
One of the biggest issues that parents face in youth sports is playing time. Maybe your child can’t earn a starting spot, maybe he is a starter, but gets pulled out frequently, maybe she struggles just to get off the bench. Whatever the scenario, parents everywhere find reasons to complain and get agitated as they watch the game.
This week’s podcast guest works at one of the most prestigious athletic academies in the US. James Leath is a leadership coach at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He has some great insights into the playing time issue and how parents and athletes can handle the conflicts that arise.
