The role of parents and coaches in shaping a young athlete's journey is undeniably crucial. Their support, guidance, and management of their own emotions are key factors that can significantly impact an athlete's development and performance.


It is essential to understand the challenges that can arise when these roles are not managed effectively and how to navigate them for the athlete's benefit.

Sideline promotes the 'how to' for coaches and supporters to help young athletes be the best that they can be. It isn't just technical support; it is a holistic model that helps young people succeed.

The Sideline workshop has been designed to help supporters and coaches understand a young athletes experience and ideal support model, the challenges that come with being a supporter of an athlete and tools to assist the journey.
