This video was produced by CAAD, with support from the CIAC and the Connecticut High School Coaches Association. This professionally done video was developed to assist schools with the ever increasing problems created by the parents of athletes. The video identifies some unpleasant parent personalities and highlights strategies parents can employ to enhance their child’s athletic experience.
Narrated by ESPN’s Suzy Kolber and Mike Golic, the video calls to attention three major themes:
- Support your child AND their entire athletic program.
- Make your child’s sport fun for them, not stressful.
- Keep your child’s sports experience in perspective and see how you and they fit into the big picture.
