Coach or manage your child’s sport team

Coaching or managing your child’s sport team is a great way to spend time with your child and encourage them.

  • Try to do this for each of your children at least once – even if it’s a sport you don’t have a strong interest in you can still be the team manager
  • Help your child train and practise for their sport – go for a run together, or do throwing/catching/hitting drills
  • If your child wants to play a sport you know nothing about – don’t automatically say “no”. Ask your child to teach you what it’s about, and find out about it from the internet and other sources.
