9781581102277: Sports Success RX!: Your Child's Prescription for the Best Experience

Aimed at parents and coaches of organized sports, this easygoing and friendly discussion of unrealistic performance pressure avoids medical jargon and outlines both physical and emotional milestones that determine sports skill development in youth. Revealing that body chemistry, thinking skills, and emotional maturity all play important roles in athletic training, this guide introduces differing developmental timetables, emphasizing that a focus on personal accomplishments is a much more effective practice than a focus on simply winning. Clever chapter titles proceed from "First Serve" and "Free Throw" to "9th Inning" and "Final Lap and Cool Down," with each chapter providing a questionnaire that gauges a child's readiness for the skill levels discussed.
