The Positive Sports Parent Series
Positive Coaching Alliance, Los Angeles is hosting a series of talks about youth sports featuring famous parents. The first episode (March 29th) was held here at El Camp and featured beach volleyball stars Kerri Walsh Jennings and Casey Jennings.
Kerri and Casey discussed the state of youth sports today and raising three children. The couple gave the audience their unique perspective on managing their time, energy and efforts regarding their kids’ participation in sports.
To hear directly from two of the most accomplished athletes in Beach Volleyball really resonated to the diverse audience. Topics covered the car ride home, Club vs Rec, not playing sports at all and the generational changes facing parent who’s kids do things completely different than what they did.
Parents then went through a PCA Second-Goal Parent Workshop delivered by Ruben Nieves, Director of Training for PCA and a National Champion Volleyball Coach from Stanford. Parents learned their role in youth sports is not winning but focusing their kids on learning life lessons through sports.
Thank you to the Bay Club who sponsors the Series through EcoMedia CBS and to Children’s Hospital-LA for providing a health perspective from Dr. Bianca Edison, PCA-LA Board Member during the panel discussion.
The next Positive Sports Parent Series features Nomar Garciaparra and Mia Hamm on coaching their kids and their neighbors kids.
The event will, once again, be held at El Camp on April 12 at 6:30pm.
