How Sports Can Transform Our Children

Please join Clinical Psychologist and Sport Psychology Consultant Dr. Richard Ginsburg for The Bush School’s sixth virtual installment of Parent University on May 4 at 5:00 p.m.


Travel teams, early specialization, daily practices, and competitive tryouts are dominating our recreational and school sports programs across the country at all levels. While there is much attention given to the pressures our sporting culture places on athletes, parents are in need of support to guide their young athletes through these challenging times and endeavors, particularly as athletes move from one developmental stage to the next. 


In this hour-long discussion, the Three-Step-Approach (Know Your Child, Know Yourself, and Know Your Child’s Environment) will be reviewed as a means to help parents navigate this unpredictable and demanding sports environment in the service of helping their children achieve to their best ability while developing strong and lasting character. This discussion is pertinent for parents/guardians of athletes of all ages.
