Too much focus on winning increases your child's anxiety.
Mouth is able to recreate an entire cheer leading routine he saw just once. I would bet good money he is a visual/Spatial learner.
Non-verbal Communication
The Sandwich Method
Talk to your child immediately in cases of poor sportsmanship/sportswomanship or dangerous behavior
.
Listen, rather than tell
Let your child set the terms

Effort
Learning
Mistakes are OK
We encourage our kids to always give 100%
We see sports as a way to constantly learn and improve
It's how we respond to them that' really matters
Too much anxiety decreases self-confidence, negatively affects performance and takes away
FUN
.
Tell your child you will always be proud of them as long as they give 100%
Tell your child that you want them to constantly strive to learn and improve.
Tell your child that mistakes are part of the game. They happen when one is trying new things and giving 100%. The best players bounce back from mistakes.
Tell your child that teams that focus on effort, constantly learning and improving, and bouncing back from mistakes actually win more than teams who consistently focus on the scoreboard.
Tell your child you want them to focus on the ELM Mastery Approach because they will feel less anxious, have more self-confidence and have more
FUN.

Five praises to one criticism
"good job"
but
"I noticed you kept your eyes forward rather than looking at your skates"
Not
Frowning
Eye-rolling
Head shaking
All tank-drainers
Teens interpret this expression as angry
Adults interpret this expression correctly- FEAR.
Make an effort to
SMILE
Useful information that empowers your child
"Remember that coach wants you to keep your elbows in when you block"
instead of
"You need to focus!"
"You've been really timing your hits well"
"Just make sure you are focusing on the opposing jammer and not getting distracted"
"You're getting to be a huge threat!"
Use if-then statements
Helps your child feel in control even while criticizing
"If you bend your knees, then you will be more stable"
Your child will feel less
People often talk about sports being good for our kids. But the good things don't
magically
happen.
Parents, coaches and the players themselves all need work together to create an environment where the positive effects can take place.
"Was there anything that you learned at practice today that might help you with other parts of your life?"
Have a specific
teachable moment
in mind, but try to allow your child to reach this conclusion on their own.
Use open-ended questions
"What was the best part of practice today?
"
"What would you like to work on before the next bout?"
Make sure they are ready to talk
Right after a bout when emotions may strong might not be the best time to talk.
Keep talks brief
Making talks about sports a positive experience will keep the conversations coming.
Make it miserable and your child will avoid them.

Refuse to bend/break the rules to win
Value and recognize that a worthy opponent brings out your best.
Respect officials even when we disagree.
Never do anything to bring down your team (on or off the track).
Live up to our standards of honoring the game, even when others don't.
Lead by example
Turn away from the action
Count to 20 (0r 50)
Take a deep breath
Youth sports environments can be emotionally volatile.
Parents, players and coaches must all use self-control and keep their temper in check!
How to honor the game with ROOTS:
Before the game
Tell your child you are proud of them regardless of how well they play.
Tell them to play hard and have fun.
Remind them "nervous is normal".
During the game
After the game
Let the coaches coach.
Fill your child's (and teammates') emotional tanks.
Cheer good plays and good efforts by both teams.
Thank the officials for doing a difficult job.
Thank the coaches for their efforts.
Remind your child that you are proud of them- especially if the game didn't go well.
The Coach/Parent Partnership
Kids will have a better sports experience if we work with coaches to create a positive environment.
What is a responsible coach?
A responsible coach...
Always ensures player safety
Places education and character development before wins
Instills a love of roller derby
Increases player self-confidence
Learns all they can about roller derby
Is able to provide the technical instruction necessary to teach the skills involved in roller derby.
Competes fiercely for wins
Does not have a win-at-all-costs approach
Communicating with the coach
Encourage your child to speak.
If the coach is abusive YOU must intervene.
Emowering experience
Life lessons about dealing with people
Talk in private
During a game or practice is not a good time
Six Ways to build the a great relationship with the coach
1. Recognize the coach's commitment
2. Fill the coach's emotional tank
3. Don't instruct during a game or practice
4. Make early, positive contact with the coach
5. Don't put the player in the middle
6. Observe a cooling off period
If you are upset, wait at least 24 hours.
Emotions get in the way of making good decisions
.
This gives you time to think about what exactly you want to say,

if anything.

By signing below I hereby agree that:
I will not force my child to participate
I will promote the emotional and physical well being of the skates ahead of any personal desires I may have for my player to win.
I will inform the coach of any physical disability, injury, or illness that may affect the safety of my player or the safety of others.
I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, skater, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
I will encourage my player to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without restoring to hostility or violence.
I will encourage my player to treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the rink, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed time and place.
I will encourage a safe sports environment for my player that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol.
I am refraining from coaching my player or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of my team.
We take a "fierce and friendly" attitude into competition
