Play it safe – tuck and roll

April 22, 2011

FOR PARENTS OF YOUTH ATHLETES ::

Here’s how you can help prevent major injuries from occurring to your kids throughout their sports career. When they’re young, help them master somersaults, especially from their feet…it teaches them to fall gracefully when playing sports. They safely roll the “force of the fall” away, rather than hitting the ground like a ton of bricks.

Quality Practice

It’s not the time you put in, but what you put into the time that matters. Quality practice — that’s how you improve. You must practice the way you plan on playing during a game. Bring the same intensity, the same enthusiasm. You can’t expect to get better if you just go through the motions. It’s in practice where you develop an instinct for the game. It’s where you develop the habits that lead to success.

Plant the bug that makes them move

April 16, 2011

FOR PARENTS OF YOUTH ATHLETES ::

The more coordination, balance and general strength children develop early on in life, the easier and more fun physical activity becomes. Children don’t walk away from fun! No matter how addicting video games become, they’ll always be drawn to the outdoors for some “physical fun.” If we plant the “bug” that makes them move, we won’t have to bug them to move later.

The Key To Success

Even with all the great sports equipment available today, a combination of practice, hard work, and guts is still what separates the winners from the losers. Good equipment is important but you can’t buy success. Keep in mind that it isn’t the expensive machinery that brings out your best, but the condition of the machine using the equipment.

Teaching complicated footwork to beginners without instruction

April 8, 2011

FOR PARENTS OF YOUTH ATHLETES ::

When starting kids in tennis, have them stand about 15 feet from you. Toss the ball about 10 feet up and let them approach and hit it on any bounce. Youth tennis coaches often make the mistake of feeding balls directly to beginners like pitching baseballs, but this is tennis…they must learn to move to the ball from the get go.

After several repetitions, you’ll begin to notice their timing improve – they’ll move to the ball, set their feet, and step and hit the ball.

Footwork is one of the most important and difficult skills to develop, but it can be accomplished in the beginning if acquired naturally.
