Doing It Right: How to Help Your Child Handle High-Pressure Sport - SEMINAR Feb 18, 2019
Submitted By Brady Parr on Wed 11 21, 18
On Family Day, Mon, Feb 18th, 2019 Western University Professor and Sports Psychologist, Alan Edmunds, Ph.D. will visit the East Elgin Community Complex for a two-hour presentation entitled "Doing It Right: How to Help Your Child Handle High-Pressure Sport". This seminar is for parents of athletes involved in competitive sport. What kinds of pressure do these athletes face? How do they react to winning, or not making the team? How do they respond when injured? Can they emotionally get to the next level? Most importantly, how do Mom and Dad help them navigate these issues? This seminar was developed to provide parents with the best approach to helping their child handle high pressure sport.

This presentation will run from 10am to 12pm.  Ticket prices will be as follows:

 

$65/person

$60/person if more than one parent/family member attending

$55/person for groups of 10 or more

 

This is a fantastic rate as some of my research has found similar speaking engagements in the surrounding area to be at a cost of at least $100+ per person, while private sessions often range from $175 to $300/hr.  For this event, parents whose kids are of any age are encouraged to attend, but please note parents with kids 9-10 years and older would be the target audience.  For those who are purchasing tickets you can bring one athlete per ticket purchased to the event free of charge but it is recommended athletes who attend be around the 12+ age.

 

As can be found at his website (www.mentaltoughnesscoaching.com), Alan’s focus is on the development and delivery of effective Mental Toughness Coaching. He has long believed that the ability to be mentally tough - confident, calm and focused under pressure - is the key to success in any sport, so he has built his sports psychology practice around this concept. In the past 15 years, he has helped athletes across a wide range of sports develop focusing abilities as well as an unshakeable belief in themselves. These improved mental abilities have taken many clients to the highest levels of competition.
