SportExcel launches sport high performance training for parents and young athletes

Imagine training together with your child athlete over Skype and, after only six hours of training, watching your child’s game improve while helping them take their game to the next level.

PRLog - March 20, 2012 - BARRIE, Ontario -- Parents of young athletes are always seeking supplemental training to ensure their children make the cut.  They are sometimes so involved that they think they have to act as manager, coach, agent and psychologist.  

Bob Palmer, High Performance Trainer at SportExcel says, “In extreme cases, I’ve had parents who were so emotionally involved with their kids that the kids rebelled and stopped wanting their parents to come to competitions.  So the parents would hide behind pillars and watch from there.”

As a result, Palmer is launching a new high performance training series called Side-Line Synergy, via Skype that both parents and their young athletes attend together.  Parents learn leadership skills and become what Palmer calls the emotional high performance coach.  And seated right beside them, their young athlete acquires the very same mental skills used by both Palmer’s professional and Olympic athletes.  

“We have one of the few, if not the only, non-psychology system for high performance,” says Palmer.  “Side-Line Synergy teaches young athletes to get in the Zone and have more fun at their game, while playing at a much higher skill level.  And it gives parents a role that is supportive and gets their children stoked and ready to be handed over to the coach.”   Palmer adds that the kids feel empowered when their parents step back and become supportive, rather than pushy.  And parents love it too, and report back that their kids actually take their ear buds out and talk after the game.  

A parent whose son has attended the program, Craig Elliot of Massachusetts, says that before taking SportExcel’s program, “I passively watched him [my son] participate in sports and gave no thought to the impact that I was having.”  Now with his new role of the emotional coach, he adds, “My wife and I now have an active role that we never had before and it makes a considerable difference.”

Palmer developed Side-Line Synergy based on parent/athlete issues that arose at an Olympic development camp he was conducting in Pennsylvania.  It became apparent that there was an enormous gap to be filled in giving both parents and athletes the mental tools to work together as a team.  Since then, his program has reached parents and athletes throughout North America and as far away as India.  

The Side-Line Synergy series is offered by SportExcel with limited availability via Skype.  For additional information or to enroll in the training, contact Bob Palmer at bpalmer@sportexcel.ca or North America Toll-free: 877-967-5747.
