There are a lot of challenges to bringing up a young athlete; why not draw on the experience of our team to see how you can start off on the right foot? Here at Raising A Champion, we take a close look at the culture and sports awareness of the family surrounding an athlete, as the family unit is incredibly important in influencing them. Our aim is to improve sports commitment, ensuring that all plans put in place are adhered to, increasing the likelihood that your budding athlete is able to compete at an elite level.
It is absolutely vital that an athlete is coached at all levels. If they’re not disciplined at home, it’s very difficult to ensure they remain on track when attending competitive swimming competitions. This is why we sit down with parents and discuss their athlete’s current lifestyle, and look at how we can begin to build a culture of commitment and hard work.
To ensure complete focus over all areas of their lives, athletes must ensure every aspect goes under observation. For example, sleeping patterns and nutrition plans can be very strict, but utilised properly are able to provide a real competitive edge. At Raising A Champion, we make very good use of our expertise to advise families and sports people on how to stick to plans put in place, and how beneficial they are when put into practice.
