Non Perfect Parent and Non Perfect Coach Series

Being a parent  is tough. Being a parent of a child or children in a national pathway can be even tougher.

That’s why Cricket Wales, Welsh Gymnastics, Welsh Athletics, Hockey Wales and Welsh Netball have teamed up to provide the ‘Non Perfect Parent’ series for 2020-21, in addition to a separate coach development series! The programme will be once again led by the highly acclaimed Richard Shorter and will be delivered virtually given the current landscape. Richard has a long list of accomplished organisations he has worked with ranging from Manchester United, England Rugby, the ECB, England Hockey, Saracens, Millfield School, Newcastle Falcons, the BBC and Somerset Cricket

Sport Wales Athlete and Participant Experience Lead Cath Shearer said,

“Parents and carers play a critical role in an athlete’s life and take on many different roles. As such, not only do they need to consider how to best support their child, but also how they can support themselves. The Non Perfect Parent series gives parents the opportunity to consider how they can best do this in addition to connecting with other parents in the same situation, and all done in an engaging way. I would thoroughly recommend engaging in these workshops, and it is brilliant to see the five sports proactively engaging in this initiative together.”
