Youth sports have become a pressure cooker of expectations. Parents scream abuse at players, coaches, and referees. Coaches demand that their teams win, at any cost. Kids practice day and night. They face intense pressure to score, to win, to succeed. But is this the measure of success we want to impress upon our children? In RAISING A TEAM PLAYER, Harry Sheehy answers this question and many more. Offering lessons and wisdom learned from more than seventeen years of working with elementary school children, secondary schoolers and college players. Sheehy encourages parents to get involved in their kids' athletic experiences. He offers advice on how to praise, encourage, inspire, build, temper, support and teach, working with children on everything from setting goals to teaching sportsmanship and humility to building character and a sense of self-worth.
