Tips For Parents.....

Our goal is to equip you with information to help you be a Positive, Praying and Persevering Parent. Here is how you can help your children deal with today’s “Pillars of Pressure”.

Today’s Pillar of Pressure: Playing Time…

How much did you play today? You should have played more… We many times as parents put so much value on playing time that it can become the focal point of the sport and how your child athlete values themselves and their sports experience. A parent once said this, right in front of their son, to my brother coaching 7th grade Junior High School basketball, “I drove all the way across town for an hour in heavy traffic and my son only played 2 minutes, what a waste of time, what is wrong with you coach.” My brother said the athlete’s shoulders and head immediately went down.

Tip… What if the parent would have said… “Coach thank you so much as it was so good to see my son play. I drove all the way across town just to get here to see him.”

For the athlete who seeks more playing time, the book The High School Sports Parent says for the athlete only to approach the coach and ask. “Coach, I’d really like to play more. Do you have any suggestions for things I can do to be able to play more?”

Kevin Eastman NBA Personal Skills Trainer says, “players who question their playing time should first question their quality of practice time.”

Encourage your child to Be a Competitor for Christ… “I am a Christian first and last. I am created in the likeness of God Almighty to bring Him glory. I am a member of Team Jesus Christ. I wear the colors of the cross… I give my all – all of the time. I do not give up. I do not give in. I do not give out. I am the Lord’s warrior – a competitor by conviction and a disciple of determination. I am confident beyond reason because my confidence lies in Christ. The results of my efforts must result in His glory.” Search ‘Competitors Creed’ for the full version.

Leadership with God Wrestling

Saturday & Sunday we had Nathan Tomasello OSU NCAA Champ, Tervel Dlagnev 2x Olympian and OSU’s Kyle Snyder Olympic Gold Medalist sharing their faith and wrestling skills to over 35 wrestlers. Percell Gaskins former NFL player and NCAA High Jump Champion and Seminarian Frank Brown motivated the wrestlers with a strong Word. We are blessed to have Coach Ryan and the young men of God who give back like they do. The Camp Theme was Rise based on Joshua 1:9… “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of goodcourage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
