Navigating the Competitive Culture of Youth Soccer
On November 11th, the Centennials held a parent and coach meeting for our Travel U9/U10s to recap their first Fall season and to introduce a new intiaitve that our club is rolling out to assist our parents and coaches with handling the increasingly competitive landscape of youth sports.
The GC Centennials has invested in the On Frame and The Coaching Revolution interactive books for our U9/U10 teams. These guides, co-created by former UCLA All-American, Olympian and MLS player Patrick Ianni are a helpful tool to help us better understand the motivations for our behaviors as we navigate youth sports with our children.
Though we are only rolling this out to Travel U9/10s for now, if you want to learn more, please check out Patrick Ianni's video message to our U9/10 parents below and his website at www.iannitraining.com. Also feel free to reach out to Centennials board member Jackie Cavallini (email@example.com) who is spearheading this initiative for the Centennials.
