Parent expectation in kid sport
A major frustration for kids, in sports or in life, is trying to live up to the expectations of adults. At times, youngsters have a strong need for adult approval. If they don't get it, due to unrealistic expectations from adults, it can be a major cause of low self-worth. Since a coach often plays a major role in the life of a youngster, it is important to keep expectations reasonable. A good coach's skill expectations are based on the knowledge that all players in youth sports vary in their development of physical coordination skills, go through plateaus in their skill development, and have growth spurts which can affect their coordination. Levels of motivation for kids in youth sports: - some kids, especially the entry-level youngsters, are playing because their parents enrolled them - many youngsters are playing because it's a social event allowing them to be with their friends - a smaller group of youngsters are playing because they enjoy sports for sports' sake. Kids have lots of pressures growing up today and it seems silly for adults to add more pressure in an area which is supposed to be "fun and games." A common problem is the result of those parents who have unrealistic expectations for their children. They expect their child to be one of the stars of the team. It may be that this is because when they were younger they excelled in sport, or it may be quite the opposite. Often the parent, who was not athletic, pushes the child to excel where they did not. In either case the result is the same, the parent is somehow trying to live or relive their life through their child. Consequently, these parents push their child too much. Rather than allow the child to enjoy the game, they often force the child to do far more practicing than the child desires, and put constant pressure on the child during any contest by the words shouted from the sideline. Another common problem is the result of those parents for whom winning is the most important thing. These parents focus more on winning than on the other values that are a part of sport and competition. These include: the discipline of training, the value of being a part of a team, learning and improving in the skills of the sport, the opportunity to test your skills against a worthy opponent, and the satisfaction of having given your best effort. This should help parent to do much more than survive youth sport. It should enable you to enjoy it to the fullest and help you make it fun and valuable for your child. To do that, first you need to understand your responsibilities as a Sport-Parent: - Encourage your child to play, but do not pressure. - Understand what your child wants from sport and provide a supportive atmosphere for achieving those goals. - Help your child set challenging but realistic performance goals rather than focus only on winning the game. - Help your child understand the valuable lessons sports can teach. - Help your child meet responsibilities and rules of the team and the coach. - Turn your child over to the coach at practices and games. Do not meddle or coach from the sidelines. (Var. - April 6, 2016)

Every practice is divided into three parts:
In the first part, we'll be warming up through the physical exercises suitable to basketball players age group. It will strengthen their muscles and prevent injures that can happen if a player's physical strength is not effectively developed.
In the second part, we’ll focus on repetitive drives, stationary and dynamic dribbling, ball drills that involve team tactics during the game play, and shooting. Players will need to use 100% of their physical strength in order to effectively complete these drills.
In the third part, players will be using their skills and knowledge in a basketball game against their teammates. During this time, players will learn basketball rules, tactics, strategies, team-play, and all other important fragments of the game.
