The approach to all junior sport, should be about letting the children play, develop and grow, we shouldn't be placing pressure on them to be elite or perform at an un-realistic levels, we really do need to let our youngsters have there child-hood. If we don't it can lead to real problems, and I have experienced it twice as a coach, where young players who I coached, had at some-time during there teenage years eating disorders. In each case the cause was different, but ultimately it was the pressure of needing to do better, to be elite.
Now I can tell you that each of these girls pulled through to the other side, and became stronger, but they should never have been placed in that position in the first place.
So what should we being doing, well like I say, we should be taking the pressure off and letting them just play, have fun and enjoy what they are doing. Let our youngsters in what ever sport it is soak up the experiences, and enjoy the moments that come along.
