The‌ ‌fun‌ ‌factor. ‌We‌ ‌know‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌one‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌main‌ ‌reasons‌ ‌our‌ ‌kids‌ ‌play‌ ‌sport. And, it’s‌ ‌the‌ ‌reason‌ ‌most‌ ‌of‌ ‌us‌ ‌WANT‌ ‌them‌ ‌to‌ ‌play‌ ‌sport‌. ‌What‌ ‌happens‌ ‌when‌ ‌the‌ ‌conversation‌ ‌and‌ ‌EXPECTATION‌ ‌turns‌ ‌to‌ ‌performance.‌ ‌ In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode‌, ‌we‌ ‌speak‌ ‌with‌ ‌Hamish‌ ‌McMaster,‌ ‌a‌ ‌‌psychologist,‌ ‌behaviour‌ ‌coach,‌ ‌professional‌ ‌trainer,‌ ‌international‌ ‌speaker,‌ ‌published‌ ‌author‌ ‌and‌ ‌founder‌ ‌of‌ ‌Head‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌Game,‌ ‌which‌ ‌provides‌ ‌psychological‌ ‌performance‌ ‌systems‌ ‌for‌ ‌athletes,‌ ‌coaches‌ ‌and‌ ‌parents.‌ ‌Finding‌ ‌the‌ ‌balance‌ ‌between‌ ‌FUN‌ ‌and‌ ‌achieving‌ ‌goals‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌tightrope,‌ ‌even‌ ‌if‌ ‌Hamish‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌keen‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌use‌ ‌of‌ ‌this‌ ‌term,‌ ‌as‌ ‌you’ll‌ ‌hear.‌ Through our chat with Hamish, he talked to us about how adolescent athletes see us, their parents, the window of tolerance, and other mental skills that’ll help you and your sports kids. Plus, a really awesome technique for the car ride home.
