When your child is sidelined from playing sport through injury, it not only takes a toll on them, it can also weigh heavily on us, as sports parents. Often, coming back from injury is not an easy road. 

This episode is inspired by our own conundrum in having our two kids suffer an injury within days of each other last month. They were desperate to compete. We didn’t know how to handle their return-to-play.

You know what? The whole scenario has really challenged us as sports parents. We’ll put our hands up and say it’s been hard navigating their disappointment, and supporting them to find the best path forward.

So, we called in an expert to help us get some perspective.

You’ll hear from Cameron Ferguson, who’s currently the rehabilitation coach with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles NRL squad, and has previously worked in the AFL with the Gold Coast SUNS.

He’s got extensive experience in return-to-play protocols and structuring programs to get players back on the field. If you’re stuck like us, not knowing where to go from here with your child, this might help.
