SIX BENEFITS OF SENDING YOUR CHILD TO 1-ON-1 TRAINING
1. Extra attention for Your Child: Depending on your child’s age and sport they might be practicing with a youth club team, High School Team, or traveling team. However, these teams often struggle with giving each child the specific attention that they need to truly develop their skills. Signing your child up for sports lessons will get them the attention to detail that they need. A good expert in your sport will critique and break down movements with drills, and fundamentals. If your child often feels lost in practice, or feels like they can’t keep up with their coach then lessons are ideal. They will get instruction that is much slower and focuses on their skills.
2. Practice Makes Perfect....or does it:
I'm sure that each and every one of you have heard the phrase "practice makes perfect" well that's not entirely true. Think about it, if you play basketball and struggle with your 3 pointer what would happen if you spend every day practicing your footwork?.....you guessed it you would have GREAT FEET yet still no 3 pointer. Now that more than likely would never happen, but what does happen is Loving parents want so bad to help their kids with sports that they aren't familiar with. The thing is that this can actually do more damage in your child's development. If your athlete is struggling with something specific then my suggestion would be 1on1 Training. The reason is not only that these types of coaches/instructors specialize in the position that they are teaching, but also every 1on1 training session is designed completely around each athlete being taught. A full practice designed to improve areas within the game that you either struggle with regularly or are just struggling with currently.
In my experience I have taken lessons with multiple kicking coaches and experts. What I have discovered is, the coaches who cultivated a relationship with me are the ones I learned the most from. Tobi Oganla is a great example of a coach who really gets to know the athletes he instructs. I have been
fortunate enough to watch Tobi train way before he became my partner, and watching his positive coaching style while demanding perfection is extremely fun to watch. When he trains an athlete, he thoroughly explains the session, let's the athlete(s) know what he wants out of them, and allows the athletes to tell him want they want out of the session. From the moment they start to the end of the session each athlete consistently pushes themselves to achieve each goal as they are praised for each achievement. The bond that is developed within those 90 minutes is instant and you can see the determination to compete against themselves every second they are drilled.
4. Dedicate Time:
Setting up lessons for your child is a great way to schedule and plan special time for your child to work on their sport. Many athletes have a lot of things happening in their life that take up time. Especially if you are a multi sport athlete. School, homework, school practices, family events, friends… There are always plenty of reasons to push extra practice and work off the table, but when you commit to private sports lessons you are setting times and dates with a third-party. This makes it unlikely that you will push your extra practice aside. Especially when you pay for the services provided
5. No Arguing:
I have seen this over and over again, heck I have lived it! There is nothing more frustrating than arguments between a parent and child over practice, and that is exactly what tend to happen as your athlete gets older. For some reason as athletes and kids age they don’t agree as much with their parents and private practices often tend to lead to a blow out. This is a waste of time, and often facilitates animosity in your child and frustration for you as a parent. Instead of arguing over sports fundamentals, skills and drills, hire a third-party coach for lessons. Athletes often show more respect, and trust an expert for sports. This often eliminates or at least diminishes arguments during practices and get’s you off the hook!
6. Optimized Time:
While I encourage parents to work with their children privately, I also know their time could be better spent. An expert coach will accomplish more, and get better results in a shorter period of time than a parent. I know there are parents who have experience and are considered experts in sports, and this does not apply to you. This is aimed at parents who are attempting to teach with no experience or knowledge in their childs sport of choice
THE NUMBERS: THE TRUTH
THE NUMBERS: THE TRUTH Nearly 8 million are currently competing in high school athletics in the United States. Of that 8 million, only 480,000 will compete at NCAA Schools. We don't pretend to think that we are going to change these numbers because we don't dictate the amount of scholarships that colleges are allotted to give out. What we do offer you is multiple avenues of return upon investment. Studies show that in a Household of a $50,000 income, on average a parent will spend $5,500 on athletics. That's not counting any extra spent outside of 1 team each year. We want you to see the "Return" on that investment because honestly most parents have no idea how to help there child get that athletic scholarship they have spent so much money on. We do! Actually, Its our job!
