“The High School Sports Parent: Developing Triple-Impact Competitors” (90 minutes)
This interactive workshop explores the role of Second-Goal Parents, supporting their children so that they have fun, positive experiences in sports. It examines how parents can help ensure their children’s experience yields healthy, developmental (physical, social, mental) outcomes that will serve them far beyond the playing field.
Parents will come away with knowledge about tools for supporting their child in his/her sports experience. Parents who attend a Parent workshop should be able to:
• Know what is expected of them as a high school sports parent

• Match their behavior as a parent to their goals for their child’s high school sports experience
• Support their children to bounce back from mistakes and setbacks
• Teach their children about the importance of a growth-mindset
• Understand and manage the relationship between the Parent and Coach
Parents who attend this workshop may purchase the book ($5 as supplies last) The High School Sports Parent: Developing Triple-Impact Competitors, a book that has handy tips specific to the challenges facing parents of high school athletes, as well as helping maximize the parent’s relationship with their kids.

Xavier Dillingham selected to MIAA Student Advisory Committee

Over the past three summers the SL athletic department has been sending student-athletes to the New England Student Leadership Conference at Stonehill College.  Mackenzie Springer, Josh O'Neill, Ryne McNeilly have attended and this past summer Emily Skerritt, Brendan Guilderson, and Xavier Dillingham represented Silver Lake.  The MIAA selects its student advisory committee (a yearlong committment) during this conference and I am pleased to announce that our very own Xavier Dillingham was chosen to be a member of the 16 person committee.  I thought you would enjoy this recent article taken from the MIAA Educational Athletics Newsletter:
