Can a Parent Develop a National Champion?

Imagine you're the parent of a young athlete who is not getting the quality of instruction you expect from their coach. Or, perhaps, you don't think your son or daughter is performing at the level you know they're capable of.

You're fed up, so you go online to search for some training information that will help you put your athletes in a position to succeed and take advantage of their ability. But, you're thinking, "I'm just a parent. I'm not sure I have the background, knowledge or experience to put a safe, effective program in place for my child."

During your search, you come across a program that looks good. It shows numerous success stories. The creator is getting good results. But the program is a little more expensive than you initially expected to spend. And it's got 5 DVDs and 3 hours of information. So you start thinking maybe you just don't know if you can pull it all off.

You read a few emails and articles. You get a bit overwhelmed and, in the end, you decide not to order. Maybe later, you say. Maybe when the price drops (it has) or after you read a few more articles. Or when you have a bit more time.

Your kid goes back to their regular team and coach. But nothing changes. They're still doing the types of workouts you now know aren't going to help. Your kid still isn't getting faster. You can see the frustration on his face, but you still can't bring yourself to take charge of the situation.

The end of the season comes and it's time for the big meets. But you know your child isn't prepared. And so does he. The gun goes off and you know how it's going to turn out. He tries his best, but just doesn't have the speed, strength and technique to place or run a personal best. He walks off the track, head hanging low. You're heartbroken. As you stand watching the award ceremony, you have to witness athletes with inferior ability smile and accept their awards knowing it didn't have to be this way. This isn't the experience you want for your child again this year, is it? After all, *you* can make your athletes faster because you're as intelligent as anyone else. And it's really not as complicated as you think.

If you could go back in time, knowing how the season is going to end for your child, would you still choose to roll the dice on their performance? Or would you take a chance on that proven program?

Because Marcus Harris is a parent who chose not to sit back and watch his son flounder in mediocrity. Instead, he took action and, well, the results say more than I ever could here. Listen below to a voicemail Marcus left earlier this week. And, below it watch the video of his son, Marcus Jr., winning the Youth Division AAU National Championship.

If you think you're 'just a parent' or 'just a youth coach' and you can't get these kind of results, it's time change the way you think:
