The teenage brain is still developing (and what that means for parents)

So, what does this mean for you as a parent?

Not only is your teenager likely to be emotional, but they will misinterpret your intentions, disregard your logic and fight you over it. – Intense emotional events can make them respond instinctively or reactively without thinking clearly. Adults can help their teens “apply the brakes” when faced with emotional situations until they are mature enough to do it themselves.

Whether you’re the parent who shouts from the bleachers or one who observes quietly from afar, coaches do notice you—and they want to get to know you.

Here are some avoidable mishaps you might endure while watching games, tournaments, or showcases where coaches are present.

“Listen to your parents.”

We’ve been hearing it since the day we were able to comprehend the phrase. Some days are easier than others, but something I’ve learned after years of observation is that, (brace yourself, now!), parents can be pretty smart. It’s a crazy concept – I know!

You need to get the grades to play

The NCAA sets standards for high school athletes based on core courses. “This isn’t PE, or basket weaving, or photography,” Paul says. “English, math, science and history. Every year your high school submits a list of classes to the NCAA, which approves or denies it.”

So you have to take the right courses, and you have to get high enough grades in them in order to qualify to play through the NCAA Eligibility Center.

At Next College Student Athlete, and as a former NCAA coach, I talk with other coaches almost every day on how (and what) they want to hear from potential recruits. Knowing the best response (fundamentals) to each of the following scenarios will take the guesswork out of your recruiting, make it easier to manage your communications, and ultimately will help deliver more college opportunities.
