As a Mum of 2 boys who LOVE Soccer (Football) I know the importance of regular practise under the guidance of great coaches. They also have “Study Gym” after school where they can ask questions and get more practise examples for Mathematics concepts and they have adult and student mentors at school. Outside of school they have swim squad coaches and at gym they have group PT sessions. The kids have so many people helping them achieve their goals. On holidays they go to specialized camps to perfect their skills and of course they have homework to help them perfect school concepts. Add Uncles, Aunties and the whole community around them and we see massive resources to help them improve. The kids have both stated that they want to play Football for Australia. With that goal loudly stated to all who will listen, the people around them have stepped up to play, train, coach and guide them in all areas of their lives so they can be the best they can be. It is wonderful to watch the community support.
So why is it as adults we forget that all the field experts can help us get where we need to go faster than trial and error by ourselves.
