Some people wait their whole life to meet their favorite athlete…….I raised mine.
I am blessed to be the mother of a highly competitive D1 athlete who insisted her child try all sports before dedicating himself to the year-round commitment of basketball.
His father and I (both former athletes) did our best to guide our son through the ups and downs of competitive athletics. We tried to raise a son of good character and academic achievement, while navigating AAU sports, player rankings, the NCAA recruitment process, choosing a coach, choosing an agent, and preparing for the future of life after competitive sports. After all that, I sent my son out into the world of top-ranked college athletics, praying for good mentors, good coaches, good teachers, and good teammates. Then I became a college basketball mom and fan!
As a Sideline Sports Mom, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many parents of athletes. I’ve learned many lessons and gained valuable information that I want to share with you.
While I write a guidebook for parents raising athletes, I invite you to ask questions and share experiences on my website and facebook page.
Hope to hear from you soon!
