Parent Mental Trainer (PMT)
Introduction to the Parent Mental Trainer Course
Parent Mental Trainer (PMT) was written for MTI by the lead researchers at Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. PMT was created in response to the overwhelming need in the sports industry for parents to work with their child and coaches during the training process.
Parents want what’s best for their child but often are not sure how to make that happen within the sport realm. PMT teaches ideal parent roles, how to be a positive support, and how to control emotions while on the sidelines. For the first time, parents can be on the same page mentally as the coaches and athletes.
The course retails for $99/parent per year, but is included at no cost if teams adopt the CAP program.
