About the Event

Being a parent is tough. Being a parent of a child or children in a national pathway can be even tougher.

That’s why Cricket Wales, Welsh Gymnastics, Welsh Athletics, Hockey Wales and Welsh Netball have teamed up to provide the ‘Non Perfect Parent’ series for 2020-21, in addition to a separate coach development series!

The programme will be once again led by the highly acclaimed Richard Shorter and will be delivered virtually given the current landscape. Richard has a long list of accomplished organisations he has worked with ranging from Manchester United, England Rugby, the ECB, England Hockey, Saracens, Millfield School, Newcastle Falcons, the BBC and Somerset Cricket.

Here's a flavour of some of the benefits for parents, which will inevitably lead to better outcomes for children:
