Are you a parent or whānau member of a sporty teenage girl? There are some critical things that you should know but are rarely talked about.
This webinar replay is hosted by youth sport experts, Kelly Curr and Kylie Cox.
Kelly and Kylie discuss the four essential topics for raising active teenage daughters:
- The connection between menstruation and physical activity and how it affects young women.
- The importance of proper fueling for active teenage girls.
- Recovery, loading, and rest: what young women need to replenish and perform their best.
- How to have courageous conversations with coaches and sport leaders. We provide practical tips for parents to connect with coaches and sport leaders and advocate effectively for their daughters, especially if you suspect they are overtraining.
