Psycho-Social Adaptation to the College Game: Players Start from Home. Now They're Yours, Coach.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Session attendees will understand (1) an overview of psycho-social adaptation in college, (2)  the potential influence of parenting style on player development, (3) Self-Determination Theory of Motivation, (4) How previous authority style and motivation can interact.

The session will include a review of theory and research findings, and an experiential workshop.

Don't know if I'll have survey data from players at that point.  Regardless, I thought it might be instructive for all to use small groups (interaction is good) to 

(1) describe traits and values of well- and poorly-adapted first year players, 

(2) provide ratings of mothers and fathers across Authoritarian, Authoritative, and Permissive parenting styles for Hi- and Lo-Adapted players they have seen.  

(3) Assuming we have enough attendees, provide 2 short role plays on dealing with (a) a recruit and parent(s), and (b) a first year player and parent(s).
