Sports consultant Rob Miller will have messages for parents, coaches and players in Biloxi Public Schools when he visits Biloxi Junior High School auditorium this evening at 6:30.
Miller, a Michigan high school and college athlete who went on to become a successful coach and administrator on the high school and collegiate levels, visited Biloxi schools in March to conduct a forum titled “Helping Our School Community Create a Great Athletic Culture,”
Miller’s two messages for this evening:
-- The Role of Parents in Athletics (for parents). A straightforward message from athletes to their parents about how adults can help their athletic performance, create good memories and demonstrate respect from the perspective of young people.
-- Re-defining the Term Athlete: Life Lessons for All Athletes (for athletes, coaches and parents). One of the best opportunities for individual character growth in young people occurs when adults (coaches and parents) clearly identify and support behaviors that are expected, and clearly define and confront behaviors that are not acceptable. This presentation challenges players to become “athletes” as well as how they can individually improve their team.
