Improvement is something that all parents want to see in their kids as part of their youth sports experience.
But while the scoreboard is used as a measuring device in the outcome for individual games, it doesn’t always give an accurate picture of the improvements we can see in our kids. For example, when a player improves his or her passing ability, success is dependent upon their team’s ability to catch.
As the individual players improve, over time, the cumulative results can eventually be seen on the scoreboard, but it is a slow process. As parents, we always need to maintain proper perspective on the outcomes of individual games and remain focused on the process of continued improvement.
