Who knows! Our staff have been coaching little ones for many years and our experience shows that new athletes surprise their own parents!
Remember that you have just brought them to a brand new environment, there are new sounds, new people, new outfits and we can’t expect them to just jump on into the class and follow their coaches’ instructions right away. They haven’t even been introduced to the formalities of big school yet.
We remind parents that it is normal for your child to be shy and not want to participate in the first couple of lessons despite how loud and confident they are at home.
Some children may watch a few lessons before joining the group. We might think they aren’t doing anything by watching, but they are thinking, processing it all and analysing the activities.
Your child could just walk straight in and be ready to learn. As we said, “Who knows!” We take those baby steps with you to help develop your child’s confidence and social skills.
