The Olympian Experience Philosophy

When children have fun, they learn. When children learn, they improve. When children improve, they enjoy success. When children enjoy success, they gain confidence. When children are confident, well… what more would you want as a parent than a child who is thriving as a result of enjoying themselves, learning, improving, succeeding, a child who is gaining confidence in their potential?

Why is the focus at jTOEST first and foremost fun, with everything else second?

When children are comfortable, when they are encouraged to play, to experiment, to have fun, they make incredible gains.  Its when success, results, performance are placed as initial and immediate expectations that problems arise.

The ‘adultification’ of organized youth sport – as in the pursuit of results, times, peak performance & podiums – before all else is ruining sport for children.

Performance – as in healthy performance – arises only as a result of children being encouraged to play, to have fun, to learn how to move, how to control their body, hence the thoughts their brains create.

The Burnout Factor
Late Specialization Is Recommended For Most Sports
