Parents of adolescent athletes play a critical role in their sporting development. This support can be the difference between the athletes' progression or dropout, yet parents are rarely informed of how their behaviour can bring about a positive influence. This study involved educating the parents of elite adolescent athletes on how best to support the sporting development of their children. The impact of the intervention was examined through coach and athlete feedback.
