Today I'm excited to share my sideline with Valeri Garcia, a soccer mom and softball coach from Sacramento, CA who offered awesome insight on the topic of dealing with the pressure to succeed as an athlete and sports mom.

Listen to Valeri talk about how she learned how to create and navigate the boundaries set in place by the demanding youth sports lifestyle, and the advice she gives to sports moms in similar situations in today’s episode.

Sideline Takeaways:

  • Creating boundaries and values that your family can thrive off of is crucial

  • Give your athlete's a say, work with them and allow them to lead the conversation
