I speak to Dr Camilla Knight in this week’s episode. Camilla is a professor at Swansea University specialising in sport psychology, particularly in youth sport. Her particular area of interest is around parent involvement in sport.
Camilla completed her BSc and MSc at Loughborough University, and her PhD at the University of Alberta in Canada. She is also the lead of the Welsh Research Advisory and Evaluation group for the Child Protection in Sport Unit, a member of the Welsh Safeguarding in Sport Strategy group, and the Youth Sport lead for the Welsh Institute of Performance Science.
We speak about parents in sport: the challenges they face; helping coaches understand their perspective; and simple ways that coaches can help to create a parent-positive environment.
