Parent Resources

At Temiskaming Thunder, we understand that parents play a vital role in their children's athletic journey, and we are dedicated to providing them with valuable parent resources to support their young athletes. Our parent resources encompass a wealth of information, ranging from understanding the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork to practical tips for balancing academics and sports commitments. We offer guidance on how parents can best support their children emotionally and mentally, emphasizing the significance of positive reinforcement and encouragement. Additionally, our resources include information on nutrition and injury prevention, ensuring that parents can help their children maintain a healthy and safe approach to sports participation. We encourage parents to actively engage in their child's athletic experience and be part of our inclusive and supportive sports community. By offering comprehensive parent resources, we aim to strengthen the parent-athlete-coach partnership, creating an environment where our young athletes can flourish and reach their full potential both on and off the field.

On the Temiskaming Thunder website, we have compiled a list of links and references to various internet resources that can serve as valuable tools for athletes, coaches, parents, administrators, and organizations seeking information or support related to sport and mental health. It's important to note that the Temiskaming Thunder organization does not endorse or validate the viewpoints expressed on these external sites, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information they provide. However, we strive to provide a comprehensive collection of resources to cater to the diverse needs of our community.
