“Brilliant parenting is one of the ‘rocks’ of a successful development environment”

Millfield’s Director of Sport, Dr Scott Drawer, spoke to parents at the Manchester United Football Club Academy Conference at Old Trafford on Sunday about the role parenting plays in a child’s success.


Dr Drawer shared experiences and stories from his high level, diverse sporting background in Olympic and Paralympic sport with UK Sport, England Rugby and Team Ineos (previously Team Sky), and his role in developing sport at Millfield.


He spoke about the importance of parents in a player’s support team saying: “Brilliant parenting is one of the ‘rocks’ of any development environment. We cannot underestimate the role that parents play in developing the right behaviours and skills in young people, to aid personal success through sport or whatever career they choose to follow in life.
