Background

Christo Parsons, the founder and owner of Parsons Inc. (founded 2019), has a very unique but effective coaching style which we refer to as the ” Parsons Inc.”  way. This encompasses a way of coaching any skill based on encouraging mistakes and improving rather than looking to train in a robotic and repetitive manner. “We want to eradicate the fear of failure in the youth of today”. -C Parsons B.Ed(FET).

Parsons Inc. is a indoor training fascility that offers various activities to kids/adults. Comfortably situated in the Waterkloof Corner Shopping Centre close to local restaurants and amenities.

  • Professional Cricket-, Soccer-,Hockey-, Baseball and Softball coaching for ages 4  – 19
  • Batting cage for Baseball and Cricket for profesionals, Dads, Amateurs and fun -seekers.
  •  Athletic development sessions for ages 3.5 -19 year olds.
  • Birth day parties and coporate teambuilding

“The Parsons Inc         way” 

Parsons Inc. aims to not only focus on one dimension of a player’s development, but more on holistic skills together with sport specific skills to help a young player become a confident and intelligent individual in a social context as well as on the sports field. 

 

We encourage doing as many of any sport as you can find!

Parsons Inc. was founded to address the gap in the development of the modern youth and we believe that talent is not innate, it is created by doing the right things, making mistakes (failing forward) and constantly improving oneself. And in doing that, improving one’s own general athletic skills to develop and contribute to each individuals’ training journey in a specific sport.

But, it is all about family fun as well, we give the opportunity for the whole family to get busy and play in our indoor facility. So we also act as your back yard.

So come train or just simply play!

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.

Athletic Development Programme

Parsons Inc. sports coaching programmes not only focuses on ball skills development but also the further enhancement of children’s long-term athletic development (LTAD). 

Although playing the sport for fun should be every child’s priority, we have learned over time that self-confidence dwindles when technical and personal skills are lacking in the individual.

The LTAD program is aimed at developing basic athletic skills in children aged 3.5 -12yrs, addressing the needs that are generally not acquired in schools today.

The LTAD program is designed to:

  • Offer fun – in an energetic and focused form
  • Improve agility, balance, coordination and speed
  • Build self-confidence 
  • Develop performance
  • Increase social skills
  • Improve posture
  •  Encourage a healthy body and mind
  •  Bio -mechanical assessment and imrpovement
What is Athletic Development?

 LTAD(Long Term Athletic Development) is a new concept in South Africa, offered to develop the athletic ability of children aged 4-12. Sessions are focused on developmental aspects, thus ensuring that children learn basic abilities prior to learning a sport skill. Abilities such as Balance, Co-ordination, agility, Physical awareness and Speed.(ABC’S)

“Children learn sport specific skills a lot faster when they have the “ABC’s” in place…”

Sports Performance Services

Winning Strategies   

At Parsons Inc. we strive to offer the latest in technology and performance service and making it available to the general public. We have partnered with Dr. J Bester of Winning Strategies,  a registered performance coach who has worked with many international athletes as well as professionals of various sports. Although our focus is basic sport development, it will be naïve to think that sport skills exist solely in the realm of repetition of movements, obviously we also have thoughts and mental processes involved in our daily lives. DR J Bester has developed programs that can assist any individual in developing processes that can help the athlete/person understand performance, reflect on inner workings of their mind and create consistency in performance by developing mental tools that can help progression to more performance driven mental state.

 

Meet the coach

Dr. J Bester

Excellence in Sport is achieved in the mind before it is reached on the field.

It is strange that while we know the truth, we very seldom practice it. We spend more time on the field, in gymnasiums and in strategy meetings watching videos of our opposition than we do running our own brains. For example, you have heard the phrase that cricket is 90% Mental and 10% skill, yet we spend most of our time developing the skills only.

Through his company, WINNING STRATEGIES, Dr Johan Bester has been training company executives and professional athletes since 2001. He has been studying the field of mind performance coaching since 1996 under various international mind coaches and hast vast experience in helping people unlock their full potential.
