Righting What’s Gone Wrong with Youth Sports: The Secret to Keeping Kids in the Game

September 23, 2018 @ 5:00 am - 6:15 am

Sports used to be so good for kids, but today’s youth sports environment — with its increasing focus on developing championship athletes — has ushered in an adult approach to training which features too much, too early, too often and at too high a price. Everywhere, kids are dropping out, sitting out or sidelined with injuries. The key to recovering a healthy approach to youth sports lies in recognizing that growing children are fragile because that’s the nature of all growing things. They need to develop at their own pace to gain their footing in sports and to reach their potential in life. In this presentation, we will look at how a simple and successful approach to training kids for healthy fitness and injury prevention can also communicate a powerful and encouraging message for life. Sports are still good for our kids. We all win when we can keep them in the game.
