Why I am Here....

I have been coaching youth sports for years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science with a specializing in Sports Management and a Master's Degree in Sports Management, studying the issue for a long time. More importantly, my personal experiences have led me to find the motivation to begin to speak about the things I think are WRONG with youth sports today. I am also hopeful to find others that share my views and are interested in REPAIRING YOUTH SPORTS programs around the country.

This blog will likely be controversial due to the views I hold of our youth sports programs. Change is needed before we lose an entire generation of children who will not have an opportunity to benefit from the life lessons that participation in sports has taught for so many years. This is a beginning that will hopefully provoke a new thought process for many who have simply accepted the current direction of our youth sports programs.

Lets get to work....spark debate....change attitudes....and impact kids!

  1. Glad you've decided to share your thoughts. We can't all hold the same views about youth sports but through conversation we can begin to see in-roads to making a difference.
