Coaches and Parents - Must Watch This
If you are serious about helping youth athletes turn into healthy adults from an emotional, psychological, and physical standpoint, you need to watch this video.
Here are some important messages from the video…
40 million play youth sports – 70% quit by 13 years old.
For reasons that kids play sports, winning does not even make the top 10.
Kids quit because they’re tired of getting yelled at.
Kids quit because they’re afraid to make mistakes.
Kids quit because of an emphasis on winning which leads to a lack of playing time.
In “competitive” youth sports, it’s not the kids who compete harder, it’s the adults.
Sports are supposed to be about kids playing, having fun, learning, making friendships, and learning how to solve problems on their own.
Players should be rewarded for hustle, hard work, and being a good teammate.
