Recommended Parent Viewing: "Changing the Game in Youth Sports" TED Talk

 Please watch this 14 minute TED Talk video titled "Changing the Game:  A Parent's Guide to Raising Happy, High-Performing Athletes & Giving Youth Sports Back to Our Kids"

Some key takeaways:

    • The single greatest effect on performance is an athlete’s state of mind
    • Youth sports used to be about children competing against other children; now it is often adults competing against other adults through their children
    • Children play sports because it is fun; winning comes in way down the list
    • Children quit sports when they don’t get to play, and when winning becomes more important than enjoyment
    • 90% of children would rather play on a losing team than sit the bench on a winning team
    • Competition is important, but being competitive comes from putting the needs and priorities of our children first
    • We can all start changing youth sports for the better by learning five simple words (watch to learn what they are)

I hope you will take the time to watch the video and if you enjoy it, please share it. Share it with families that have children in youth sports. Share it with coaches, schools and organizations that are struggling to serve the needs and priorities of our kids in a youth sports world that sometimes does not allow our children to “Play” anymore. Share it with like minded people so that we all realize that we are the silent majority, and that youth sports can and will change. We have the power to change it the right way, and make it about our players first.
