Did you know...?
1) 20 million youth participate in sports every year?
2) 70% of youth will drop out of sports before middle school?
3) And, the average family spends $350 per month on youth sports activities?
WOW... let that soak in for a second...
When I hear those stats the first thing that comes to my mind is, that's A LOT of kids lol, and kids REALLY like to play sports. They want to be active.
Then, when you hear 70% drop out BEFORE middle school!? When I hear that, it breaks my heart. That's too young for a child's dreams to get shattered.
Parents want nothing more than for their children to become the best version of themselves and have the best experience possible while doing it. Amiright!?
But, for some reason there's a big disconnect here. If so many of our youth want to play sports, but drop out so young they must not be getting the best experience, the best environment, the best quality of coaching, the best chance of learning possible.
Yet, at the same time parents are willing to do whatever it takes to give their children the best chance of all of the above. So how do we bridge that gap?
Maybe a better question, how do we expose parents and coaches to the proper guidance and step-by-step action plans so they can give their children the best chance at unlocking their true sports potential?
What if I said I know the answer?
