Race To Nowhere: Youth Sports

Many of you are familiar with the movie, Race to Nowhere, which details both the psychological and physical toll on our children with a hyper amped approach towards their their education and learning.  John Sullivan addresses these same themes in respect to their recreational activities in a piece entitled, “The Race To Nowhere in Youth Sports.”  I highly recommend reading this article as he pulls no punches in identifying the root causes and the pressures which we as parents frequently succumb.  Very much like the boy on the street who has the courage to yell, “The Emperor has no clothes, this article is a refreshing wake up call to remind all of us that we can take back the pure and fulfilling experiences in our children’s competitive youth sport activities.
