The Chaotic World of Youth Sports — Vol 43 🎉

iSport360_ChaoticWorldYouthSportsAs a sports parent and coach, I know how complicated youth sports can be at times. So I’d like to share some helpful articles that shed light on the challenges we face… and some humorous ones that might even give us an opportunity to laugh at ourselves. Thanks for reading and please share this newsletter with your social networks.

Being a youth sports parent gives me a bit of license to poke fun at some of the crazy things that we do and say on the sidelines of our kids’ games….after all that is one of the reasons we write this newsletter.  But James Corden and Kevin James are taking it to a whole new level. Especially after a holiday weekend filled with soccer tournaments, baseball tournaments and softball tournaments, please tell me they are not poking fun at YOU in this video! Click here to watch the video.

Our friend in the UK Gordon MacLelland shares insight on parents’ sideline behavior.

Every weekend all over the world millions of parents, children and coaches set off for their weekly sporting ritual ‘Match Day’. Many will follow the same process each week and will never question their routine or behaviour. Many of these parents and coaches are well intentioned, trying to support their child and their team through match situations totally unaware of the damage they may be doing by overly involving themselves before and after but crucially during the game itself.
