Five years ago, John O’Sullivan of Changing the Game project started a movement in our country to give youth sports back to our kids. And since we all want our young athletes to stay active, be healthy, and have fun, I thought this article would be helpful…especially since these Top 5 Reasons Kids Quit Youth Sports are right in front of our face….and all it takes is a minute to ask your kids if they feel the same.
