009 | Realistic Expectations of Youth Sports

The rise of youth sports in today’s culture is a complex topic. Organized sports provides a different sort of opportunity for young kids. It also comes with a price tag—literal and figurative. In this episode Dr. Brian Bolt and Dr. Chad Carlson focus in on one specific question from a listener regarding expectations of practice for young athletes. They challenge parents to find the source of their child’s passion. Is it the sport itself or the outcomes? And, they walk us through the process of nurturing self-directed play and discipline without pressure, all to encourage us to help our kids fall in love with the activity, not the reward.
