Welcome to Inside Youth Sports!

Opportunity, knowledge, and fun are the foundation of a great experience in youth sports. Inside Youth Sports examines the many factors that impact this experience - and what parents, coaches, and players can do to better achieve an enjoyable, rewarding outcome. Pragmatic tips, techniques, anecdotes, and examples that help illustrate advocated principles are included.

Inside Youth Sport's primary audience is sport parents (in their various roles) - but articles directed toward players are also included.

Topics are labeled in one of three categories (Coach,Parent,Player) and include information for the respective audience. By clicking an item in the Category list in the left column, you will see all of the articles for that category.

Comments are welcome. Please keep your comments and any included links on-topic. If you take issue with someone's comments, please address their ideas. No character attacks!
