Last week Greg Pappas and I discussed How Young is Too Young for youth sports. ┬áWhile that may sound like a simple question it actually covers three different levels of youth sports. ┬áFirst, at what age should you start your child in sports. ┬áSecond is about what age to get involved with competitive team sports. ┬áAnd third we discussed what is the right age to get into travel or club sports. ┬áIf you missed that show, I encourage you to listen to the podcast. ┬áWhile we could do two or three shows to cover all of that material, I do think we hit the basics so that any parent can know what questions to ask for their situation.
Due to a schedule change, my friend Richard Trujillo had to reschedule to next week, this week we will be discussing politics in youth sports. ┬áHow appropriate since today is election day and we will be choosing a new President. ┬áPeople leave rec ball to go to travel ball thinking they are leaving the politics, only to find out that travel and club sports have their own political issues. ┬áThe same is true of high school sports. ┬áHmmm. ┬áI wonder if college athletes have to deal with politics…. ┬áwhat do you think? ┬áYou can respond to this article, you can send me an email, or you can call the show tomorrow at (800)405-6425. ┬áWhat political battle did you or your children face in youth sports? ┬áDid you walk away from the drama, get caught up in the drama, or were you actually the one creating the drama?
