Format: Paperback
Loved reading real common sense about youth sports. I am an involved parent who wants my kids to become stronger in their sport, but also to become great team players. This book reminds parents and coaches about the real purpose of sports. It also has given me some insight into what I should be looking for when enrolling my kids in activities and sports.

I bought this book and it is great reading. I am a Martial Arts teacher and have help with AAU sport of various kinds. This book give a different look as a parent and a coach. I thought I was a good coach but after reading this book I have changed a few of my thought. I think it will help my students and make me a better Instructor (Coach). I Highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Jason Kelly has written a guidebook for youth sports coaches and parents that gets right to the heart of what's most important to know. Jason has a way with words. This book is not technical, and it has serious and valuable lessons for any adults who have sincere desire to see the kids in their lives experience sports on their way to experiencing life in the best possible way. Oh, and some of his personal stories and anecdotes are priceless. Jason's wit brings a smile to my face.
