No Fun, No Youth in Youth Sports!

New Study Shows Kid's Choose Fun Over Winning


August 13, 2014


A new study conducted by Dr. Amanda Visek, PhD of George Washington University is going to set the youth sports world on its ear!  The study which has just been published in the Journal of Physical Activity & Health discusses the findngs that may shock some parents, coaches and youth sports admnistrators.  As adults, we think that winning, cool uniforms, travel leagues, hotel stays and trophies are what keep kids interested in youth sports--boy are we wrong! All of these things are part of what kids like, but number one is FUN!


Youth Sports Now talks with Dr. Visek about the study, her FUN maps and the future of youth sports in our country.

Youth Sports Now will guide listeners through the topics that surround the role of youth sports in our society.  The show promises to capture the essence of development through sports and beyond.  From pee wee sports (Age 5) right through to collegiate athletics, the focus is on the athlete and not the score or result of the game.


Our special thanks to our participating sponsors, Tomaino Orthoapedics, McQuaid Jesuit High School and to TJT Sports Photography,- make sure those youth sports memories last a lifetime--keep them forever with TJT Sports Photography!  We also thank the Rochester Red Wings Radio Show as a sponsor--teaching youngsters about community and team sports!


You have a VIP ticket to learning more about youth sports, your child/athlete and their adventure in athletics.  Sports can set the foundation of a person for a lifetime, but it has to be handled with care and compassion.  Today's young athletes may or may not be future Major Leaguers, but they will certianly have a major league impact on our world.
