  • It’s imperative that parents and coaches focus on effective and positive ways to support kids in youth sports to keep them in the game. This Ted Talk by John O’Sullivan, author of Changing The Game details what has gone wrong in youth sports and what parents and coaches can do to turn it around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXw0XGOVQvw&t=18s
  • We love the How To Coach Kids site, co-created by the U.S. Olympic Committee and Nike and inspired by The Aspen Institute Project Play. It has tons of free resources and courses on how to coach kids of different ages, genders, abilities, and sports in an effective and positive manner. https://howtocoachkids.org/
  • A vitally important life skill we are focused on at All Kids Play is racial awareness. We believe racial awareness requires an understanding of perspective-taking. This video produced by the RISE organization is a great resource for athletes, parents and coaches. https://youtu.be/tqz7UcCgbLA
