If you could help kids stay in sports with a simple social media post, would you?
Today some 70% of U.S. children quit sports by age 13, often due to parental pressure. Once they’re done, they miss out on all the important life lessons and health benefits that sports have to offer.
We get it – parents just want their kids to do well. Turns out the best way for that to happen is counterintuitive: Studies show that kids enjoy sports more, play longer, and even perform better when their parents relax and let youth sports be their kids’ thing.
That’s why, thanks to a grant from the Daniels Fund, Positive Coaching Alliance-Colorado is spreading word about a movement of parents who are brave enough to back off so their kids will stay in the game. Your help in making sure parents get the message through our fun new campaign can have a positive impact on the youth we serve.
PCA-Colorado is the local Chapter of the national non-profit Positive Coaching Alliance, which develops Better Athletes, Better People through youth and high school sports. Positive Coaching Alliance's #DareToChill campaign shows parents the benefits of letting youth sports be their kids' thing so that youth coaches, athletes and their parents, guardians and mentors can have a positive, character-building experience.
