Publisher's Summary

The modern day youth sports environment has taken the enjoyment out of athletics for our children. Currently, 70% of kids drop out of organized sports by the age of 13, which has given rise to a generation of overweight, unhealthy young adults. There is a solution. John O'Sullivan shares the secrets of the coaches and parents who have not only raised elite athletes, but have done so by creating an environment that promotes positive core values and teaches life lessons instead of focusing on wins and losses, scholarships, and professional aspirations. Changing the Game gives adults a new paradigm and a game plan for raising happy, high performing children, and provides a national call to action to return youth sports to our kids.

5 star book

This book was excellent! I have a very competitive hard working hockey player. He is also good at baseball, football, chess, and school. Most things come easier to him than his friends at this point in his life. He tried out for a very good hockey team this spring and was the last kid cut. His confidence was high going into that tryout and leaving that experience his confidence took a complete nosedive. Listening to this audiobook has helped me understand his situation better and has given me tips on how to boost his confidence to get him believing in himself again. I also coach my son's winter hockey team. A lot of good insight from the coaching side of things in this audiobook as well. This audiobook describes a lot of situations other youth sport families have gone through and gives a lot of great info on how to deal with different situations. This audiobook also lays the groundwork for how kids/parents/coaches need to communicate, act, etc. This book should help you as a parent or coach alleviate some of your frustrations. Must read for all parents and coaches!
