Click here to read an outstanding book by Jeff Farris from Sports Esteem called Building All-Star Kids. Parents play a critical role in the success of their child in youth sports. Unfortunately, most parents get it wrong and over 70% of all kids playing organized sports quit by age 13.
Building All-Star Kids’ help parents address this problem by providing insights into how parents can help shape their child’s youth sports experiences so that kids continue playing longer and better. With information covering a wide variety topics, Building All-Star Kids educates parents on how to balance a child’s need to have fun with the need for learning life-lessons and skills.
