Learning to be a team player is something all parents and coaches can probably agree on. But it’s pretty evident by all the chaos in the youth sports world that not everyone agrees just how that should look.
Today’s guest is Solomon Alexander from the St. Louis Sports Commission’s Sportsmanship Foundation. Take a minute to check out Solomon’s website at www.sportsmanship.org.
The mission of the St. Louis Foundation is to create more positive environments for kids to plays sports so they will remain active and lead healthier, happier lives. They provide events and activities free to parents, coaches and kids in the St. Louis area. They also encourage sportsmanship by sending out a Sportmanship Brigade which looks for and rewards acts of good sportsmanship.
Solomon also has a program called Sportsmanship Delivered where he travels to schools, youth leagues and other sports organizations to talk to parents, coaches and kids about sportsmanship and character. Solomon and the St. Louis Sports Comission are committed to encouraging parents, athletes, coaches, and fans to be good sports.
Solomon knows all about what it takes to be a good sport, a team player. Take a few minutes to hear what Solomon has to say to parents and coaches. I know you will benefit from his insight!
