Do you know the facts about youth sports?
Youth sports is big business. It is so huge that we can only guess at how large it has grown. I’ve seen estimates of over 21 million all the way to 35 million for kids ages 5-18.
You may not even care about the numbers because you are so consumed with your child, his season, her team, the coach, playing time, running the snack bar, or just making it to your kids game.
But I think there’s value to taking a look at the numbers; they can help us see the bigger picture of youth sports and its effect on our kids.
The number of 35 million may sound good but what are the facts behind that number? There’s always more to the story than what meets the eye and I think these facts are pretty telling. Take a look at the list I posted on Coachup: 15 Eye-Opening Facts About Youth Sports.
Don’t waste another minute! The next season of youth sports is upon you.
