Creating A High Performing Mindset in Our Kids by John O’Sullivan – Join us for a fascinating talk with John O'Sullivan, author of Changing the Game.
Conventional wisdom holds that youth sports are a positive experience for our children,
yet 70% of children drop out of organized athletics by the age of 13. Youth sports has
become an ultra-competitive, adult centered enterprise that has taken the “play” out of
“Play ball” for far too many kids, but we can change that.
