Youth sports are a $20 billion dollar business filled with challenges in so many areas. Reality is STILL there is an EPIDEMIC of overuse injuries both physically and mentally. Lots of pressure from and on parents, coaches and young athletes themselves. We’re all too familiar with over zealous parents, coaches and sports clubs. OVERKILL is rampant!My goal and role in “Hey Sports Parents-The Sports Doctor’s In” is to act as The Dr. QB- Initially consulting with parents, coaches & athletes to develop a plan, regardless of age or level, answer questions and reference and refer to various team members for instituting and following up on whatever challenges, plans & goals we all have.
