WHY KIDS QUIT SPORTS?
IT'S A PRETTY WELL KNOWN FACT THAT 70% OF CHILDREN QUIT YOUTH SPORTS BY THE AGE OF 13.
WHAT IS NOT AS WIDELY KNOWN IS THE REASONS WHY THEY QUIT. THE SCARY PART IS THAT MANY OF THE THINGS WELL-INTENTIONED PARENTS AND COACHES DO FOR THEIR ATHLETES ARE THINGS THEY BELIEVE ARE HELPING, BUT ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST CONTRIBUTORS TO THE HIGH DROP OUT RATE!
THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY THEY QUIT IS THAT IT STOPS BEING FUN!
WHAT KIDS WANT ARE:
1. RESPECT AND ENCOURAGEMENT
2. POSITIVE ROLE MODEL
3. CLEAR, CONSISTENT COMMUNICATION
4. KNOWLEDGE OF SPORT
