Why are 7 of 10 kids dropping out of sport?
This week on Krush Performance, we take a serious look at some of the issues facing developmental sport.
First, we look at the dangers of caffeine as a 16 year old high school student, Davis Allen of South Carolina, passes away from heart complication associated with caffeine consumption. He consumed a large Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s Latte, and an energy drink in a two hour period. He had no pre-existing conditions.
Let’s talk to our kids about caffeine, where it comes from, and the issues of consuming too much.
Then, there some major concerns as 7 of 10 kids are dropping out of organized sport by the age of 13.
We are joined by John O’Sullivan, Founder and CEO of the “Changing The Game Project,” to look at the issues they are seeing in developmental sport and to discuss the all important roles of parents and coaches, coaching and coaching development, the top reasons why kids are leaving sports, and more importantly the top reasons why they play in the first place, winning by the way, didn’t even crack the Top Ten!
It’s an important episode of Krush Performance as we dive deep into the issues facing developmental sport right here on Radio Influence.
