Is your family involved in youth sports or plan to be? If so, don't miss this educational, challenging, motivational, and humorous talk on how to keep your youth sports involvement in perspective while enriching your children's experiences. Bob Bigelow will educate and guide parents on the benefits and costs of youth sports involvement and their children's needs, wants, and capabilities in sports.

Bob Bigelow is one of the foremost lecturers in the country regarding the needs of children in youth sports and advocates for common-sense approaches to meet those needs. Bob is a former NBA first-round draft choice and professional player and played collegiately at the University of Pennsylvania for Hall-of-Fame Coach Chuck Daly. Bob has devoted several thousand hours researching and lecturing about organized youth sports and its effects on children - and adults. Since 1993, he has conducted over 600 talks throughout the country.

As an adult involved in youth sports, ask yourself two questions: "Why do my kids play?" and "What are my motivations for being involved, or not?" Whether you are satisfied or uncomfortable with your answers, please attend this thought-provoking forum. It delivers crucial messages that adults involved in youth sports must hear.

This program is designed for the parents of K-12 children.
