KEV Talks…Youth Sports

KEV Talks…Youth Sports

In this week’s KEV Talks…Youth Sports I’m sharing my lessons learned from being a parent of youth sports players for over a decade and based on my coaching experience for Soccer, Flag Football, Tackle Football and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) kid’s class.

I believe character. A parent’s character in particular. Is exposed when their child’s sports team is losing.” – Kevin Pannell (That’s me!)

Key points I discuss in KEV Talks…Youth Sports this week include:

For Parents:

  • Let kids be coached
  • Kids carry their own equipment
  • If you want to help, sign up
  • Yelling at kids, coaches and referees doesn’t help

Fellow Coaches:

  • Set the example
  • “What you allow in your presence you promote”
  • Building kids up is primary. Wins are secondary.

I hope parents find this helpful. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a new parent or just getting your kids into organized sports. If you find yourself getting all riled up at the High School Football games (not in a good way), maybe it’s time to take a walk. For my fellow Coaches, Godspeed to you. I know the work can be thankless at times. But if you believe in what you’re doing you’ll change kids’ lives.

Have a plan, stay informed and get involved,

Kevin
