I recently binge watched Netflix's new docu-series Coach Snoop. My first impressions? Amazing show. Extremely entertaining. Very well executed. I laughed. I cried (a lot). At times I wanted to jump up and chest bump the tv! Coach Snoop is a no holds barred look into youth football from every perspective. From the lovable players to the devoted coaches to parents trying to do their best, everyone gets to tell their side of the story.

Coach Snoop explains that the goal of th...

When I was in elementary school, life was very different. Photos were captured on a roll of Kodak film and had to be professionally developed to be viewed.  Videos were recorded with a video camera and that footage was confined to a tape, that could only be viewed on VCR. Content used to have a limited scope. 

Things have changed. We now live in a world of instant access and infinte sharing.

According to a recent poll, 22% of teenagers log on to their favorite social media site more than 10 times a day,...

There were 1.6 seconds left in the 2nd half. The score was 17-18. They inbounded the ball to my son and he catches it, pivots around misses the shot that could've won the game.  The buzzer sounds and time seemed to slow down as the opposing team cheers in celebration. My child droppe...

They can also be uhhh...just aiiight. Every camp scenario is different, so here are some questions to ask the camp director to help you make an informed decision.

1. Find opportunities to praise mental triumphs as well as physical feats. "You looked disappointed when you missed the layup. It was an easy shot. But I love how you picked yourself back up and got back tough on defense! Way to keep your head in the game!"

2. Set goals together. Give rewards when the goal is accomplished. Simple, I know. But it's great practice for children start writing goals down. 

3. After the game, ask your child to self-audit and identify areas of improvem...
