Interesting read on playing year round...

Parents fear missing out, clubs fear players going elsewhere to spend their money, coaches fear losing the best players, players fear telling the adults they just want to be a kid...

Stop fearing anything and get real about why you do youth sports. It is not for scholarships, it is not to make varsity, it is not to get a shoe contract. We are conveying the WRONG values with they way it is set up now.

"Parents believe that if they don’t get their kids into the “system” as early as possible then their kid will miss out."

Miss out on what? We played sports as kids just to play.

Lackluster charitable giving in Loudoun County prompts new campaign | LoudounTimes.com

We should all make it a goal to help others this year. Loudoun gives significantly less than those in surrounding counties, yet we have so much more...why is that?

Interesting read on single-sport focus...

Results of a new Univ. of Wisconsin study: “Athletes who specialized in one sport were twice as likely to report previously sustaining a lower-extremity injury while participating in sports (46%) than athletes who did not specialize (24%). In addition, specialized athletes sustained 60 percent more new lower-extremity injuries during the study than athletes who did not specialize.” Do yoga, martial arts, tumbling, parkour, and/or work with a trainer, anything to build all around athleticism. http://bit.ly/2jNSeYb

Jordan Spieth’s Multi-Sport Path to Golf Stardom

On June 21, 2015, at the ripe old age of 21, Jordan Spieth become just the sixth golfer in history to win both The Masters and The US Open in the same year, joining some pretty illustrious company such as Woods, Nicklaus, Palmer and Hogan. He must have played only golf growing up to become this good, this fast, right? Think again. This article first appeared on the Titleist Performance Institute’s blog and is reprinted with permission.

Jordan Spieth is an immense talent. To succeed on the PGA TOUR at such a young age, you have to have a certain measure of natural ability. Add a relentless drive, level head and physical prowess, and you’ve got a chance to play golf at a very high level.

But there is more to Jordan’s success than the work he has done as a golfer. In many ways, the work he did as a quarterback, pitcher and point guard laid the foundation for a successful career. This multi-sport development is the embodiment of the model that we preach at TPI. Develop the athlete first, then the golfer.

It won’t guarantee success on TOUR, but it will help your child maximize their physical potential and overall enjoyment of the game.
