Summary From hypercompetitiveness to pressure to fear of violence to sheer boredom, our kids have good reasons to quit youth sports -- and today they're quitting in record numbers. Fortunately, there is a proven solution to this growing problem. It's called Fair Play.
For more than seven years, the Fair Play model has been integral to the NFL's Youth Development program, used in dozens of communities. And it has dramatically changed the way youth sports are taught and played across the country. Fair Play gives parents and coaches a blueprint for youth sports where everybody plays and nobody quits. Its revolutionary principles * eliminate the scoreboard * get coaches off the sidelines * play boys and girls together * revoke the draft * and incorporate other changes to make sports a healthier, more positive experience that builds young athletes up instead of beating them down. It's an important philosophy, an effective set of techniques, and a new (or sometimes, old) way of playing the game, based on a single guiding principle: It's for the kids.
