Running a youth sports program is a huge job. Parent volunteers handle almost everything there is to do (although sometimes coaches may earn a paycheck). If your child wants to play sports, you will almost surely be asked—or required—to take on some volunteer tasks. Buying out your volunteer hours may be an option, but completing them is a way to save money on youth sports. Youth sports provide a great opportunity for you as a parent to spend time with your child.

Whether you help out by coaching, driving a carpool, being a great sideline cheerleader, or organizing snack schedules, the sports experience can be a blessing for. Without volunteers the youth sports world would come to a screeching halt! That’s because the majority of youth sport programs in the United States rely on volunteers – usually parents – to serve as youth coaches, or to hold other roles, like volunteer administrators or officials.

The $15 billion youth sports industry in the United States is a big commitment of both time and money for parents and their children. The result is more pressure to perform and less fun for youth. We as parents and as a youth-sports culture are failing our children in a huge way: Our kids don’t enjoy their sports experiences.

They don’t gain the many benefits of sports.

  • Coaches are allways hardest on their own kids if they have one on the team. I know because I did it. My dad pointed it out to me and it ended real quick.

  • Was a soccer referee for 7 years in québec, Canada. I started when i was 12 years old (i was only referring 7 years old soccer games) and i had a coach that was yelling at me at my face because i made a call that he didn’t like. Cursing, insulting me and telling me to go to hell because i call and legit hand ball. The coach was screaming at me, a 12 years old, while he was probably around 40-45. And god that i’ve seen alot from the coach and parents during those 7 years.

  • @KSyverson That is awful! I put these clips together for a class project but you hit the nail right on the head, parents can definitely ruin the game for children!

  • Having coached swimming, baseball, basketball and soccer after my own career as a scholarship D1 athlete I can say, parents are without a doubt, the problem. Believing their children, at a youth sports level thinking they are D1 and pro athletes is driving them. I would love to continue coaching, but parents who want to control their own children’s chances control the local youth sports.

  • This will get worse with the entitled millennial snowflakes becoming parents and passing their entitlement lifestyle on to their snowflake kids.

  • My dad grounded me and gave me Navy level punishment because I didnt hit a ball in baseball he also proceeded to threaten me with a fight and wanted me to square up all when I was 11 years old

  • how about teaching kids that it’s not weather you win or lose, its that fact that you tried….life is like that, some time you win some times you lose, a true champion get’s up and tries again……..if you teach your child, if you don’t win you’re a looser, that child will end up doing drugs, put in jail, or even end up killing himself….

  • Shameful! My daughter played tennis in high school and college. She played the USTA circuit and they didn’t put up with this nonsense. One dad was banned for pushing his daughter against a chain linked fence.
