CWB: Sport Specialization

June 4, 2024 -Hosts Chris, Armond, and Anthony discuss the demise of sport specialization in youth sports. Though mentioned as a $30-$40 million dollar industry, we now know that youth sports market is now valued at over $35 billion, pitting outcomes against process. Pressure over fun. Chris suggests grownups reflect and discuss personal goals with their kids on their youth sport experience to help clarify the journey and merit of playing multiple sports.
