My Turn: Youth Sports

Posted: Updated:

I coached my two son's T-Ball teams when they were growing up. The children really had fun and the parents had no expectations. 

As my boys grew older the sports got more serious and a small minority of overzealous parents took a lot of the fun out of sports. 

There have been numerous incidents of out of control adults at youth sports.  Here in Jackson one young man has lost his life and another is accused of his murder.  All of this over an argument over a basketball game. 

This should be a warning to adults that it is just a game meant for the kids to enjoy.
