Coach Tony's Corner - "Message to Parents - Encourage Your Children to Play Multiple Sports, Especially at a Young Age"

One of the hottest issues in youth sports today is if and when a child should specialize in a specific sport.  Often when I visit one of the area schools to speak with coaches and athletic directors, the conversation tends to gravitate to this very topic.  Sure, there are still plenty of high school athletes who play multiple sports, but the percentage of student athletes who play two or three sports at the middle school, JV and varsity level has decreased since a generation ago.  In 2016 at Northside Youth Organization, we had over 4,400 registrants and 2,300 families in our youth athletic program in the sports of girls’ basketball, boys’ basketball, baseball, cheer, football, and fast-pitch softball.  Most of our kids, especially the young ones, participate in at least two sports, and many will even play three sports in our program.  When I speak to parents at the park, most of them have one goal for their child: the opportunity to play a sport at the varsity level at one of our area schools.  However, some parents inform me that they and their son/daughter have a goal to earn an athletic scholarship.
