Welcome to School over Sports – the blog about academics and youth sports.
In the United States, youth culture is geared towards being the ‘best’ and number one in all aspects of life, obsessive business, sports involvement and self focus. This blog aims to:
1. Provide support and practical advice for parents and educators to create an environment for healthy, educated young people, that prepares our youth for independence, life long learning and personal fulfillment
2. Explore the unrealistic expectations that American culture, colleges, clubs and parents impose on young athletes to chase the ‘scholarship’ dream
3. Shed light on programs and institutions that might not always have the best interest of youth athletes at heart
