The Athletic Scholarship Myth

La description

Why Year Round Youth Sports Is a Prescription for Failure... Most parents say they want what is best for their child, but often are guilty of pushing their child further and to try harder, even when their child clearly has lost interest or is suffering from an injury - all for the potential of a scholarship that will never come. I encourage you to step back and take a look at the bigger picture and ask yourself if your child is really better off? That is where Dr. Robert Berry's new book, The Athletic Scholarship Myth, comes in. As an orthopedic surgeon also trained in sports medicine, who spent a career taking care of athletes of all ages, shapes, and sizes, Dr. Berry has seen an epidemic of injuries in young athletes over the last several years. He feels it's time for someone to be a champion and to step up for the young athletes-our children-and educate them on what is really going on when they play sports year-round and why we are seeing such a rampant increase in preventable injuries that often have lifelong ramifications. In this book, Dr. Berry encourages you to allow your child to be a kid and enjoy sports, instead of seeing it as a job with the hope of a future scholarship, which statistically will never come. The book educates you on why year-round youth sports are a prescription for failure and why sports specialization is so dangerous.
