Youth sports needs MORE WOMEN coaching girls. Which is not, in any way, shape or form, to suggest or insinuate that co-ed and boys teams (at the recreational and travel levels) do not sorely need more female coaches too: THEY DO.
Female athletes should not be trained like their male counterparts. Their workouts should focus on improving range-of-motion and strengthening specific muscle groups—like glutes and hamstrings—during pre-season. What’s more, keeping up with such training throughout the regular season can dramatically reduce the risk of ACL injuries.

I love seeing my child involved in individual activities, but I don’t want to raise an antisocial child. I want my kid to learn to be a good team player. Should I be concerned that he seems more oriented toward individual sports?
From the moment they are born, we guide our children along life’s wondrous, rocky path, shepherding them lovingly through the vulnerable early stages of their development. We help them navigate daily physical and emotional challenges and nurture and harbor them as they gradually gather the strength and skills to function on their own.
