Episode notes

For decades, youth sports in the United States have been an avenue for kids of all ages to make friends, be physically active, challenge themselves, and learn skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, and the value of hard work—all of which can provide great stepping stones towards personal growth and achievement later in life. When it comes to mental health, sports can be an immensely positive experience for many participants.
