This week I would like to defer to my friend John O’Sullivan, founder of ChangingTheGameProject.com . You may have seen him in a TedTalk from a few years ago speaking about the importance of youth sports and how to make it a fun experience for kids.
There is a really funny commercial at minute 6:11 that reverses the typical conversation between an overbearing father and a youth athlete. Ever wonder what it would be like if kids showed up on the golf course and talked to their dad the way some dads talk to their kids? Hilarious.
I highly encourage you to sign up for his free youth coaching course . You get a free copy of his book and a few great videos by a guy I know and appreciate.
I would love to know what you thought of the TedTalk or the coaching course. Leave a comment in the comment section below.
