One Sport Athlete
There is much debate about the idea of specializing in one sport. As youth athletics gets more competitive kids are choosing to specialize in one sport to "make" the top teams. But what are we really doing, and why?
Youth sports has become a multi billion dollar business. There is no other way to look at it. As the industry grows and parents throw money into the system the message has changed. But what is this really doing to the athletes in the system? Sure. There are those that become elite athletes, but do you have to specialize in one sport to do so?
