Guest Biography: 

I am the author of 10 books, including Secrets of Successful Coaching, in which I spoke with 50 highly respected professional and collegiate coaches that included Joe Maddon, Karch Kiraly, John Harbaugh, Jenny Boucek, Charlotte Smith and Danny Manning. I oversee the National Alliance for Youth Sports' SportingKid Live website - nays.org/sklive - which features free content that is updated daily. I interview top coaches of all sports to gain their insights on all aspects of working with young athletes. I also speak with current and former athletes who share their journeys through sports and how they handled the highs and lows of competing; and I interview leading experts in sports psychology, performance, mental conditioning, nutrition, strength training, injury prevention, safety and other fields related to youth sports to get their insights on these important areas. All stories I write are shared on our SportingKid Live site as well as through all the NAYS social media platforms and in our weekly and monthly e-newsletters that reach more than 120,000 volunteer coaches, parents and youth sports administrators nationwide, and on U.S. military bases worldwide.

Since 1981 the National Alliance for Youth Sports has been a leading advocate for positive and safe sports for children. NAYS works with more than 3,000 communities nationwide, and with U.S. military bases worldwide, providing a variety of programs and resources for volunteer coaches, parents, youth sports administrators and young athletes. Better sports for kids...better kids for life!
