Today there are over 40 million youth playing sports in the United States. More time is spent on the playing fields of America than in the classrooms. Athletes, on the average, are spending more face time with their coaches and sport, than with their teachers and parents. Playing a sport is no longer an extra curricular activity, it is a career! That career can span from kindergarten to a full ride through college and a potential professional run. But even if a youth athlete doesn't make the big leagues, the personal growth and life skills learned on the playing field's of their developmental years are worth the equivalent of any professional career.
