ABOUT SPORTS
PARENTS UNITED

Our global mission is to celebrate every athlete and support every sports parent.

We asked sports parents to finish this sentence:

I want to be a part of a Youth Sports Culture where…

Here are just a few of the responses:

  • Winning is not the most important thing, respect is!
  • We value the effort of the athlete as much as we do their ability to contribute to the win/loss record.
  • Parents support youth allowing them to enjoy their own experience and become their own advocates.
  • We develop life-long learners because they played a sport they loved when they were young.
  • Parents help kids to progress and strive to be better and, as parents, we strive to be better fans for our kids (rather than just complain about every opportunity our kid doesn’t get.)

And We Asked 250 Youth Athletes to Answer This Question…

What do you love about sports?

Here are just a few of the responses:

  • Loves belonging to a community of other athletes and always trying to better himself.
  • Loves that sports challenge her and gives her a goal to strive for.
  • Loves the friendships she has made. She loves competition and loves learning and pushing her body to new heights.
  • Enjoys the companionship and camaraderie of being on a team.
  • Learning to be able to move her body and accomplish skills.

Parents and athletes want the same things!

So why doesn’t youth sports statics reflect this?

Why are most kids quitting before middle school?

Maybe because somewhere along the way, we forgot the fundamentals. We stopped focusing on the value of the learning curve.

Sports Parents United exists to focus us back on what really matters!
