A practical, provocative, and comprehensive guide for parents who want to ensure that their children get the most out of all their sports experiences, The Sports Parenting Edge takes a fresh, resolutely positive approach to a popular subject. Parents and coaches today, claims author Rick Wolff, do not want to be lectured anymore about the problems inherent in youth sports. Rather, they want to learn how to work around the pitfalls of out-of-control parents, how to deal with win-at-all-costs coaches, and in short, how to make certain that their children enjoy sports and have the opportunity to develop their full athletic potential. A must for parents of children from kindergarten age through high school, this book also includes a frank discussion of college recruitment issues. Hardcover. 208 pages.
