The Evolution of Youth Sports Burn Out (2016)

This documentary short addresses the troubling trend of burn out in young athletes. By examining the evolution of the youth sports culture from its beginning in 1903 we can see how parents have in many ways improved the children's games. However, when a parent’s involvement unknowingly becomes negative their impact can cause great damage. By understanding the driving force behind these parent’s actions and making changes as a community, we can hopefully improve the youth sports playing environment for future generations, before it’s too late.
