“Where did the fun go?,” asks coach John O’Sullivan. Children no longer simply ‘play’ sports. O’Sullivan introduces us to his “7 C’s of a High Performing Mindset” that help ensure that athletics is a positive and rewarding experience for children. His message is based on information learned from kids, when asked what they want from sports; from experienced coaches and parents, and from the latest science and research about athletic development and parenting.

WELCOME!
