Changing the Culture of Youth Sports

Michael Bergeron, President and CEO of Youth Sports of the Americas, joins ABC 33/40 to discuss the issues associated with youth sports.

According to Bergeron, injuries in young athletes are on the rise. Burnout is a major cause of this increase in youth injuries. The pressure and performance demands young athletes experience leads to both psychological and physical burnout. Educating coaches, parents, and athletic associations on ways to make youth sports healthier, safer, and more inclusive for all athletes.

Youth Sports of the Americas was created by Bergeron and Dr. Larry Lemak to advocate for necessary changes to be made in the world of youth sports. Please follow along with YSA and ABC 33/40 as they address ways to help your family create a healthy lifestyle in the new series “Your Winning Ways”.
