Give your children a head start on the field and off with The Hometown All Stars books

It all starts with a bedtime story!

As a coach, I see kids showing up at their first practice not knowing what home plate is. They don’t even know which direction to run. The Hometown All Stars series helps children learn beginning sports skills with real-life coaching techniques, combined with an educational and FUN storyline. The books encourage kids to get out of the house and get moving, giving them (and their parents) the tools to do so with confidence. Besides the obvious benefits of physical activity, The Hometown All Stars series includes important concepts, like sportsmanship, leadership, playing by the rules, motivation, winning and losing, teamwork, and strategy, helping to re-enforce many important life lessons.

What Focusing on Action Means

What is the purpose of youth sports? This may seem like an easy question to answer, but wrapped up inside of it, there are a whole host of misconceptions and ideas that must be unraveled to get to an answer. Is the purpose of youth sports to encourage physical activity? There’s a strong correlation to involvement in sports and lifelong exercise habits that promote a healthy lifestyle. There is no doubt that finding enjoyable sports and activities increase the probability that children will grow into healthy adults.
