The Parents' Portal

FOR PARENTS OF YOUNG ATHLETES:
Parents who are supporting and coaching our kids, or our kids' teams, have a massive challenge, because sports is a crucible: There is so much growth, insecurity, emotion, and psychological stuff that goes on with kids in the first place, when you add the competitive juices, new hormones, etc., it can get really hairy. This Portal is for us, and by us. If you want to give your input, please email me at greg@ubsports.com. If you want to be our Ambassador for this Portal, please email community@ubsports.com.
