Why Johnny Hates Sports by Fred Engh

Book Description

All across the world an ever-increasing number of children are dropping out of organised sports - football swimming and many more. Not because they do not like to play but because the system they are playing in is failing them. WHY JOHNNY HATES SPORTS is the first book to look at the growing problems inherent in the way we introduce our kids to sport. In this timely book Fred Engh examines the unsettling state of youth sport. He explains how and why many of the original goals of youth sport have been affected by today's win-at-all-costs attitude. He then documents the negative physical and psychological impact that parents coaches and administrators can have on children. Most important he provides a wide variety of proven solutions to each and every one of the problems covered.
