Tom Farrey on the State of Youth Soccer via the Soccer Parenting Summit

Tom Farrey on the State of Youth Soccer and Sport in America

I am thrilled to be able to bring this interview with Emmy Award winning journalist Tom Farrey to SoccerParenting.com.  Tom’s book, Game On, was a catalyst book I read years ago as my children were getting involved in sport, one that started me down this Soccer Parenting Association journey.  Tom is the Executive Director of the Aspen Institute’s Sport for Society Program – Project Play where they are Reimagining Youth Sports in America.  Tom is a visionary leader, player and play advocate and an extremely important voice when it comes to youth sports.

This interview is a part of the 2016 Soccer Parenting Summit – where I interviewed 21 expert leaders in youth soccer, sport psychology, physical performance, coaching, parenting and nutrition during a 3 day on-line event. Most of the interviews from the 2016 and 2017 Soccer Parenting Summit can be found at the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com. I am making this one interview available to you here on SoccerParenting.com because I believe it forms the foundation of the conversation we need to have as we move to a more positive developmental environment for our children.
