“You’re a lot more than the sport you play. You’re a human being too, and sometimes that gets lost.” - Nick Buonocore
For a lot of families, their traditional view of sports has changed. What was once a tool for exercise, discipline, and fun is now perceived as a vehicle to college scholarships. The mindsets of athletes, and sports parents, have shifted as a result.
With us today is Nick Buonocore, a former professional athlete and the founder of Reformed Sports Parent, a collective of former coaches and athletes with the mission of providing “information, expertise, and first-hand insight to support responsible decision-making and thoughtful planning for the well-rounded personal development of young athletes.”
Join us as we discuss Nick’s athletic history, parenting, and what it means to be a reformed sports parent.
