Great tool for parents of any youth sport

My boys play hockey not basketball. The information is relatable and helpful for any youth sport. We are just entering the world of serious training and what it takes for college recruitment. I feel like a first time parent all over again. It’s great to have insight and ideas to bring back to my boys to help us navigate the next step for young athletes.
