    New Falcons QB Kirk Cousins is our guest in Part 1 from this month's Pure Athlete Live event in front of 1500+ athletes, parents, and coaches in Atlanta.

    Pure Athlete: Mother's Day Special

    Pure Athlete: Mother's Day Special

    On this special Mother's Day episode, Catie Francoeur, Kay Lee, and Kathie Williams join their husbands to share their perspectives on being sports moms. They discuss the roles they play in supporting and encouraging their kids, including helping them maintain a balance between sports and other important aspects of their lives. They also share how they are able to encourage family priorities and even out their husbands' sometimes overly intense and competitive nature.
    There are many versions of sports moms across America; some are super intense on game day and others just want to help their kids enjoy the ride, but in all cases, we want to honor all they do to strengthen their kids, their husbands, and their families. Happy Mother's Day!

    Pure Athlete: Parenting on Game Day

    Pure Athlete: Parenting on Game Day

    It's finally game day and a chance to pay off all of those hard hours of work and practice. A day meant for relaxation and having fun with other parents as we watch our athletes compete oftentimes morphs into something entirely different.
    For those of us who have experienced it, we know there are three major components to game day for parents: before the game, during the game, and after the game. Each of these aspects comes with their own challenges that can be both enjoyable and stressful. There are times we're able to help our young athletes and other times when we're just making it harder for them; so how can we know when we're doing our part?
    Jeff, Britt, and Brad sit down to discuss the best and most challenging parts of being a parent on game day, encouraging parents and athletes to take stock of their own approach while being intentional at making the most of this sacred day in sports.

Informative & Entertaining

As a father of soon to be college athlete who came through the club ball ranks, I relate to this show so much.

I love the insight they bring to each episode and the guests are always top notch. Will continue to be a long time listener as I raise my two young sons in the ever changing world of youth athletics.
