Youth Development (w/Don Showalter‪)‬ Play It Forward

    • Non-Profit

The accomplished and distinguished Don Showalter (@dshow23) joins Chinny and Emmett of the Play it Forward Podcast, a social justice podcast presented by PeacePlayers, to discuss the myriad aspects of coaching basketball at the youth level, from it’s positive benefits to mental and physical health for boys and girls, to some great tips for coaches and parents on what really matters when coaching youth. Don also reflects on the changes he’s seen in the youth coaching realm as young people, and coaches, have become more comfortable talking about their mental health challenges. This conversation could have gone on for hours but we’ve trimmed it down to the essentials, so we hope you like it, and we encourage you to take notes!
