Let Kids Have The Freedom To Choose

Share This Resource

Tamera Young (@tyoung11) is a WNBA player. In this video, Young tells us that even though her family had a legacy of basketball, the sport was never forced on her. As Young says, "When you don't have someone forcing you to do an activity, it makes it more fun and loving for you." Wanting to play is an important indicator of kids' continued involvement in sports, and allowing them to choose what they do instead of forcing it upon them will set kids up for a longer, happier, relationship with sports.
