Sports parenting forum set for Jan. 11

Youth sports may be mostly fun and games but the more serious side of these activities will be explored during “Sports Parenting” on Jan. 11 — the Fathers’ Forum’s first session of the new year.

The event will focus on a parent’s role in helping kids get the most out of playing sports.

Rick Wolff will serve as speaker for the event. Mr. Wolff is a nationally recognized expert in the field of sports psychology and sports parenting. He hosts Rick Wolff’s The Sports Edge radio show on CBS New York’s WFAN, which is heard every Sunday morning in the area from 8 to 9 a.m.

He has also written and lectured widely on the psychological pressures that accompany America’s passion for sports. Visit Mr. Wolff’s website for more background information at

Topics to be discussed at the forum include what percentage of young athletes will go on to play at the next level; should your child play multiple sports, or focus on one; what do you want your child to get out of playing sports; what behaviors are you exhibiting as a sports parent and what kids get out of sports at different ages.

Coffee starts 8 a.m.; speaker begins at 8:15 and ends at 9:30 a.m. For more information, visit
