- Have players volunteer to demonstrate the most basic examples of being active and not being active.
- Have players define being active in life.
- Explain why they should try new sports and live actively.
- The Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) explains that one of the toughest issues facing youth sports today is pressure on players and their parents to have children specialize in a single sport before they are ready and to play that sport year-round. Ironically, while many youth programs pursue early specialization, telling parents it is necessary so that their children do not fall behind in chasing any scholarship opportunities, most coaches who do the actual recruiting prefer multi-sport athletes. Athletes who play multiple sports tend to be more well-rounded as players and people due to their variety of experiences and are less susceptible to overuse injuries.
