What is the Strong Youth Project?
Our mission is to improve the youth sport experience for athletes, parents, and coaches, by providing science-based information concerning best practices in developing the whole youth athlete.
Professor Matthew K. Seeley and his team are working to improve every aspect of the youth sports experience. Most children quit sports by the time they are 12 years old, losing out on valuable life lessons and healthy life-long exercising habits. We want to provide youth athletes, parents, and coaches with science-based information to increase the benefits of youth sports for everyone involved. This is new territory for many parents, athletes, and often even coaches. You might have many questions, from “How can I have better communication with my child?” to “What is a good pregame meal?” We are here to provide answers. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram to get regular answers to questions like these, or explore our website to find answers to your questions.
