The Strong Youth Project
Why create the Strong Youth Project?
Dr. Matt Seeley gained inspiration for the Strong Youth Project while watching all of his five children participate in youth sports. As a coach, parent, and scientist of Exercise Sciences, Dr. Seeley has a unique perspective on youth sports. He is a strong advocate for the many positive effects of youth sports on young children’s lives and hopes that the Strong Youth Project will help more children reap the lifelong benefits youth sports have to offer. In addition to benefits, he also saw firsthand a few of the problems with youth sports, including rising costs, overuse injuries, early sport specialization, and misinformation from well-intentioned coaches and parents. In an attempt to fix these problems and create a better experience for youth athletes, he created the Strong Youth Project, which aims to deliver scientific-based information to parents and coaches for the overall benefit of the youth athletes.
