Description

In the last few decades, adults have staged a hostile takeover of sports for kids. Today, youth sports have never been more closely supervised by adults - or more dangerous. The quest to turn children into tomorrow's superstars has led to adults pushing them beyond physical and emotional limits, sometimes with tragic consequences. Until It Hurts offers an analysis of how youth sports evolved into its current problematic state of being, gives heartbreaking examples of the extent to which some children and their families are harmed by the youth sports culture, and opens up a discussion of how positive change can be made.
