District Launches Community Book Read Ahead of Author's Visit


Changing the Game: The Parents Guide to Raising Happy, High-Performing Athletes and Giving Youth Sports Back to Our Kids is a national bestselling book by John O’Sullivan.  In Changing the Game, O’Sullivan draws upon three decades of high-level playing and coaching experience to take us behind the scenes of competitive youth sports and demonstrates how they have changed from being a fun pastime to an ultra-competitive, adult-centered enterprise that is failing our children. He then teaches parents that the secret to raising happy, high performing children begins by helping them attain a positive mindset and an enjoyable youth sports environment. By following seven actionable principles of high performance, parents can give their children a competitive edge, while at the same time making youth sports a positive experience for their family and their community.
