Hosted by Detrick Wright
Do you recall your sandlot days? The time as a child you just played and enjoyed the game you would spend hours and hours sharing with your friends and classmates?The very game you wanted your mom and dad to sign you up to play, or perhaps you didn't ask to play organized sports activities. An estimated 30 million kids play organized sports yearly in our nation, according to Michigan State University's Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. However, parents/adults impact children's willingness to continue past the age of 13, even when they don't want to play anymore. Learn how to stop sucking the joy out of the game and listen to RIGHT CHOICES this Saturday, August 26, from 11am to 12pm PST.

For nearly two decades I have been involved in sports and fitness coaching, training men, women and children. It is my passion, and desire to live a well-balanced life gained through my personal experiences, as well as the educational steps I took to further my knowledge. The tools I have gained have allowed me the success I have achieved as a personal trainer, and a youth coach. Now, I seek to expand upon that knowledge and give back to society on a broader scale. Understanding the connections from engagement in a physical lifestyle drives the desire to continue participation regardless of how old we are.
I hold a Master of Arts in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Sports Management as well as a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in Biology. My background and certifications include Functional Movement Screen (FMS), International Youth Coach Association (IYCA), experience as a USAA Weight lifting Club Coach, a personal trainer with the American Council on Exercise, an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and a United States Air Force Veteran.
