Overview

For the last eight years, Dan Doyle,founder and executive director of the Institute for International Sport, and parenting expert Deborah Doermann Burch have researched The Encyclopedia of Sports Parenting. The Encyclopedia offers prescriptive advice on virtually every issue that confront parents of young athletes of all ages. The research has encompassed an extensive array of surveys with a wide variety of individuals and groups, including present and former athletes; parents and grandparents; non-athletes - and a special survey conducted with 500 highly successful individuals on their views of sport. In his capacity as Distinguished Lecturer for the NCAA Foundation, Doyle has interacted with thousands of student-athletes at the nearly 100 schools at which he has spoken over the last eight years.

Subjects include detailed chapters on issues such as "Playing for a Demanding Coach," "The Unparalleled Value of Team," and "Should My Child Play on a Travel Team?" The text has been reviewed by over 60 distinguished individuals, all of whom have experience in either sports parenting or education.

* Senator George Mitchell calls the book, "A remarkable service to us all."
* Mark Murphy, Athletic Director at Northwestern and former captain of the Washington Redskins, says, "Brilliant . . . by far the most comprehensive book that I have ever seen..."

Editorial Reviews

Paul H. Dworkin
““This remarkable text addresses virtually all aspects of youth sports through a unique combination of insightful observations, expert opinions, informational antidotes, and research findings.”
From the Publisher
“This approach is so different from any other sports self-help books and pro athlete autobiographies that it is cathartic, refreshing. Wonderfully written … excellent pointers drawn from the best research. Worth the price of the book for parents bemused by the barrage of materials arriving via all forms of media at their home, in their car, and on their person.” —G. Louis Heath, Ph. D., Sports Literature Association Journal

“Brilliant and serves a real need in the athletics community.”—Mark Murphy, President and CEO of the Green Bay Packers
