Parenting The Pure Athlete

The world of youth sports has become a challenging and all-consuming journey for many families. In Britt’s book, as a father of a D1 college athlete, he tackles a wide variety of issues and topics common to parents on the youth sports journey, sharing relevant insights, ideas, stories, and wisdom as a roadmap to help other parents navigate the high-level youth sports world in the healthiest way possible.

“Like most parents, I want my kids to be the best they can be, but also to learn valuable lessons and have great experiences in youth sports. This book was an easy read and provided great ideas to help me navigate this journey in a healthy way for our family. I think every sports parent should read it.”
