Bob Bigelow will be speaking at the Worcester JCC Thursday, November 12, on the very timely subject of age-appropriate youth basketball coaching and adult involvement in organized youth sports. This forum is sponsored by the Worcester JCC and District Attorney, Joseph D. Early.

Bob Bigelow is one of the foremost lecturers in the country regarding the needs of children in youth sports, and using common-sense approaches to meet those needs. www.bob-bigelow.com

Bob is a former NBA first round draft choice and four-year player. He played collegiately at the University of Pennsylvania for Hall of Fame Coach Chuck Daly. He has devoted several thousand hours researching and lecturing about organized youth sports and its effects on children - and adults. Since 1993, he has conducted over 800 talks throughout the country.

This talk is educational, challenging, motivational and humorous. “The best talk I’ve heard on any subject,” said one listener.

“I recommend to anyone who deals with the youth of America to spend one hour with Bob Bigelow,” said another. You are guaranteed to leave with a better understanding of what children really want and need from their sports activities.

Bob has also written a book, Just Let the Kids Play (Health Communications, Inc.), that describes organized youth sports’ major systemic problems and offers many reforms for better changes. This book is being distributed throughout North America .

Bob’s mission to put the youth back into youth sports has received widespread media attention - Sports Illustrated, the Boston Globe, the New York Times, WEEI-AM Radio (Boston), the Philadelphia Inquirer, New England Sports Network (NESN), WFAN-AM Radio (New York City), and Toronto Sun.

As an adult involved in youth sports, ask yourself two questions; “Why do my kids play?” and “What are my motivations for being involved, or not?” Whether you are satisfied or uncomfortable with your answers, please attend this thought-provoking forum. It delivers the crucial message that adults involved in your sports must hear.

These programs are FREE and OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY. Please register for Coaches Clinic with Bob Berman.
