Youth Sports: Blogs That Make the Cut

It's cut time. Yep, time to cut the slow and unmotivated and add in some new energy. The cuts I made today were easy to make because those in question have just not performed well while others have stepped up to be noticed. Of course, I kept my go to solid performers.

I am talking about my blog roll. I had 45 blogs on my blog roll and cut the roster down to 32. If your site got cut, it's time to reevaluate your commitment and your contributions to the youth sports blogosphere. Perhaps this time next year you will be added back again.

Here some of my favorites (CLICK ON THE IMAGES TO GO TO THE SITES)

A blog that makes youth sports parents SMILE.

FeelGoodSportsStories.com There is so much ugliness in youth sports and no one site can erase that ugliness from our minds, but this site makes you believe in the human spirit and the overall goodness of sports. I have been a guest writer for this site several times. My recent story call, Ready to Play:  A True Story about God and Baseball is currently being featured.



A blog that makes youth sports parents LAUGH.

SportsPickle.com - This site is about sports with a humorous twist. It made the list because it often highlights the ridiculousness of youth sports. I wish I could be a guest writer for this humorous site.




A blogs that makes youth sports parents THINK.

AskCoachWolff.com - This blog is constantly refreshed with new content that makes you think about the good, the bad and the ugly of youth sports parenting.



JBMThinks.com- Janis Meredith consistently fills her blog with interesting insights regarding the world of youth sports. Her perspective as a mother of college and soon to be collage athletes and as a wife of a long time coach provide her unique POV.


A blog that MOTIVATES youth sports parents and athletes.

StrongerTeam.com/Blog is written by Alan Stein, an internationally renowned basketball specific strength & conditioning coach. The site is motivational.



A blog that INFORMES youth sports parents.

The LA84 Sportsletter is published by the LA84 Foundation, endowed with Southern California's share of the surplus from the 1984 Olympic Games. The Foundation awards grants to youth sports organizations, initiates its own youth sports programs and manages the world's premier sports library. It's a great site for short little news releases related to youth sports. This site inspires some of my topics.



The Main Point

If you are looking for great content regarding youth sports these sites will provide you with a great foundation.
