Travis Dorsch

Dr. Travis Dorsch will speak to the impact of parent involvement in organized youth sport, drawing on personal and academic understanding of family relationships and parent-child interaction in this ubiquitous context. Salient questions will be addressed, such as: How much is too much to spend on my kids’ sports? What should I say to my kids from the sidelines at their events? When is it too early to sign them up for the travel team? Am I that parent? Dr. Dorsch will also share the evidence-based strategies he employs with sport leagues, administrators, and parents to foster more developmentally appropriate youth sport contexts.
