Playing in youth sports, I learned how to deal with winning and losing plus being on a team. These days young athletes are getting participating trophies so they don’t get their feelings hurt. It bothers me that they are not dealing with success or failure in the right way. I mean they are not learning to deal with losing and disappointment. I don’t have a problem with young kids who are learning to play sports a trophy. However, when the kids getting older they have to learn about how to be a good winner and loser. Learn to play together, following the rules, and how to handle failure is a part of playing youth sports. These days we are living in a culture that doesn’t want to hurt anyone feelings or telling they were great. I guess we have to change the current state of youth sports.
