It's summer again and chances are good you're working at top speed. Kids are out of school, so summer sports camps, team tours and rec programs are in full swing, as are everything from tennis tournaments to 5Ks to swim meets. It all adds up to a full schedule for planners.
Our most important responsibility -- to sport, to society as a whole and even to ourselves -- is to keep those athletes coming up through the ranks. Get your own athletes together and offer a free afternoon or morning skill clinic at least once this summer to teach local kids about the sport. Maybe it's volleyball, maybe it's lacrosse or swimming or something else. The point is to get kids active and turn them on to all the fun things sports can offer.
