Reforming Sports Before the Clock Runs Out: One Man's Journey Through Our Runaway Sports Culture
How do you feel about the sad state of youth, amateur, high school, and collegiate sports in our country? Are you disturbed that our sports culture may be failing our young people at every step of their development? Have you come to the point where you think something needs to be done in order to bring sports back to their original purpose? Based on his experiences in Upstate New York as a father of two athletes, a college professor, a coach, and a sports administrator, Bruce Svare examines the failings of our present sports culture. Reforming Sports Before the Clock Runs Out is both an expose on what ails our sports culture as well as a call for corrective action by all segments of our society. Focusing on an action plan, Bruce Svare boldly advances proposals that will counteract the dark side of sports, restore them to some level of balance in our culture, and return our sports landscape to its proper place in our lives.
