Former NBA Coach Lionel Hollins on Why Sports Specialization is Overrated
Please take a moment to watch this brief video with Lionel Hollins. He is the father of four children, a former NBA Champion, All-Star and All Defensive First Teamer. He was the Head Coach of the Memphis Grizzlies and is now an Assistant Coach for the Los Angeles Lakers.
He firmly believes specialization is overrated and talks throughout the video about how young athletes are heavily pressured by their parents to keep playing a sport they are not passionate about. He believes this pressure burns children out and prohibits them from playing a sport they may actually be better suited for.
Camp Susquehannock takes great pride in developing athleticism and confidence via multi-sport athletic development. If you have any questions or would like to talk about sending your child to Camp Susquehannock please feel free to contact me directly!
