In keeping with my purpose of giving young athletes, parents, and coaches valuable information about youth sports, I have planed several interview chats with some highly successful athletes. These competitors have been through it all.

The first interview chat will be with a USA Gymnastics National Champion on June 30th at 7:00pm central time so mark your calendars (announcement below).


Interview Chat with the 2009 Level 10
National Gymnastics Champion
Keeley Kmieciak

Where: The Athlete’s Sports Experience

When: Tuesday June 30th at 7:00pm central time

Come join Keeley and I as we discuss her experience at the USA Gymnastics Championships, life as a gymnast, her future aspirations, and other issues facing high level athletes. It should be an enjoyable evening as you may get a chance to interact with Keeley at the end of our interview. Hope to see you there.

The second interview chat will be in July with a top level ball player from Louisville University’s (Big East Champions and NCAA qualifier), and the third in September with a pitcher from Bradley University who was selected as the 8th round draft pick for the Colorado Rockies major league baseball team.

All have had a wealth of youth sports experiences and are willing to share them with those who are interested.

It is not everyday that you get a chance to hear directly from athletes of this caliber, so please feel free to join us and find out what it’s really all about.

And stay tuned in to my blog to get the actual dates and times for the next two sessions.
