Ask a group of kids ‘what’s most fun about sports?’ — like George Washington University researchers recently did — and you’ll get lots of answers. Out of the 81 they came up with, ‘winning’ didn’t even make the top 40. But for parents — many of whom run and coach their children’s sports leagues — winning is an important way to groom their kids for college scholarships. Some say the result is an intense, hyper-competitive atmosphere that many kids have no interest in. We talk with experts about why fewer kids are playing sports and whether their parents may be to blame.
