The cover story for the Sept. 4, 2017, print edition of Time magazine is headlined, "How Kids’ Sports Became a $15 Billion Industry.” The article explains: “Across the nation, kids of all skill levels, in virtually every team sport, are getting swept up by a youth-sports economy that increasingly resembles the pros at increasingly early ages." Not only is the financial cost to parents high, but there are also potential health concerns. Time explains: "In a study published in the May issue of American Journal of Sports Medicine, University of Wisconsin researchers found that young athletes who participated in their primary sport for more than eight months in a year were more likely to report overuse injuries.” That study was led by several researchers with ties to the School of Education's Department of Kinesiology.
