AUTHOR SAYS WOMEN SHOULD RUN YOUTH SPORTS


COLUMBUS, OH - May 12, 2003 - Fifteen varsity players and two coaches
were suspended Wednesday from the Massapequa High School baseball team
in Long Island after the district learned the players made a late-
night journey to a Florida strip club during a spring break trip,
officials said. Sports councilor and "The Parent's Playbook" (July
2002) author Christopher Stankovich, Ph.D. says, "It's time we delute
some of the testosterone and empower women to get MORE involved in
youth sports."

"In an activity where male coaches drive kids to physical breakdowns
and dads kill each other over games, we desperately need the balancing
influence of women," Stankovich says.

Dr. Stankovich is available for national interviews and can detail:

- How women have a better attitude toward sports than men - playing
games for enjoyment and exercise, rather than a testosterone-driven
need to win
- 10 female traits that today's sports could use such as anti-
violence, compassion, and fairness
- The myths and realities of youth sports
- How all parents can help their children reach peak performance on
and off the field
- Top 10 tips for parents with children in sports
- The sports parent test: Dr. Stankovich asks 15 questions that help
determine if you're an encouraging, discouraging, aiding, or
sabotaging your kids at sports, and analogously, in their life goals

A book that is long overdue, The Parent's Playbook is a comprehensive
and interactive manual designed to address nearly every critical issue
faced by parents and coaches of children involved in youth sports. The
book gives parents and coaches the tools they need to create a fun and
enriching sporting environment, develop essential communications
skills, and help children achieve peak-performance in both sports and
life. Legendary Coach and Football Hall of Famer, Chuck Klausling,
says it's "A must-have book for parents."

Dr. Stankovich is the founder of Champion Athletic Consulting, a sport
psychology/athletic counseling center in Columbus, Ohio. He has
appeared on ABC's "World News Tonight" and FamilyNet's "At home-
Live!", and has been interviewed for USA Today, San Francisco
Chronicle, New York Post, ESPN, and the American Psychological
Association Monitor magazine, among others.
