Don’t Be A Helicopter Parent

5 out of 5 psychologists believe that it is better for parents to be involved with their children than to not be involved.  Actually, I made that statistic up, but I am pretty confident those stats are accurate. There is however, a line that parents should try not to cross in their children’s everyday lives and in their athletic careers. That line separates a parent from being a supportive role model or being known as a “Helicopter Parent”.

Sports Image® Welcomes New Franchise in Missouri

Dayton, OH – September 2015 – Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, has awarded a Sports Marketing Franchise to Ms. Angie Howard in the Sedalia, MO area. Sports Image® now has local ownership in 11 different states to help schools and organizations increase their revenue streams and get new equipment as the struggle for funding their athletic departments continues.

“To me, the most exciting part of this new adventure is the ability to use my experience and passion to give back to area schools and organizations while helping out businesses at the same time,” said Ms. Howard. “I am looking very forward to meeting new leaders in our schools and businesses, as well as working with friends and business partners that I have gained throughout my years as the DECA Advisor for Sedalia School District #200 and on the marketing team at Inter-State Studio & Publishing.”

Since 2002, Sports Image® has helped schools and organizations obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs as budgets continue to dry up nationwide. The program has zero cost to the schools and organizations. In addition, Sports Image® also focuses on Event Management and runs one of the most recognized high school basketball events in the nation. Through Sports Image’s 5 different revenue opportunities’ and by leveraging existing relationships, they have given over $1,000,000 in cash and over $15,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.

“With her obvious passion in helping the youth and her marketing expertise, we are very fortunate and excited to Angie as part of our team,” stated Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “She is very creative and energetic which will make for a great addition to Sports Image® and our mission to help schools and other grassroots organizations.”

“Nothing is more important to the future of a community than the youth so I am fortunate to now be part of a company that, not only recognizes, but celebrates our young people, and works to support programs that will benefit everyone in the community,” stated Ms. Howard.

“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports. We’ve been helping schools, clubs, community Parks and Recs and other youth organizations offset budget constraints for over 10 years. In late 2009 we franchised our organization to put vested business owners on the ground floor in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman. “We now have franchisees across the nation helping individual schools and organizations achieve their goals.”

The Race to Nowhere In Youth Sports

“My 4th grader tried to play basketball and soccer last year,” a mom recently told me as we sat around the dinner table after one of my speaking engagements. “It was a nightmare. My son kept getting yelled at by both coaches as we left one game early to race to a game in the other sport. He hated it.”

“I know,” said another. “My 10 year old daughter’s soccer coach told her she had to pick one sport, and start doing additional private training on the side, or he would give away her spot on the team.”
