I've played several sports, and coached several sports including females from grades five through college. This DVD seemed to me to be self promotional which concerns me about the extent of a family guiding what should be a play and self discovery exploratory activity done primarily through one's own volition w/it's beneficial learning process. I've seen the rise of grade school tackle football w/age similar cheerleaders & w/catered food trucks for their mostly yelling family members. I've seen the loss of challenges & discovery from what should be kids growing up trying several sports to now guided year around specialization w/personal coaches and Summer camp travels & recruiting by high school coaches. Even televised middle school camps. The shelves stacked w/trophies; the personalized advert clothing are steps in this ego driven material quest. Most concerning is how few end up loving the movement in sport to continue through adulthood, and even more concerning are the accumulated injuries such as micro-tears to cartilage, menisci and ligaments that will affect them later in life.
