For the last eight years, Dan Doyle, founder and executive director of the Institute for International Sport, and parenting expert Deborah Doermann Burch have researched The Encyclopedia of Sports Parenting. The Encyclopedia offers prescriptive advice on virtually every issue that confront parents of young athletes of all ages. The research has encompassed an extensive array of surveys with a wide variety of individuals and groups, including present and former athletes; parents and grandparents; non-athletes - and a special survey conducted with 500 highly successful individuals on their views of sport. In his capacity as Distinguished Lecturer for the NCAA Foundation, Doyle has interacted with thousands of student-athletes at the nearly 100 schools at which he has spoken over the last eight years. Subjects include detailed chapters on issues such as Playing for a Demanding Coach, The Unparalleled Value of Team, and Should My Child Play on a Travel Team? The text has been reviewed by over 60 distinguished individuals, all of whom have experience in either sports parenting or education
