Rianna with Dean Bryan on Anti Asian Racism in sport, Coaching Minority Kids, and Coaches impact

April 15, 2021

On this episode of The Youth Sport Podcast Dean and I discuss his story growing up in a diverse area and then moving to where he was the only minority kid in his school. He discusses how his coaches didn't think there were any racial issues in their program not knowing what Dean's experience was growing up. We discuss how to help a kid overcome adversity, to put in the hard work in order to see the success that comes with it...even if it comes years after the work. Dean now works with kids in Strength and Conditioning and he's helping shape the next generation of amazing athletes and people through his business at "The Grind"

"We want mental wellness, not mental hell-ness!" - Dr. Taylor

This episode on The Youth Sport Podcast was great in so many ways. The reality of becoming an elite athlete and becoming a pro is often lost on misguided parents and coaches. Dr. Jim Taylor has been working with elite athletes, researched and taught Sport Psychology, has created countless resources to help parents and kids along their sport journey, as well speaks publicly to sport groups and schools about how to create the best sport environment for upcoming athletes.

His stories will shake up your reality and also offer some perspective on how we're operating and how we could benefit from taking a step back and re-evaluating our coaching and parenting philosophies.

Dr. Jim Taylor has many free resources to help you along your sport journey which can be found on his website, www.drjimtaylor.com

Rianna with Omar McPherson on racism in sport, being an international athlete, grace and understanding

March 4, 2021

I'd like to thank Omar McPherson for having a serious conversation with me about many things in this chat, but especially, our main topic: racism in sport.

Omar has a really cool story about coming to the United States from Clarendon, Jamaica to pursue his love of soccer and to get an education. Omar played soccer at California University of PA, coached and worked at Cal and now coaches youth soccer in the State of California!

I listened to our conversation a few times after the fact, because each time I did, I picked up on something new that Omar said. I really hope that this episode inspires you to go and have your own conversation about how we can make an impact on youth athletes, and have, as Omar puts it, "exponential" positive change in their environment.
