Left out: Financially strapped families paying a price in sports
The Players Tribune
Baseball used to be the sport where all you needed was a stick and a ball. It used to be a way out for poor kids. Now it's a sport that increasingly freezes out kids whose parents don't have the income to finance the travel baseball circuit.

Done with 1-and-done?
Inside Higher Ed
Frustrated by what they see as the National Basketball Association's continued pillaging of underclassmen from their teams, some college basketball conferences warn that colleges will consider making freshmen ineligible to play if the NBA does not change its rule that makes players eligible for the draft at age 19. Freshman ineligibility is often proposed by those interested in reforming college sports as a way to protect academic integrity and help remediate struggling athletes.

If teen athletes feel their parents are living vicariously through them or that sports is the number one priority, dysfunction can arise, says Elijah Brooks, head football coach at DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland. Parents should focus on how teens can build character through sports, says Jim Thompson, founder and CEO of Positive Coaching Alliance, a nonprofit organization working to change the culture of youth sports.

Why has number of women coaches fallen since Title IX?
USA Today
On the courts and fields, women college athletes have made great strides. But in the coaching ranks, something drastically different is happening. Female coaches are losing ground. Ironically, the drop started with a law that was supposed to be positive for women, Title IX. Congress passed the law in 1972 that required gender equity for boys and girls in every educational program that received federal funding, including athletics.

The genetics of being injury-prone
The Atlantic
Injury is a fact of life for most athletes, but some professionals — and some weekend warriors, for that matter — just seem more injury-prone than others. But what is it about their bodies that makes the bones, tendons, and ligaments so much more likely to tear or strain — bad luck, or just poor preparation? A growing body of research suggests another answer: that genetic makeup may play an important role in injury risk.

Georgia's Conley isn't your average student-athlete
ESPN
Chris Conley has a problem today. Actually, Conley has a problem with today. It lasts only 24 hours. There is so much to do. When you're a starting senior flanker on a top-10 team and a college senior, a film director and a screenwriter, a budding athletic administrator and a coffeehouse musician, a Bible-quoting honor student and a superhero-loving, "Star Wars" geek, time is not something you waste. "Madden" can wait.
