Changes made to free throw rules in high school basketball
High School OT
Players in marked lane spaces will be able to move into the lane when the ball is released by the free-throw shooter beginning with the 2014-15 high school basketball season. Previously, players could not release until the ball touched the ring or backboard or until the free throw ended. This change in Rule 9-1-4 was one of four major rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations Basketball Rules Committee at its April 14-16 meeting in Indianapolis.

How parents are ruining youth sports
The Boston Globe
Three out of four American families with school-aged children have at least one playing an organized sport —  a total of about 45 million kids. By age 15, as many as 80 percent of these youngsters have quit, according to the Open Access Journal of Sports Medicine. One reason is the gap between the child's desire to have fun and the misguided notion among some adults that their kids' games are a miniature version of grown-up competitions, where the goal is to win.

Shreveport Times
Officials with two high school sports associations worry a bill passed by the state Senate could prevent high school sports next year. Sen.

Winning isn't all that matters in prep sports
Green Bay Press Gazette
"We want our teams — our kids' high school teams, our alma maters — to win, but the system is rigged so they don't always win. That's bad. It must be those private schools, recruiting the best athletes. Yeah, that's it. That's why we're not winning. We hate not winning, and it's time to do something about it."

That is roughly the logic behind the decision at the statewide meeting of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association in Stevens Point to create a committee to study whether to recommend a "competitive multiplier" for Wisconsin high school sports.

Axe Bat wins converts, but has to overcome baseball traditionalists
NPR
There's an age-old tension between honoring tradition and embracing innovation. A family-owned sporting goods company in suburban Seattle is confronting that tension in the sport of baseball. Baden Sports of Renton is going to market with what it calls a "better" baseball bat. The traditional round-handled baseball bat has been a fixture on sand lots and in stadiums for 150 years. Back when bats were turned out on a lathe, there was good reason for the symmetrical design. But now computer-guided machine tools can churn out any shape you want.

Why you should incorporate kettlebell workouts into your training
STACK
Kettlebell workouts keep gaining in popularity. There are a number of rival kettlebell "schools" out there, and they all try to outdo each other. Similar to the world of martial arts, everyone wants to believe his or her kettlebell method is the first and best, overshadowing all others with its greatness. With all the hype, it's important not to lose sight of the benefits. To further the martial arts analogy — the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
