Sport has in many ways become an all-or-nothing phenomenon.  Many of the benefits of sport and development opportunities youth sport have been known to provide have given way to high competition and winning.  It has created a youth sports culture that leaves little room for the majority of athletes to experience sports success.

A better balance between talent development and winning in sport is needed.  

Building inroads using sports research and early learning innovation, Jelly Bean Sports is creating that balance.  It offers greater value for the sports development process by defining deeper levels of sports success beyond just winning.  

The Jelly Bean Way

The Jelly Bean Way

Jelly Bean Sports educational philosophy is an excellent model for study.  It effectively integrates:

  • an integrated sports process
  • how young children effectively learn
  • children's movement (i.e. managing childhood obesity)
  • sport's role in children's physical activity
