About the Author

Kristi Erdal is professor of psychology and chair of the Human Biology and Kinesiology Department at Colorado College.


"In The Adulteration of Children's Sports: Waning Health and Well-Being in the Age of Organized Play, Dr. Kristi Erdal writes in a clear voice and thoughtfully digests the scientific literature on children's sport, raising important questions and offering concrete guidance for parents, coaches, educators, and sport administrators." - Britton W. Brewer, Ph.D, Springfield College -- Britton Brewer, Springfield College
"What an eye-opening book. In The Adulteration of Children's Sports, Dr. Erdal clearly explains the latest research-hers and other scientists'-about how today's intense, competitive, over-organized and `adulterated' approach to children's sports is failing so many of our children and having a rather unfortunate effect on the behavior of parents and coaches too. Helpfully, she also offers practical and scientifically valid suggestions for improving how we recruit, coach and encourage young players. Essential reading for parents, coaches, researchers and, really, anyone involved with children's sports." - Gretchen Reynolds, The New York Times -- Gretchen Reynolds
