Paul Urbano: Team manager, 12U Outlaws 

On being a part of the team:

"I really put everything I've got into being a manager of this team", says Urbano. "The way these kids rise to the challenge every game makes it all worth it. " 

Best sports parenting advice: 

"I think it's important, as a manager and as a parent, to look at the team as a whole. I really want each kid to feel like they matter on the team and push for their success."

Top Picks: 

Adam's Golf Clubs

Chris Kalbfleisch: Assistant Coach, East York Bulldogs

On being a part of the team:

"My goal is to promote development through competition. Sports is a tremendous learning environment, and the best part is watching how the kids learn and grow through doing something they love."

Best sports parenting advice: 

"We emphasize a fun, learning environment where kids can develop their core skills and test themselves against their peers throughout Toronto.  We’ve developed an extended team philosophy that includes a positive and engaged group of parents who are both supportive of their young players and the volunteer coaches."

Top Picks: 

Under Armour High-Performance Athletic wear

Doug Keefer: Coach, Luke's Dream; USA National Team

On Coaching:

"My son Luke and I have spent lots of time preparing him for competitive sports like football, but most importantly preparing him for the next chapter of his life as a teenager. I try to implement life lessons, and strong faith into football, or whatever he does."

Best sports parenting advice: 

"There has to be a drive from the player as well as the parent. Our entire family is very athletic, Luke just had doors open for him that hadn't happened for his siblings. He was the vocal leader and encourager on our football and basketball teams, and chose to further that skill set in a more disciplined way."

Top Picks:
