Matt Young, FSQ Consulting - Lasso Safe contributing partner and credit advisor. Topic: Give Sport Back To The Kids. Ted X Grandview Heights, 2022.  In Give Sport Back To The Kids, Matt Young explains how parents, coaches and administrators have contributed to the 70% attrition rate among the 40 million North American kids who register to play a sport each year.
