Hello Neighbor | Shooting Hoops with Mike Joson

Last week I met up with Mike Joson, the CEO and founder of Young Sports in Wayne.  Mike shared some thoughts on youth sports and played a little ball with some of the most absolutely adorable athletes ever...


When I was growing up on the Main Line in the 80's, I enjoyed following the great Philly sports teams with my dad. As a kid playing sports I enjoyed being part of a team thru a season, the comradery and the working together to reach goals. As a Dad with kids I love spending as much time as I can with them. 

I am always surprised that I have been fortunate to work in an environment that is all about fun! I love the range of creativity you can pursue as an entrepreneur. I hate the amount of screen time I feel the younger generation is getting consumed by more and more. I find inspiration in seeing children finding enjoyment and success in a program I created, Young Sports. I believe that coaching on the field should always lead to a positive rewarding experience for all involved and that teaching is a great responsibility.
Someday I would love to expand Young Sports into other towns.

Yesterday I was playing tag with my 5 and 7 year old boys at a playground. Tomorrow I look forward to many more simple moments thru life with them!
