Nick Buonocore started The Reformed Sports Project to provide a platform for coaches and athletes from the highest levels to share their perspective and experiences with parents and kids. What started as a a few interviews and some social media posts with quotes from these athletes and parents has turned into a movement, a podcast, and a social media giant. Nick uses his experiences as a former NCAA National Champion baseball player, his adventures coaching and parenting his own children, and his connections in the sports world to bring wisdom from the highest levels of sport down to your local town league. 

In our chat today, we discuss sports specialization, finding balance, redefining success, and overcoming the “NCAA D1 or bust” mentality that leads to poor sports experiences, and even worse college athletics choices. Nick is thoughtful, engaging, and passionate about his mission as you will hear.
