Don Hooton: Making A Difference In The Fight Against Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs

Two years ago, in recognition of April as Youth Sports Safety Month, MomsTeam asked 30 experts to write a blog answering two questions: first, how or why did they get into their field, and second, how have they made a difference in the life of a youth athlete in the past year.  

Today, we are honored to hear the story of Don Hooton, Sr. of the Taylor Hooton Foundation, which is working to educate America's youth and adult influencers about the dangers of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs.

"The Smartest Team": Staking Out The Sensible Middle In The Polarized Debate About Football

It has been an exciting week for those of us who worked so hard over the past two years to produce "The Smartest Team: Making High School Football Safer.

After kicking off with our premiere on Oklahoma Educational Television (OETA - PBS) in August, and with stations in North Carolina and Colorado having aired the documentary in September, the beginning of October marks the first full week of broadcasts on PBS stations in more than ten states. 

The buzz about the PBS documentary, "The Smartest Team," has been overwhelmingly positive, but some appear to be working overtime, on Twitter, through a whisper campaign, and via other back-channel means, to cripple MomsTEAM's ability to get its message out. Brooke de Lench explains.

The release of MomsTEAM's high school football documentary, "The Smartest Team," is the culmination of everything we have learned over the last 13 years as the pioneer in youth sports concussion education, and 13 months working with a high school football community and a team of experts to implement a concussion risk management program we call the Six Pillars.

June is Sports Dads Month: MomsTEAM So Declares!


Are you a dad with kids in sports? If so, you may be feeling a little left out lately.  Not only did MomsTEAM celebrate May as Sports Moms Month, but Proctor and Gamble also launched their "Thank You Mom" campaign last month, with no companion campaign for dads.

We kept getting asked, would MomsTEAM give men equal time by designating June as Sports Dads Month, especially since we have so many male experts, bloggers and visitors? June Is Sports Dads Month

The answer is a resounding YES!

May was Sports Moms Month. What about June? No surprise: it's time to officially announce that MomsTEAM has designated June as Sports Dads Month. We so declare!
