There is a lot of negativity in the world today. Linklete is a place kids and parents can go to be inspired. No matter what level of sports we’ve played or parented, we share many of the same experiences. It’s powerful to read those firsthand accounts, and it’s a reminder of how much we all have in common.
Please share your stories with us by clicking on the Share a Story tab. As a youth athlete or parent of an athlete, you’ve experienced a lot of firsts and a lot of adversity. Linklete is a way to share those experiences and help others through them.

On September 11, 2001 I gained new perspective. I was in Detroit, Michigan when I got a phone call from my wife telling me to turn on the TV. My world stopped. What I saw over the next 4 hours brought me to my knees. One week later, on September 18, 2001, baseball began again. I realized then, while playing in a stadium filled with sports fans, that I needed an outlet, Minnesota needed an outlet, and our country needed an outlet. To some, sports is just playing a game, but I saw something bigger and more powerful that day. I saw an event that connected people.
Today, our youth athletes and parents need that outlet more than ever, but the youth sports conversation has taken a negative turn. There is a lot of positive that happens in youth sports. The more we look for positive the more we see it.
I started Linklete to shift that conversation and to connect youth sports for good. We all have powerful and inspiring stories about the positive and healthy things happening in sports. Linklete is a place to share them, to read them and to connect.
