New Show Focuses on Young Jocks

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For many children, being picked last in team sports is devastating, but for the kids on the new show, Sports Kids Moms and Dads, “last place” is not in their vocabulary.

For example, there’s a father in Glendale, California, who believes he was “chosen” to be his eight-year-old son’s dad so he could guide the youngster to be an NFL superstar.

Consequently, the boy is already on a strict schedule that includes weekly visits to a chiropractor, step-training and one- on-one practices with semi-pro football players.

There’s also a eight-year-old girl in College Station, Texas, who dreams of strutting her stuff as a cheerleader. The young dancer is not only on two competitive cheer teams but also does individual routines and practices six hours a day.

The regimens that these and other kids on the series go through may seem extreme, but the show’s producer, Amy Introcaso-Davis, insists that the kids’ sports-obsessed parents “love their kids and really want them to succeed.”

Sports Kids Moms and Dads premieres June 1 on Bravo.
