Where sports meets community!


We don't get a lot of press, but here is a link to the second page of the HCM Newsletter from the fall of 2018.  It describes our mission, our new winter league, our partnership with Kentucky Ministries, and awards given to HYR in the fall of 2018.

Also, HYR Director Patrick FItzgerald was interviewed by Forward Radio Louisville 106.5 FM WFMP.  The host of the program is HYR parent and U of L Philosophy Professor Avery Kolers, who hosts a regular program on Ethics.  He specifically wanted to ask some questions about an article in the Atlantic that came out in the fall of 2018 called American Mertocracy is Killing Youth Sports.  In the article, it describes the path of youth sports in the US has become increasingly divided where children with means play expensive travel sports, and children below the poverty line are becoming much less likely to play sports.

There was a wonderful piece done on NPR's All Things Considered program on November 21, 2022 about parents yelling at youth soccer games.  It is a 4-minute listen, and it is well worth it.
