The 100-Yard Classroom

Kevin Kush has had tremendous success with his Boys Town football team comprised of youth who have academic, behavior, and emotional problems. Many have never played organized sports.

Competing with Character
Audience: Parents and Coaches involved in youth sports
Let’s put sportsmanship and fun back in youth sports! With over twenty-five years experience as a teacher and coach, Kevin Kush thinks it’s time to create a youth sports environment where character, sportsmanship, and fun are once again priorities. Coach Kush examines the good and the bad going on today on youth playing fields, along the sidelines, and in the stands. He urges us to remember that children look to adults as role models and gives coaches and parents a repertoire of skills to use that demonstrate respect, responsibility, courtesy, and much more to children.
Doors of Opportunity
Audience: Youth grades 7-12
In this presentation Coach Kush cuts right to the chase and lays it on the line like only a coach can! Kevin discusses; the importance of choosing the right friends, how to set goals, overcoming adversity, making decisions big and small, and the importance of respecting everyone. Young people need direction to get through the doors of opportunity in front of them and Coach Kush shows them the way in this energy filled talk.
Playing on God’s Team
Audience: Christians from 9 to 90!
Speaking from the heart, Coach Kevin Kush draws an analogy between playing on a football team and working hard every day to make it on God’s team. Who is your head coach? The Bible is your playbook.
