WYC 034 Upward Sports President Caz McCaslin talks about Playing with Purpose
Today we welcome Caz McCaslin. Caz is the founder of Upward Sports. Established in 1995, Upward Sports is the world’s largest Christian youth sports provider. Today, approximately half a million players at more than 2,000 churches in 47 states participate in camps, clinics, and leagues through Upward Sports’ Recreation Division. In 2012, Upward Sports created its Performance Division – Upward Stars – aimed at young athletes wanting to further develop their skills and participate in a higher level of competition. Within the first year, approximately 900 athletes competed on Upward Stars teams. Caz played multiple sports growing up, coached his own daughters as they grew up – he is married and has 3 grown daughters.
The first huge idea I took from this interview was in the 2nd quarter – where Caz shares the 360 progression on how to develop and teach children. The 2nd huge idea was in the 3rd quarter where he shares the value of discipline. I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
