Recent Conflicts Highlight Role of Kidsports Ombuds

The CBS affiliate in Eugene, OR recently featured the new partnership between Competition Not Conflict, a University of Oregon Law School Graduate program, and local youth sports organization Kidsports to provide conflict resolution for participants, parents, coaches, fans and referees. The local news on KVAL 13 referenced recent misbehavior by coaches during youth to explain the need for the new program. Kidsports Ombuds Carly Bynelson provided a short soundbite about teaching coaches to deescalate conflict. (Youtube.)
