Live Like Sam is Commited to Bringing Character-Based Education to Youth Athletics
We strongly believe that while we teach young athletes to be the best physically and mentally in sport, there’s still something essential missing in how we prepare them for a life of competition and service. Live Like Sam believes more can be done to teach our young athletes about character and values.
SO, WE SET OUT TO CHANGE THE YOUTH SPORT LANDSCAPE.
Live Like Sam is actively creating fun and interactive character-based education that provides athletes — and their parents — with the life-long tools they need to develop into responsible, grateful and community-minded

Dr. Dorsch and Dr. Vierimaa have extensive experience researching the intersectionality of sport and positive development in youth, as well as the role coaches and parents play in creating developmentally appropriate sport settings.
