Welcome to 
Key Insights Newsletter September Edition!

I have the honor of being the 2018 Chair of the Key Biscayne Chamber of Commerce. I am very passionate about supporting and advocating for our local businesses. We are blessed to live on an Island with world class amenities, restaurants and merchants. 

As a life-long resident and Realtor on Key Biscayne, I love sharing upcoming events and Interesting activities offered around our community for the residents and frequent visitors of our Island  Paradise.

My father, Federico Padovan, moved our family (including grandparents) to Key Biscayne in 1973. I was raised  on the Island and left briefly to earn a BFA degree at NYU. But my heart was always here so I returned to my Island Paradise home where I am raising 4th generation Key Biscayners with my husband Donnie Hall. 

To read more about me, 
I want to sincerely THANK all of you for the wonderful feedback and interest in participating in our Newsletter 
over the  last 2 years.

The Magic, Illusion & Unbelievable Truth of Youth League Sports
Looking at the culture of Youth League Sports and the relationship between adults and children is merely a microcosm of the misunderstanding adults have about what children need. The reasons why parents and coaches are miscommunicating and the impacts of these misunderstandings are exposed in this book. There are valid reasons why we have gotten it wrong for so long. There is layer upon layer of illusions illustrated within these pages that explain why it is we can not see the truth. It is as if a grand Magician is performing the perfect illusion yet the magician turns out to be us and we don't even know it. 

The Magic, Illusion and Unbelievable truth details over 40 assumptions based perceptions, that cause Coaches and Parents to believe they are doing the right and the best thing for children. And the Unbelievable truth that despite the mountain of data, years of science made available to the public that proves that we are not close to doing the right or best by our children, we still due to these illusions, continue to behave in ways that do more harm than help. 

This book details the history of Youth Sports, back to a time when we did do the right and best thing for children, through the period of when we changed our focus and things began to go wrong. It looks at various models used over the past 150 years of youth league sports. And it highlights the ongoing debate between specialization versus diversification. 

We use resources from over 150 sources- research, polls, studies, expert opinions, articles written by the leading experts in child sports interaction. These studies are backed by some of the biggest institutions in the world. From Ivy League schools to the Carnegie Insititute. Michigan State University, George Washington University, and the University of Calgary are merely three of the dozens that have public reports that were used for the making of this book. The Aspen Insititute, the Women's Sports Foundation and a number of US Goverment departments also make up much of the content of this book. This book is NOT opinion based. It is fact-based. And the unbelievable truth is that even with facts, people we still choose to do the wrong thing and even more unbelievable is that they will choose the wrong thing for their children. This shocking almost absurd truth flies in the face of how we would imagine parents behave. As parents, we want the best for our children yet, in general, we seem ill-prepared to be parents and certainly, we are misguided about how to direct our children when it comes to many areas of their life including youth sports. 

The good news is that there are proven effective methods available to us, and we have many examples that go all the way back to the birth of youth sports to guide us. Today there places in the world where massive change has occurred and the results have been magical. A good kind of Magical. 

So come find out what we are doing wrong and how we can do better by our children. Pick up a copy of the Magic, Illusion & Unbelievable Truth of Youth League Sports and help us change our behavior for the better.
