If your youth basketball association is interested in making youth basketball a better experience in your community, contact BasketCases Author Derek Wolden and invite him to speak at your next association board meeting or during the preseason parents meeting.

Derek will talk about why the new book BasketCases: How Youth Basketball Parents Can Lower Their Blood Pressure and Keep Their Sanity is a must-read for all youth basketball parents and coaches.

To help tip-off our 2010-11 youth basketball season, the EPBBA (Eden Prairie Boys Basketball Association) sponsored an event featuring Derek Wolden. We purchased his book, "BasketCases: How Youth Basketball Parents Can Lower Their Blood Pressure and Keep Their Sanity" for every parent who attended. 

Derek has a direct and engaging speaking style; and the presentation was enjoyed by the 80-plus youth basketball parents who attended. Derek’s book is an excellent guide for all of us involved in youth basketball (parents, coaches, and refs). We even purchased books for our high school-age referees who work our younger grade in-house games. 

Overall, having Derek speak to our association, and providing books for as many of our members as possible has been a very positive experience. One we know will pay us back many times over for both this season and beyond. Thanks Derek!
