I won't get into much about my past. If you are interested in reading about Keith Van Horn the basketball player, my business interests or my philanthropic work, you can read about them on either my official fan site at www.keithvanhorn.com or on The Keith and Amy Van Horn Charitable Fund site at www.keith-van-horn-philanthropy.com. However, through this blog, I hope that my past as a former professional athlete along with my experiences as a youth sports coach, entrepreneur and father of four children will help people to be better parents, coaches and fans.
I am passionate about youth sports and the life long benefits that youth receive when they participate in them, especially when they have positive and supportive coaches and parents. Currently, I serve as the Founder and Executive Director for Colorado Premier Basketball Club which is the largest youth basketball club in the state of Colorado. We work with over 1,000 youth in the communities we serve. I also serve on the National Advisory Board for the Positive Coaching Alliance. This work gives me numerous opportunities to learn about coaching and parenting and all of the joys and struggles associated with teaching our youth. I come across situations daily that we all can learn from and I want to share those experiences with you.
