John O'Sullivan - Changing the Game Project

John O’Sullivan is the author of the book “Every Moment Matters – How The World’s Best Coaches Inspire Their Athletes and Build Championship Teams”  John’s book is without question one of the most influential books I have ever read on coaching.  It doesn’t matter what age or skill level you are coaching, or even what sport, you can take the ideas and concepts John presents in this book and become a better coach that makes a bigger impact on with your team and on your athletes both on and off the court.

John O’Sullivan started the Changing the Game Project in 2012 after two decades as a soccer player and coach on the youth, high school, college and professional level.  He is the author of the #1 bestselling books Changing the Game: The Parents Guide to Raising Happy, High Performing Athletes, and Giving Youth Sports Back to our Kids and Is it Wise to Specialize? John’s work has been featured in The Huffington Post,, Outside Magazine,, Soccer America and numerous other publications. He is an internationally known speaker for coaches, parents and youth sports organizations, and has spoken for TEDx, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, US Lacrosse, IMG Academy, and at numerous other events throughout the US, Canada, Asia and Europe.

John brings a wealth of practical, hands on knowledge garnered through years of working with players and their families on sport specific development, fitness and nutrition, college recruiting, and most importantly, training high-performing athletes by creating a player-centered environment.
