TeamSnap Podcast host, Emily Cohen, dreams of living in a world where kids can enjoy sports for the pleasure of a well-hit ball, a faster time, or a corner goal – one without helicopter parents managing their every move. As a youth sports blogger, she’s been honored to write for TeamSnap for over half a decade, and now she’s taking her wit and wisdom to the airwaves with her new podcast that tackles issues relating to youth sports.

As a Cal grad and long-time Bay Area resident, Emily Cohen knows a thing or two about sports. With two very active teenage athletes, she is well-versed in bleacher-sitting and the conduct of sports parents – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some topics close to her heart include sideline etiquette, injury prevention, and good old-fashioned sportsmanship.

When she’s not on the tennis court, at a game, or managing her kids’ teams, she’s writing snappy marketing copy for technology companies, walking her dog, or learning to play the drums.
