Tiffany Brown & Katie Steele On ‘Free Your Voice’ Podcast with Host Dustin Plantholt

In this episode of “Free Your Voice,” hosted by Dustin Plantholt, listeners can expect a profound and insightful conversation with Tiffany and Katie, the esteemed authors of  “The Price She Pays: Confronting the Hidden Mental Health Crisis in Women’s Sports―from the Schoolyard to the Stadium.”

The episode delves deeply into the societal pressures and personal challenges faced by young female athletes today, focusing particularly on the intense expectations to conform and excel in their sports at a very young age.

Tiffany and Katie discuss the multifaceted pressures these young athletes endure, which include not only physical performance but also maintaining a certain image and dealing with the pervasive influence of social media. They highlight how these pressures to conform can often lead to a loss of individuality and a constant comparison with peers, which can significantly impact mental health and self-esteem. The conversation also covers the topic of resilience and the strategies that can help young athletes navigate the competitive sports environment more healthily and sustainably.

Furthermore, the speakers touch upon the crucial role of parents and coaches in the development and well-being of these athletes. They emphasize the importance of creating supportive and understanding environments, rather than adding to the pressure to perform. The discussion also explores how schools and sports organizations can contribute to a healthier sports culture that prioritizes the well-being of its athletes over their achievements.

The episode is not just a critique of the current state of sports but also serves as a call to action for all stakeholders involved in youth sports—from family members to sports administrators—to reevaluate and improve the ways in which young athletes are supported in their careers. Tiffany and Katie provide valuable insights and practical advice on how to foster environments that celebrate individual differences, promote mental health, and encourage a balanced approach to sports and personal development.
