The Reason Ryan Created National Sports ID

This problem is so widespread that Coach Ryan wanted to do something about it, as he felt young athletes were being taught and learning that cheating was ok.
Ryan Tremblay then created National Sports ID, a website to verify the age and grade of youth athletes. The platform was built and processes created to help assure a fair playing field for all teams to compete in.
