Kevin Carroll's picture

Raised by his grandparents in the greater Philadelphia area, Kevin spent endless hours at the neighborhood playground where he found his “calling” -- a red rubber ball. His subsequent pursuit of sport and play (aka his "red rubber ball") plus his love of learning has led Kevin to becoming an author, a speaker, a high performance coach and a social change agent. Kevin is an author of four highly successful books published by ESPN, Disney Press, McGraw-Hill and A Kids Book About. He has helped turn creative ideas into reality for organizations such as Nike, Starbucks, adidas, Walt Disney, Target, Proctor & Gamble, Columbia Sportswear, Mattel, the National Basketball Association and many others. Kevin has dedicated his life to advancing education, sports and play as a vehicle for social change and success. He was honored to address the United Nations as part of the UN Year of Sports for Development and Peace in 2005 and is an ongoing advisor and active supporter for many global social innovation organizations. Kevin was named by SUCCESS magazine as one of 19 “SEERS – changing the world!”
