That's a terrible take, man.

My junior just got invited to a BB visit at Butler. In large part because he shoots baskets outside incessently and has since he was old enough to get the ball over the rim of the hoop - in the middle of shit weather more often than not. He and his buddies are constantly shooting baskets and doing other things outside. Same kid was in the state tennis tourney yesterday in Pueblo in cold, windy weather with another few hundred high schoolers playing tennis. They looked just fine to me and were having a grand time. If you would have watched the talent on display as a result of hard work (mostly outdoors), then you wouldn't say something as silly as "kids don't know how to play outdoors". If you play baseball out here, you play in windy, spring weather. If you play soccer or football you play in windy weather.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but I hope you're not this cynical with your students. Generalizing is the lazy man's way of discussion. Our kids are not just a bunch of button-smashing zombies.
