About Us

Be A Good Sport with The Small Sports!

Established in 2011, The Small Sports® is the creation of author Matthew Damman and illustrator Patty Eisenbraun. 

We created The Small Sports when we saw a lack of children's characters teaching kids (and adults!) about teamwork and good sportsmanship. 

We self-published two books, "Go For The Goal" and "Take The Field" which were true labor of loves - but we did it and we had a blast reading the books to local schools. 


Our characters are youth soccer, football, baseball, basketball players and more - all kids will find fun with The Small Sports!
