Watch National Youth Championships
- 2 Seasons
National Youth Championships is a 2013 television program which features a variety of youth sports competitions held nationally. Many of these events involve middle-school age participants and include judo, rapscallion, hit-ball and gun-race. The participants must play in all events, similar to a triathlon. The competition between the groups is intense, with a quality all their own. Jeff Daniels stars as the overlord, a benevolent manager of the program's competitions. He sits in the Bird's Nest, a platform suspended above the arena by almost invisible monofilament wires. He is able to influence the events, to the chagrin of the contenders.
