Our quarters are now Designer Coin series. It started with the State quarters. Then came the America the Beautiful. Currently we're in year one of American Women and next up: Youth Sports There will be 20 sport quarters... Can you name all 20?? What will they be? Some will be obvious...(This is just my list, I'm just guessing) BASEBALL *FOOTBALL *SOCCER *BASKETBALL *HOCKEY *VOLLEYBALL *LACROSSE *TENNIS *BADMINTON *TRACK *
Then it starts getting tougher... *GOLF *WRESTLING *BOWLING *SKATING *KARATE *GYMNASTICS *SKATEBOARDING *SWIMMING *SKIING *BICYCLING

but there can only be 20... what will be left out?? Some consider Chess a sport...some of the more obscure sports won't make the cut: ARCHERY *FISHING *ROCK CLIMBING *FENCING *KICK BOXING *HORSE RACING *BUNGEE JUMPING *SKY DIVING *WIND SURFING Of course many sports aren't Youth Sports...would Softball be considered different than Baseball? T-ball? Stickball? Handball? Which sports do you think will be making the cut to be honored on our quarters?

    I believe your list is really, really good. However, badminton likely would not make the cut and bowling might not, either. It would seem to me that the more "dynamic" or "modern" sports would replace them like rock climbing or kick boxing. As an aside, I have a number of fencing medals and sometimes these are quite nice, but I highly doubt fencing would make the list. Here are the obverses from a couple medals-

    I’m a big youth sports guy and have coached several. 20 seems like a ton to me. We get a handful of women and 20 youth sports? Alright. (Sorry, just an aside, no one has to address that part now that it’s out of my brain)
    On top of the big major ones, I’m guessing there will be one for some sort equestrian event and maybe even a rodeo one for the western kids (mutton busting, roping, barrel racing, or something).
    Are e-sports big enough to make it into the top 20?

    Someone suggested Rowing to me today. The more I look at the suggested sports, I like @TomB 's suggestion Rock Climbing, the more I think about it, it's common to find climbing walls.
