Supporting Youth Athletics
HEALTH: Kids who play sports are more likely to be fit and exercise as adults, become overweight and less likely to develop certain diseases and conditions. Sports also helps to reduce stress and depression.
MINDSET: Kids will learn life skills which they can carry through adulthood – time management, leadership and how to handle loss.
SOCIAL ISSUES: Youth athletes are less likely to begin smoking, abuse drugs or alcohol. They are more likely to develop a sense of belonging, strong self-esteem and confidence. And team sports can foster organic integration, where economic and racial differences are replaced by friendship and the collective desire to win.
ACADEMICS: Children who play sports in high school are more academically successful – more likely to graduate high school and 15% more likely to attend college.
FINANCIAL: Young people who played high school sports had a better career outlook and performed better in their jobs later in life. Athletes, who are more likely to continue to exercise, also spend on average less of their future income on health care costs.
Participation in sports activities has been on the decline for over a decade. Some contributing factors are:
- Lack of exposure
- Access to facilities and programs
- Shortage of positive & knowledgeable coaches
- Time barriers
- Financial burdens
- Competing sedentary activities: TV, phones, games & computers
- Emphasis on early talent and winning vs. development
- Facility Rentals
- Uniforms + Equipment
- Coaches + Mentors
- Graphics + Website + Media
- Admin + Programming + Scheduling
- Staffing + Volunteers
