The physical and psychosocial benefits of youth sport involvement are well recognized. Physical activity facilitates cardiovascular fitness, weight control, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and healthy bone structure.
Findings presented in the journal, ‘Athletic Insight,’ show that active youth maintain physical activity habits in adulthood; and active youth are less likely to develop numerous diseases later in life, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, depression and cancer.
Further, sport experiences often foster citizenship, social success, positive peer relationships, leadership skills, and a sense of initiative in youth. Youth sport involvement has been positively correlated with adult career achievement and reductions with school dropout and delinquent behavior.
Will you help us in our efforts to give kids life-changing programs that will help prepare them for adulthood?
