Youth sports are a great way to benefit our youth by aiding in their physical health, mental wellness, and overall cognitive development. By providing the opportunity for our youth to be physically active, we reduce the risk of many health concerns such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, depression, anxiety, etc. A 2021 Survey by Utah State University reported 1 in 4 children suffered mental health decline when sports were unable to operate. Physical Activity, and sports in particular, can positively affect aspects of personal development amongst youth such as self-esteem, goal setting, and leadership skills. Physical Activity can benefit our youth by providing an alternative to peer pressure and delinquent behaviors and a way to manage emotions.
