ABSTRACT

Back on the Field: A Study of the COVID-19 Pandemic's Effects on Youth Sports   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "In 2021, TeamSnap, which provides industry-leading sports management and communication software for amateur sports, designed a study in collaboration with The Aspen Institute's Sports & Society Program, Families in Sport Lab at Utah State University, and Louisiana Tech University's Minds in Motion Lab, to explore the effects of the pandemic on young people and youth sports. [...] The study results demonstrate significant findings about the connection between youth sports and mental health, with 9 in 10 parents (89%) citing mental health as a top reason their children participate in youth sports, and the majority of parents (52%) reporting that their children's mental health and physical fitness decreased during the pandemic."
