Service Description

Sport-based youth development (SBYD) refers to the use of sports and physical activities as a tool to promote positive youth development. The goal of SBYD programs is to help young people develop social, emotional, and cognitive skills that will help them succeed in life, such as teamwork, leadership, and goal setting. Hoosier Sport embodies SBYD structure by promoting positive youth development and reducing cardiovascular disease related risk factors for negative outcomes such as excessive weight, poor diet, and life skills attainment. Hoosier Sport also aims to improve physical health and well-being among young people. - Here are some ways that SBYD programs can benefit youth of all demographics: 1. Access to Sports: SBYD programs can help provide rural youth with access to organized sports and physical activities, which may not be available in their communities. This can help promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles among rural youth. 2. Skill Development: SBYD programs can help rural youth develop important social, emotional, and cognitive skills such as teamwork, leadership, communication, and decision-making. These skills can be valuable for success in school, work, and other areas of life. 3. Mentoring: SBYD programs often incorporate mentoring relationships between coaches, volunteers, and youth participants. These relationships can provide rural youth with positive role models and supportive adults who can help guide them and provide encouragement. 4. Community Engagement: SBYD programs can help build connections between rural youth and their communities. Through participation in sports and other activities, youth can develop a sense of belonging and pride in their community.
