HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:
Youth sport and physical activity programs must be deliberately structured to foster positive psychosocial development. One way to facilitate positive youth development (PYD) outcomes is to adopt an intentional program structure. In the frameworks outlined in this factsheet, there are similarities that cluster around providing a safe and supportive environment, youth voice, and intentionally teaching life skills. Staff who are intentional with these approaches provide opportunities for learning, internalizing, and transferring skills.
This factsheet outlines popular frameworks and models that have been used within youth sport programming.
