Quality community sport programs have a profound, positive effect on children and youth. They can learn important skills like teamwork, respect, and socialization, build lifelong friendships, and increase their confidence – all in a safe, fun, and educational environment. Additional studies continue to show that children who play sport are more likely to perform well in school, less likely to get in trouble with the law, and more likely to have higher self-esteem. In short, SPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
