Five ways to support youth sports – Day 3

Part three in our five-part series this week from our friends at

In order to make youth sports a positive and enriching experience for all kids, it’s important to understand the challenges many families face in terms of participating in youth sports.

This week we encourage families and your sport organizations to consider 5 components of youth sports – one each day – and how it impacts your kids.

Day 3: Find Access

To provide opportunities, we have to work to make access to youth sports easier and more prevalent. 

Advocate for the inclusion of any kid who wants to participate, whether this means sourcing adaptive equipment or lending your voice in support of the disadvantaged.
