The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The health of all people is fundamental. The healthy development of children is a foundational right. Youth sports are a platform for lifelong health. Regular activity helps prevent disease and improves mental health, well-being and quality of
life. Yet, much of the nation is becoming sedentary. Youth development outcomes are not possible if young people do not participate in physically and emotionally safe environments.
