Youth Basketball League- Group 12

Our Goal:

Our team will create a youth basketball league for children between the ages of 11-14. The basketball league will serve the residents of the township of East Lansing, a suburban municipality in Michigan. Approximately 400 boys and girls will participate in this league.

Our Purpose:

Youth sports should be an ideal environment for children to learn and develop basic motor competencies such as fundamental motor skills, fine motor control, as well as a place to build physical fitness and achieve a recommended amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA). Youth sports should be an ideal environment where children can build psychosocial and emotional skills that can help them to adapt to the stress of life and take control of their destinies. But more often than not, youth sports do not help children develop these skills. The purpose of this assignment is for our group to propose a way to create a model youth sport program, where participants can truly improve their motor skills and psychosocial/emotional skills.
