The Need

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a second epidemic of its own, affecting the mental health of young people everywhere.

 

“What you learn from playing sports matters more than winning and becoming a star – now more than ever as mental health challenges grow during the Coronavirus Pandemic, which has shut down many sports opportunities for kids.

 

We’re in a very difficult time for youth sports right now. Health and safety are understandably the top priorities. But it’s also a health issue if kids are not participating in life.”

- Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner

With suicide mortality rates rising over the past two decades, the stressors of the current pandemic are also creating a “perfect storm,” as noted in a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in April. One contributing factor is that many students who relied on sport scholarships to get into college have potentially lost that chance.

 

The stats can't be ignored:
