Social and Emotional Learning Youth Sports

New Partnership Explores how Youth Sports can Improve Social and Emotional Skills

SCE is pleased to partner with the Aspen Institute’s Sports & Society Program and National Commission on Social, Emotional, & Academic Development to explore how youth sports can improve social and emotional skills.
This year-long collaboration aims to:

  • Spark a dialogue about what makes a good coach and how sports can improve social and emotional skills;
  • Build knowledge and identify strategies on how to train coaches in SEL practices and outcomes; and
  • Increase the number of coaches who understand and receive training in SEL practices.

Stay tuned for the release of research briefs, case studies, and tools to help put these findings into action slated for early 2019.
