A positive relationship between sports and youth resilience/well being was found through interviews done with 50 youths at Beyond Social Services. Sports have positively influenced children’s sense of mastery, independence, belonging, and generosity and strengthened their physical, social, and cognitive skills. It also increases resilience among youths at-risk, improving their overall well-being. Sports are an important component at Beyond since it creates a safe environment for youth and fosters a sense of community.
