Partnerships & Sponsorships to Promote Youth Sports, Fitness and Health
Research presented in a new report from the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (2017) has shown that sport and physical activity can have both a positive and negative effect on youth substance use.
That’s why we developed the evidence-based SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) program that integrates effective substance use prevention with fitness, sports and health promotion to enhance youth athletic and academic performance.
Randomized trials have shown the single-session SPORT PPW program prevents youth alcohol, tobacco and marijuana use while increasing physical activity by addressing healthy eating, sports and exercise, sleep, stress control, goal setting and positive self-identity.
You can read more about the SPORT PPW program, and research evaluating its effectiveness, on our website: http://preventionpluswellness.com/sport-prevention-plus-wellness/
SPORT PPW is being implemented throughout the US by youth peer leaders, coaches, teachers, healthcare providers, and parents.
It can quickly and easily be integrated into school and community sports and recreation programs, sports physicals, school physical and health education classes, after school programs, youth groups, pediatric care visits, and at home by parents.
Call to discuss a partnership or sponsorship for your youth sports program or league.
