Hello Insight:

Sports

For young people Ages 11 – 23

We can't adjust our strategy if we don't know the score.

Every season, we see the young people we coach and mentor come into their own on the field, the court, the rink. The skills that develop through being part of a sports-based youth development program can stay with a person forever.

Hello Insight: Sports measures the SEL capacities best nurtured by sports programs and asks young people to reflect on the quality of their experiences. With HI Sports, your program is well equipped to coach young people in becoming strong athletes and resilient adults.

Capacities

SEL is a continuous, ongoing process in young people that involves developing many skills and attributes that are closely related, but distinct enough to be measured on their own. We call these “capacities.” Hello Insight: Sports reports on key capacities that are particularly well nurtured by sports-based programming.
