The more we get together: Groups as a vehicle for positive youth development through sport

Speaker: Dr. Colin McLaren

Groups are a vital context for social participation and synergistic learning opportunities. Perceptions of the processes that take place in these groups hold a strong influence on member thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In the Groups for Youth Development (G4YD) Laboratory, we work to understand how youth team sport participation acts as a vehicle for positive psychosocial development. In this presentation, I will give an overview of ongoing research projects and innovative methods we use to understand how perceptions of the social sport environment relate to prosocial and antisocial behaviors towards teammates, as well as indices of mental health and sport adherence. Additionally, I will discuss a novel, peer-led intervention in which we integrate the power of the group environment to build identity from within youth sport teams.
