Sport for All, Play for Life: A Playbook to Develop Every Student Through Sports offers eight strategies to help principals and school leaders update the traditional high school sports model. Students need more options for physical activity, whether through community partnerships, intramurals, student-led clubs or other innovations that supplement the standard menu of interscholastic teams.
The Aspen Institute’s playbook is the product of two years of research with input from more than 60 experts. Each strategy (our “8 Plays”) includes five ideas on how policymakers, industry and other stakeholders can help support. Our Call for Leadership section explores the power of non-discrimination becoming the focus of the next model.
