“Promoting Better Health for Young People Through Physical Activity and Sports” offers 10 strategies for promoting lifelong participation in physical activity and sports. It also suggests ways that communities, families, schools, media, after-school programs, youth sports programs, and recreation programs can help implement these strategies. The report was created in response to an executive memorandum asking for the Departments of Education and Health and Human Services to identify “strategies to promote better health for our nation’s youth through physical activity and fitness.”
