Positive Youth Development

Our PYD programme aims to unlock the hidden potential awaiting development embodied in young people through sport and activity.  It is the manner in which sport is structured and delivered to children that influences their development. Rather than look upon young people as problems waiting to be solved, DP Sports provides the ideal environment and facilities to encourage them to unlock their their hidden potential.

 

The aim of PYD is to use the potential of competitive youth sport to

1) intentionally use these opportunities to foster PYD.

2) highlight how these personal and social skills might be used outside of sport.

3) provide support as athletes internalize and apply a particular skill.

 

Additionally, PYD develops personal and social skills, could help athletes learn sport skills, and could influence game performance
