The benefits of sport reach beyond the impact on physical wellbeing. Physical activity is vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health and development. Participation in a sport activity has shown to be a practical tool to engage young people and offers social inclusion, equal opportunities regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability.
