READ: 2023 WSF Report The Healing Power of Sport: COVID-19 and Girls’ Participation, Health, and Achievement
The Healing Power of Sport: COVID-19 and Girls’ Participation, Health, and Achievement is one of the first studies to examine ways in which sports participation among girls was impacted during the pandemic and how sport served as a protective factor against some of COVID-19’s negative impacts on behavior, mental health, and academic achievement. These findings underscore the importance of sports participation for girls, highlight the need to invest more so that all girls have access and opportunity, and can serve as a foundation for strategies that meet the needs of girls more holistically, especially those most marginalized.
