Sensitivity of statistical models in detecting effects of equal prioritisation on physical activity participation. International Journal of Sport Psychology. 48 (2): pp. 165-182.

This article discusses and critiques recent research trends within the study of positive youth development (PYD) through sport in addition to proposing directions for future study. Specifically, it is suggested that future work in PYD through sport delve into its potential application to the study of community development. First this article explores early work providing the theoretical background for PYD followed by a discussion of sport psychology’s adoption of PYD concepts. Recent PYD research is then examined suggesting strong evidence supporting the enhancement of life skills through sport contingent on an appropriate set of contextual factors and coach/leader strategies being in place. Support for the enhancement of the 5Cs through sport is less consistent. Several steps are suggested to help substantiate the connection between PYD and community development through empirical research.
