A Brief History of American Youth Sports
In colonial America, children played a variety of games and activities, mimicking their parents and other adults. These activities included hunting, fishing, and wrestling. As a result of the industrial revolution and urbanization, leisure time for young people increased. Youth sports programs emerged out of this opportunity.
Most people have heard of the YMCA (the Young Men’s Christian Association), which had a large role in mainstreaming youth sports in the 19th and 20th centuries. Playing sports was a way to promote Christian values and character development. The YMCA is also credited with introducing basketball to young people.
As schools and colleges began adopting physical education programs, they also integrated sports like baseball, football, and basketball. At the beginning of the 20th century, interscholastic sports grew. Schools and communities began planning their own youth sports competitions.
Formal governing bodies emerged during this process with the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) in 1888 and NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) in 1906 rising in status.
By the middle of the 20th century, youth sports got specialized and became more competitive. New coaching and training programs arose and a visible shift from participation to winning emerged. Television and commercialization further the development and participation in various youth sports across the nation. Clubs, travel teams, and high-level competitive tournaments became popular. By 1970, youth sports were a major part of American life with millions of children participants and billions of dollars in revenue.
