About the Author

Nicholas L. Holt is a professor and leader of the Child and Adolescent Sport and Activity lab in the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta (Canada). He conducts research examining psychosocial aspects of participation in sport and physical activity among children, adolescents, and their families.


"This work, in its second edition, brings together leading researchers from diverse disciplines to provide a critical examination of sport in the youth developmental process. The book takes a clear position that sport itself does not lead to positive youth development (PYD) and cuts through political and social stances on the role that sport plays in society. Contributors provide solid examples of approaches, structures, and delivery modes in which sport can positively influence child development. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and a, bove; faculty and professionals." - R. D. Sheptak Jr, CHOICE
