Up2Us Sports host sites participate in data collection to measure the benefits of a coach trained in Sports Based Youth Development for youth health and life skills. Data collection includes youth fitness tests (the PACER) and youth surveys measuring the High Impact Attributes, a group of positive attributes connected to the sport experience and to positive life outcomes.  Up2Us Sports would like to recognize four host sites for collecting high quality data and achieving great results for their youth!

Host Site #1: Noah’s Arc Foundation

Noah’s Arc Foundation is based in Chicago and has hosted Up2Us Sports coaches since 2014. During the 2015-2016 program year, youth participants who worked with the Up2Us Sports coach had the following results:

  • 95% of youth participants completed both the baseline and endline PACER tests
  • 78% of youth improved their score by at least one lap
  • At the end of the program, 60% of participants were in the Healthy Fitness Zone compared to 40% at the start of the program
  • 84% of participants  completed both the baseline and the endline survey
  •  75% of younger participants and 100% of older participants improved in one or more positive attribute
  • 88% of younger participants reported that they trust their coach and that the program helps them to be healthy
  • 89% of older participants report that the things they learned in the program will help them in their lives
