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 Up2Us Sports host sites for collecting high quality data and achieving great results for their youth!

Host Site #4: New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics High School

Sci High is based in New Orleans and has hosted Up2Us Sports coaches since 2012. During the 2015-2016 program year, Sci High hosted one returning coach. Youth participants who worked with the Up2Us coach had the following results:

  • The Up2Us coach served 100% female youth 
  •  71% of youth participants completed both the baseline and endline PACER tests
  •  84% of youth improved in the PACER by at least one lap
  •  The average PACER score improved by 8 laps
  •  82% of youth improved in one or more positive attribute 
  •  94% of participants report that they trust their coach and that their coach is a good role model
  •  91% of participants report that the things they learned in the program will help them in their lives
