Sports Involvement in Early Childhood Development

Author: Janele Tucker, Janne Tullius, Gianna Vasotola, Hannah Fox, and Tomiaya Graham

Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Phillis George


As students of the Intro to Social Problems service-learning course instructed by Dr. Phillis George, we chose to be a part of civic engagement to make a difference in our community. Our Goal was to observe children’s actions due to the influence of educational institutions and parental rearing. Civil engagement gave us the opportunity to interact with two of the most suppressing social problems: Educations and Rearing. This study includes an analysis of a child’s behavior observed on the involvement in sports included in their daily life activities.
