How do I find information on children and sports?
Last Updated: Mar 28, 2024     Views: 93

Much has been written about children and sports. We suggest searching in Opposing Viewpoints in Context. This database is on the Research Databases page, linked on the Library homepage.

Enter the term "youth sports" in the main search box. This will open with an overview of the topic and limiters immediately below it with different types of content, such as Viewpoints for pro/con type articles, Magazines, or Reference. Once a content type is selected, you can click on the Subjects box on the right side of the page to further narrow results.

Also, try these searches separately:

children AND "youth sports"

children AND "organized sports"

You will need to scroll through the results to find information that applies to your focus.

This will get you started on the topic, but to take your search to the next level, check out our guides:
