dc.description.abstractThis capstone project reviewed research literature exploring current trends in youth sports participation. The three issues of ‘specialization’, ‘hyper-competitiveness and exclusionary team forming’, and ‘the influence of leadership’, were identified as being most significantly responsible for impacting the efficacy of extracurricular school based sports as a conduit for fostering feelings of school connectedness in adolescents. School connectedness theory was used to contextualize these issues from an educational perspective, and to provide the framework and consistent direction necessary for addressing these concerns moving forward. As such, specific recommendations for changes in the design of extracurricular school based intramural sports programs were presented for future implementation. Further research should attempt to collect data that begins to empirically measure and validate the effectiveness of a reconfigured intramural sports model in enhancing feelings of school connectedness in adolescents.en_US
