COVID-19: Youth Sports

The COVID-19 pandemic forced an almost complete stop to organized sports activities for youth in Hawaiʻi including most high school sports as well as little league baseball, youth soccer, and keiki football and basketball.

The decisions to cancel youth sporting events were driven by safety concerns to prevent the spread of the disease. How do these decisions affect physical development of children?

Join the conversation on COVID-19: Youth Sports, Thursday on Insights on PBS Hawaiʻi.
