Global Matrix 4.0 data help inform Project Play’s international evaluation of the sport governance structures

To inform the conversation on how to build healthy children and communities through sport, the Aspen Institute’s Project Play has recently conducted an evaluation of the sport governance structures in the United States and 11 peer countries. The choice of countries for comparison was influenced by geographical, cultural, and economic factors, as well as their performance in international events, including the Olympics. The examination encompassed both the procedures and outcomes and included grade assignments for Youth Sport Participation (based on the percentage of youth participating in sports) and the Government Support (evaluated based on expert assessments).

Most of the grades in these categories were drawn from the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance’s Global Matrix 4.0 report.

Project Play’s news article titled “The value of sport system design” discusses this work in more detail.  Please follow this link to read the article in full:
