Abstract

Youth sports experiences are used to develop instinctive and creative knowledge in crisis or complex situations. According to Socrates, true knowledge was conjured up by stimulating past experiences. Participation in youth sports might improve individuals’ ability to evaluate contingencies, while identifying characteristics and behaviors that produce opportunities in demanding situations. Effective change required collaboration from involved participants, and required transparent communication to build team confidence throughout the implementation process.
