The Value of Sport Sampling as an Influence and Intervention in a Sport-Based Youth Development Program
Through engagement with sport and physical activity, sport-based youth development programs aim to support the development of youth toward a positive sense of self, enrich their human and social capital, and enhance their personal skills, development assets, and competencies.

The purpose of this study is to explore the role, programmatic strategy, and impact of sport sampling opportunities offered in a sport-based youth development (SBYD) program.

Nineteen racially and economically marginalized youth, ages 10-17 years old, participating in an after-school SBYD program on the campus of a large university in the Southeast United States were interviewed.

Data revealed four themes (sampling sport, emotional management, development outcomes, and sports mentoring) comprised of 12 sub-themes.

The authors of the study discussed each theme against the backdrop of the racially and economically marginalized community in which participants live.

Implications of the study can be used to help advance sport-sampling as a development intervention in campus-community partnerships, as well as expand the authors' conceptual understanding of sport sampling. - Journal of Sport for Development
