We are passionate about the power of sport here at relate, and for good reason. When youth are given the opportunity to play sports, the effect is lasting and goes far beyond the field. As a collective we all benefit when sport participation levels are increased. Sports have the power provide more opportunity to those who participate, and strengthen social capital.
