It is estimated that 10-20% of Canadian Youth are affected by mental illness or disorder - the single most disabling group of disorders worldwide.
Over the past 20 years there has been a drastic increase in the number of youth impacted by mental illness. While improvements have been made, we still see the stigmas associated with mental health. We strive to break down these stigmas through sport.
As coaches, players, and parents, we have experienced first hand the desire to win, to be the best, to be perfect on the field. To us being your best on the field is learning and growing, not only as an athlete but beyond who you are on the field. We believe that in order to be successful in sports, and in life, developing your mental skills is even more important than the physical skills.
The fact that we can impact these illnesses through intentional sports programs, even to help one child, would make the 140 Sports program worthwhile.
