The Mastery Approach to Coaching and the Mastery Approach to Parenting in Sports videos are based on many years of research conducted at the University of Washington. The objective of the YESports project was to develop, evaluate, and disseminate child-centered programs that enhance the psychosocial well-being of youth sport participants.
Supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and the William T. Grant Foundation, the research illustrates what is called “evidence-based practice” in the field of medicine. At every stage of the process, scientific research has played a key role in developing YESports programs.
