dc.description.abstractStudy into life skill development through sport has increased in recent years, with researchers beginning to evidence the transfer of skills nurtured through sport to other walks of life (Jones, 2012). The aim of this symposium is to provide insight into a number of programs set up by researchers at Cardiff Metropolitan University in collaboration with sporting institutions that aimed to support the development of life skills through sport. The first presentation gives insight into the collaboration with Carmarthen Golf club to develop PasSPORT for life (www.passport4life.co.uk), a resiliency related, life skills intervention for adolescents through sport – in this case golf. The second presentation offers an overview of the development of a coach education program in collaboration with the Welsh Football Trust that aims to work with coaches during formal training to integrate life skill development during soccer practice. The third presentation introduces LiveSMART, a 5-year program that aims to develop the life skills of 8-12 year olds within the Golf Union of Wales’ Coaching Centers. The final presentation discusses the support for coaches accredited by the Golf Union of Wales to deliver their Coaching Centers initiative – with a particular focus on supporting their implementation of LiveSMART. Collectively, these programs have evidenced the value of systematic approaches to practice that introduce, develop, and facilitate the transfer of life skills through sport. This has been achieved through explicit consideration of the role of the sporting context, the importance of the coach, and the holistic development of young people. Consequently, these programs support growing calls for sporting programs to be based upon the key principles of positive youth development. Importantly, time will be allocated for questions and recommendations from the delegates in attendance.en_US
