Ontario Back To Play Research Project

The expected research seeks to understand the current state of youth sport offerings in Ontario, Canada. Through a survey of youth (ages 6-29), parents and organizations involved with sport in Ontario, the back to play survey aims to understand the current state of youth sport in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Access to opportunity, whether or not youth are comfortable engaging or reengaging in sport, and whether social or economic factors such as race, income or geography influence how or who is return to play, will be explored. The survey itself will include both quantitative and qualitative items for analysis, with key findings to be shared publicly and to inform future research, policy, funding strategy.
