Youth Study
Product Number:
TC5082

When participating in sports and competitive games, many youth are more focused on winning than they are enjoying the activity or their ability to play. This study focuses on how we can use the gift of a healthy body for competitive sports while still honoring God with our attitudes and words on and off the playing field. Youth will discuss what it means to be a good sport and how God's presence in sports can help them keep a healthy perspective when they compete. While the study mostly focuses on physical sports activities, suggestions are given for groups comprised of youth mostly involved in nonphysical competitive activities.

Ellie Roscher teaches theology and social justice at a Catholic high school in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she also coaches gymnastics and softball and leads justice education trips to El Salvador. She was a two- sport competitive college athlete who now enjoys noncompetitive play like yoga, skiing, and marathon running. She has published a book, How Coffee Saved My Life, about a year spent in rural Uruguay.
