Abstract/ Summary

A new initiative from the National Center for Student Aspirations (NCSA) at the University of Maine is expanding its work in the classroom to the playing field and tackling the hotly debated issue of what’s appropriate and in the best interest of young athletes.

The controversial world of sports is becoming more contentious as the intense competitive nature of college and professional athletics reach the nation’s middle and high schools and put unrealistic expectations on students and coaches, according to Russ Quaglia, director of the NCSA and associate professor at UMaine.
