The National Alliance for Youth Sports developed standards for youth sports in 1987, which provided direction for youth sports parents to follow when developing and administering youth sports for children. It was updated in 2008 to re-examine the Standards amid the evolving youth sports environment. Then in 2016, a group of Certified Youth Sports Administrators provided a new revision. The National Standard for Youth Sports serves as a blueprint for how recreational youth sports providers can meet the needs of all their participants. The National Standards for Youth Sports place in motion guidance for league and program administrators to implement to ensure the best possible youth sports experience for all.
