Diminishing the Youth Crime Epidemic in Washington D.C. Through Sports. By: Ethan Edwards

The youth crime epidemic needs to be solved. Sports could be the solution.

Public schools should introduce intramurals.

Softball in the spring

Soccer in the Summer

Volleyball in the fall

Basketball in the winter.

Coaching provides mentorship that many youth would not have access to.

Sports provide character growth.
