Sport-Based Youth and Community Development: Beyond the Ball in Chicago
Jacobs, Jennifer M.; Castañeda, Amy; Castañeda, Rob
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v87 n5 p18-22 2016
Rob and Amy Castañeda, the co-founders of a sports/play-based youth and community development organization called Beyond the Ball (, cite the collaborative and dynamic nature of the TPSR Alliance as an important influence for their work. Beyond the Ball serves individuals between kindergarten and post-college, in the North Lawndale and Little Village neighborhoods of Chicago. Their programs include basketball, soccer, tutoring, mentoring and youth leadership training, and are staffed by adult volunteers as well as by local teens whom Beyond the Ball has trained. The Castañedas have been members of the TPSR Alliance since its inception in 2008 and continue to be active members representing a community entity that gives and receives much support from the group. Their story shows how teaching personal and social responsibility (TPSR) and the Alliance support sport-based community development, as well as physical education and youth sport programs at school.
