About the sport pipeline


We define the sport pipeline as the developmental system through which athletes move from youth-age (age 3-13) to high-school age (14-18) to college-age (18-23) to professional sports. The sport pipeline is made up by any sport organization, league, or association working at the local, state or regional, and national level that implements or supports one or many sport programs for athletes in youth, high school, college, and professional athletics.
