Beginning this fall, student-athletes and coaches from the Syracuse (N.Y.) City School District will team up with a local domestic and sexual violence service agency in a pilot program called "Coaching Boys into Men." With a goal of inspiring male athletes to have more respect for women and girls, the program will include weekly conversations with athletes about healthy relationships and preventing violence.



The number of participants in high school sports increased for the 25th consecutive year in 2013-14 with a record total of almost 7.8 million, according to the annual High School Athletics Participation Survey conducted by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). The most surprising statistic, however, is the increase in participation numbers for football, which previously had been on the decline.

Based on figures from the 51 NFHS member state high school associations, which includes the District of Columbia, sports participation for the 2013-14 school year reached an all-time high of 7,795,658 - an increase of 82,081 from the previous year. This one-year increase was the highest since 2009-10.
