The Institute for the Study of Youth Sports (ISYS) was founded by the Michigan Legislature in 1978. The mission of ISYS is to provide leadership, conduct scientific research, and engage in service or outreach that transforms the face of youth sports in ways that maximize the beneficial physical, psychological, and social effects of participation for children and youth while minimizing detrimental effects.
