The My Voice Survey from the Quaglia Institute is an instrument that measures the conditions that support self-worth, active engagement and purpose in schools in order to help every student reach his or her fullest potential.  One piece of active engagement can be involvement with sports teams, a question asked of high school students on the Montana Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).  This report cross-tabs sports team involvement with prevalence rates for 18 health risk behaviors asked on the 2011 Montana YRBS.  Click on "Sports Team Participation 2011" from this link http://opi.mt.gov/Reports&Data/YRBS.html.
