What's the coaltion?
PLAY Sports = Promoting Local and Youth Sports
PLAYS is a unique coalition of thousands of stakeholders across the national and community youth sports industry. It was formed in April 2020 to unite a fragmented industry and continues to be an active advocate of support for youth development programs, young athletes, working families, coaches and volunteers across all 50 states, particularly those in under-resourced areas.
Our mission is to ensure the youth and local sports industry thrives by providing families, and especially youth, fair access to play opportunities for physical and mental health, character and leadership development. We believe it is a vital movement that will serve a key role in repairing a society that needs community, connectivity, and joy.
