Inspiring kids to thrive in life through sports
by providing resources that get and keep KIDS in the GAME
KIDS in the GAME is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on empowering youth to live up to their full potential through positive sports experiences that form active, healthy habits for a lifetime.
- We provide financial assistance to low-income, underserved youth who cannot afford the increasing costs of playing sports.
- We raise awareness of the importance of athletics in developing future leaders, with skills and values that transfer from the sports field into the classroom, workplace, family and community.
Youth sports are a critical positive developmental tool for the next generation of Americans. They provide an action-oriented and successful path to discipline, leadership, crime-prevention, lower drop-out rates and healthy lifestyles. Research studies overwhelmingly conclude that kids who participate in after-school athletic programs do better in life.
To increase opportunities for youth to participate in sports regardless of ability, ethnicity or socio-economic background, we developed KIDS in the GAME. This giving program makes it easy for anyone to help low-income, underserved youth participate in organized sports. Donations help close funding gaps in youth sports programs, increase access and improve the quality of programs that inspire and engage young athletes. Together, we can provide the opportunity, inspiration and motivation that make it possible for more youth to reap the benefits of positive sports experiences. Help get and keep kids in the game!
