Learn about how KIDS in the GAME is working with businesses, foundations and individuals to level the playing field.
Together we can help all kids reach their full potential through increased physical activity. For two years in a row, the next generation is projected to live shorter lives than their parents.
KIDS in the GAME has partnered with PHIT America to implement GO! Grants; a program designed to help increase activity at schools. We help schools because that is where kids spend most of their time.
Increasing physical activity at school teaches kids the power of movement. This program ideal in fighting the ‘Inactivity Pandemic,’ which is creating health & education issues across America.

We Envision a Healthier, More Active Generation:
One Kid, One Community at a Time!
Children from low-income households are half as likely to play one day’s worth of team sports.
45% of Kids and Adults are Kinesthetic Learners, meaning they learn through movement! We are born to play!
Given a choice, being active is what comes naturally to us, most importantly to kids; it’s fun, it helps them grow, it teaches them to live healthily and confidently, it gives them the opportunity to learn through movement. Unfortunately, paying for team fees and activities, in a safe and structured environment is a financial barrier for many families.
Every year physical education budgets decrease and activity is being eliminated or significantly reduced at schools across the country. According to PHIT AMERICA, the average P.E. budget in America is $764 dollars
The effects of Inactivity are astonishing! Kids are not getting the recommended level of physical activity they need to stay healthy and 9 Million kids are completely inactive!
KIDS in the GAME is removing the financial barriers to getting kids active. By helping kids from low-income families to register for after-school sports, participate in physical activity at school, and increase opportunities to be active; we are inspiring kids, families, schools, and communities to live healthy and active lives together.
