We want kids to get out and play before, during and after school. Regular physical activity for kids is essential for healthy development. Involvement in sports has been shown to improve academic performance, resiliency and resourcefulness.
KIDS in the GAME partners with foundations, community groups, schools and corporations to fund sports participation for individual kids and to finance programs that get kids moving. We work within schools and community structures that are already in place so the money goes furthest.
Here’s how KIDS in the GAME can help young people in your area or your household gain access to youth sports.
Individual Youth Sports Grants
The Pass Program gives money to single moms, families, caregivers and foster parents to pay for sports registration fees for kids 18 and under.
GO! Grants for Schools
KIDS in the GAME will help your elementary school find the money to jumpstart athletic programs that serve underprivileged youth.
Get Kids Off the Sidelines and Into the Game
Paying for this is a small but potent investment. Children engaged in organized physical activities are at reduced risk of early pregnancy, academic failure, substance use or forming habits that lead to health problems.
KIDS in the GAME is working. Today, 150 schools that had no organized sports programs now do. Over 50,000 school-kids and 10,000 more in community programs have been supported.
