Help Kids Get Active with the National Youth Sports Strategy

Jul 18, 2022

Youth sports are a great way for young people to get active and learn important life skills. But barriers like cost, lack of time, and lack of inclusive options for kids of all abilities can make it difficult to participate. The National Youth Sports Strategy aims to remove these barriers and give every kid the chance to play.

This actionable strategy is based on research and best practices from the scientific community and successful youth sports programs across the Nation. The National Youth Sports Strategy can help increase youth sports participation by focusing on fun over competition, advocating for safe and accessible sports programs and facilities, and promoting important messages about the benefits of youth sports.

And you can help spread the word! Parents, coaches, organizations, communities, and policymakers all have a role to play in making youth sports safe, fun, and accessible for all. Learn more about the Strategy and how to get involved.
