We are removing financial barriers and getting more kids active because we believe
. . . every kid deserves the chance to play!
By helping kids from low-income families 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.
Help us Activate More Kids
Join KIDS in the GAME!
through donations and partnerships with businesses, foundations and individuals KIDS in the GAME is leveling the playing field.
Together we can help kids reach their full potential through increased physical activity.
KIDS in the GAME has partnered with PHIT America to help decrease the “Sedentary Crisis.”
AMPED is a school-based running program; focusing on schools with little to no PE. Lack of physical activity in schools is diminishing fundamental motor-skills, such as running basics, kids learn to be proficient and confident to play sports.
Did you know kids from low-income homes are 1/2 as likely to play one day in team sports?
45% of kids are kinesthetic learners (learn through movement)! We were born to move!
Given a choice, being active is what comes naturally to us, most importantly to kids!
- It’s fun
- Helps kids grow
- Teaches kids to live healthily and confidently
- Gives kids the opportunity to learn through movement
“The average P.E. budget in America is $764 dollars.”* Every year PE budgets decrease and activity is eliminated or reduced at schools across our country.
Paying for team fees and activities, in a safe and structured environment is a major financial barrier.
The effects of Inactivity are astonishing!
Only 7% of kids are active to CDC Standards! Kids are not getting the opportunity to meet the recommended level of physical activity they need to stay healthy. 9 Million kids are completely inactive!
