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
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.
We are getting kids off the sidelines! Since 2010, The PASS has been a community outlet for low-income families by providing families financial assistance to get their kids in the game!
We have approved over 2,000 applications. Help us get to get to 1 Million!
KIDS in the GAME has partnered with PHIT America to increase physical activity at schools.
We are bringing AMPED, a school-based running program, to schools across America focusing on schools with little to no PE. We help schools because that is where kids spend most of their time.
Increasing physical activity at school teaches kids the power of movement. Check out AMPED, PHIT America’s #1 activity program!
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
PHIT AMERICA states, “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!
