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 grants scholarships to single moms, families, caregivers and foster parents to pay for sports registration fees for kids 18 and under.

Paying for this is a small but potent investment.
Children engaged in organized physical activities reduce their risk of academic failure, substance use, early pregnancy, or forming habits that lead to health problems.
