The Pass is open
For the Fall season we are providing financial assistance for 9,000 kids. Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
At Every Kid Sports, we believe every kid deserves the chance to play sports. Why? The positive impact and outcomes experienced through participation, that’s why. Be it social connection, mental/emotional well-being, or physical development, so much is in play.
The #1 barrier keeping kids from income-restricted families out of youth sports is cost. By paying the registration fees required for youth sports participation, we’re providing access to everyone and everything in play.
We partner with individuals and organizations to fund our Every Kids Sports Pass. This program removes the financial obstacle of participation. Our goal is to help 100,000 kids from low-income families play youth sports. Together, we’ll make that dream their reality.
Researchers* estimate the average benefit-cost ratio for Social Emotional Learning interventions is 11 to 1. This means that, on average, for every $1 invested in Sports, there is a return of $11 due to improved health and increased work and earnings, as well as reductions in substance abuse, crime, and incarceration.
Cost is the issue. 33.4% of kids ages 6 to 12 from homes with $25,000 or less were physically inactive, compared to just 9.9% of kids from $100,000+ homes.
