Efficient. Private. Proven. For over a decade, we’ve helped thousands of qualifying families get and keep their kids playing youth sports through the Every Kid Sports Pass.
Families can qualify for a grant of up to $150,4 times each year, to pay youth sports registration fees. Families must be registering for participation in a recreation-level sport hosted by a youth sports organization or school, that’s a minimum of 4 weeks in duration. This provides kids the opportunity to play multiple sports throughout the year, expand their physical literacy and social support networks, and develop as humans through sport with consistency and frequency.
Approved families will be provided a pre-loaded “smart” debit card through Chekspend, allowing you to register your kiddos in a private, efficient way. The debit card can only be used at the specific youth sports organization submitted during the application process.
