June is Youth Sports Equity Month. Its purpose is to address the current inequities in youth sports participation.
The Youth Sports Equity Goal
Today, only 22% of kids from income-restricted families are playing youth sports, with cost being the reason why.
This can have a dramatic impact on the developmental skills that level the playing field of a kid’s life. Youth Sports Equity Month seeks to ensure every kid is exposed to the prosocial behaviors learned through youth sports, the responsibility and commitment cultivated through their involvement, and the strengthening of their individual emotional leadership through playing. Let’s bring equity to the lives of 10,000 kids this June.
