May 27 - Project Play Webinar: The Path Forward

The Vision

Start with the end in mind, as hard as that may be with so many near-term medical and financial challenges facing the country. It’s the year 2028, the Los Angeles Olympics are here, and we collectively — everyone who wants sports to help build the good society — have a story to tell about our state of play. We know the story the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee and local organizers aim to tell, as part of the Games legacy: Significantly increase youth participation in sports across the country.

Improved access to sport for kids from lower-income families. Better coaches dialed into their social and emotional needs. Less physical and sexual abuse. Fewer overuse injuries.
