Making sure ALL kids get in the game!
Sports - particularly youth sports - have the potential to contribute so much more to our society than they are being asked or funded to do.
The intentional use of sports has the ability to bring people together across racial, religious, and socio-economic lines. Sports has the ability to support areas associated with public health, violence prevention, education, civic engagement, and social justice is immense.
Recognizing the need to collectively re-imagine the role and benefits of youth sports in society, MYSA was created to:
Unite the youth sports community in advocacy for sports as a tool for social change
Improve coordination between youth sports stakeholders
Gather best practices, share research, and evaluate impact
Offer training and technical assistance
Increase the amount of funding and resources
