Youth Sports Participation for All!

Did you know that low income students are 3x less likely to participate in youth sports than their peers? And did you know that kids who participate in athletics are 60% less likely to drop out of school or resort to drugs and/or alcohol?

It is vitally important that the community comes together to break down the barriers keeping kids on the sidelines. Everyday students are coming home and asking their parents if they can get involved in athletics with their friends. And every day parents are forced to say no to their kids upon learning of the high cost of sporting equipment. In fact 1 in 5 underserved families do not enroll their kids in youth sports because of the price of participating. Every day we work to change that unfortunate reality and ensure that no matter what your economic situation is, EVERY child deserves to enjoy the mental and physical benefits that athletics have to offer. Our mission is simple:

Leveling the Playing Field gives underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports participation. We do this through the donation of used and excess sporting equipment to programs and schools serving low income communities. Our donations allow programs to allocate funds saved by lowering registration fees, expanding their scholarship programs, enhancing their existing athletic program or developing new ones.

Thanks for your support!
