Support Play Like a Champion Today

This fall many kids experienced the joy of returning to play. It was a thrill to once again see families surrounding local fields! However, challenges remain. A number of children still have not returned after activities halted and many youth from low-income families saw their neighborhood leagues shut down and not re-open. Too many children across our country still lack a physical outlet to move and exercise, the support of a caring coach mentor and the camaraderie that comes from being a part of a team. Research reveals that kids who returned to sport experienced improved physical, mental, social and emotional health. 

Play Like a Champion is working to enable all our country's children the benefits of play. Our mission is urgent. Young people need sports and a team experience to rebound from the damages of the global pandemic. We are working to provide "A Team for Every Child" and to support coaches so that they have the tools and resources to provide a developmentally-focused sport experience for their athletes. We are also helping sport parents to navigate the new landscape for their young athletes.

Now more than ever, we depend on the generosity of those who share our vision. Please donate to support Play Like a Champion and help secure the future of these programs that have helped so many. Donations are secure and tax deductible. The Play Like a Champion Today Educational Series, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
