Summary

There are countless statistics linking a youth's involvement in sport to both their emotional and physical health, and yet too many children don't have the resources to participate. No child should sit on the sidelines! The National Endowment for Youth Sports will raise more than $100M over the next decade to provide annual and ongoing grants for youth sports programs throughout the United States, and especially programs targeting girls and children in economically-disadvantaged areas. Join us.

Challenge

On February 27, 2018, President Trump signed an Executive Order on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition, aimed at expanding and encouraging youth sports participation. The President's Executive Order calls for the identification of public and private sector strategies to increase participation in youth sports and physical activities. The National Fitness Foundation has been tasked with cultivating and encouraging financial support for the President's Executive Order.

Solution

The National Endowment for Youth Sports is the long-term solution to funding four major projects supporting youth sports in America: 1. The Presidential Youth Fitness Program 2. The National Youth Sports Facilities Program 3. The National Youth Sports Volunteer Program 4. The National Youth Sports Equipment Program All of these projects support access to, and expansion of, youth sports in America, and will be funded through the National Endowment for Youth Sports.

Long-Term Impact

The project is creating a national funding mechanism to actively support all of the programs supported through the National Endowment for Youth Sports. It will encourage youth sports participation at a time when the U.S. is experiencing a decline in youth sports engagement. The Fund will help ensure trained sports volunteers and staff, access to equipment and facilities, and help eliminate the financial disparity among young athletes who wish to participate in sports.
