Built around the theme “A New Scoreboard for Sports,” the 2017 Project Play Summit saw organizations make 33 commitments to action to improve youth sports. The nation’s premier gathering of leaders at the intersection of youth, sport and health sold out for the third straight year and featured more than 400 attendees. The hashtag #ProjectPlay trended nationally during the event.
Among the announcements was the roll-out of Project Play 2020, a multiyear effort by more than a dozen leading sport, health, media and other organizations to grow national sport participation rates and related metrics among youth. The featured conversation was with Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred.
