Sport for All, Play for Life is the vision – but you can’t do it alone. Below are resources that can help you rally leaders and build healthy communities where you live, starting with access to quality sports experiences for all kids ages 12 and under, regardless of zip code or ability.


The Teamwork Toolkit, created in partnership with ESPN and Under Armour, is a first-of-its-kind digital platform that can help local leaders build healthy communities through sports. Explore modules and exercises to identify gaps in your community, develop a shared agenda, and plan for action.


The Aspen Institute has landscaped the state of youth sports at the city, county, regional and state levels. These reports provide essential data and insights for leaders, who have used them to shape grant-making, partnerships and policy. Explore our reports and see what questions we ask.


Leadership can come from any sectors that touch the lives of kids — community recreation groups, business/industry, education, national sport organizations, policymakers, parents, public health, and tech/media. Discover ideas that can help your sector make a meaningful contribution.
