When it comes to our sports,

All are Welcome – No Exceptions

For many kids, sport is the perfect dress rehearsal for real life. Kids solving their own problems and making their own decisions leads to better mental health. Kids remaining active and vibrant leads to better physical health. And kids learning how to communicate and interact with one another leads to greater social competence and confidence.

Youth sport has significant downstream benefits off the field, particularly in daily life and in the workforce. Studies show that sport teaches kids how to communicate together and work cohesively in groups – and this is especially true for girls and women.

Fortune magazine reports that over 80% of female Fortune 500 executives played a team sport at some point in their lives.

Movement, play and sport have benefits that extend well beyond sport itself, beyond those in sport, and beyond those whose kids play sport.

Done right, sport benefits all of us.
