Sports Philanthropy Newsstand, September 20, 2019

An amazing week of presentations and meetings at the Aspen Institute’s Project Play Summit. The need to change the way youth sports are handled in this country is truly an urgent need. So many kids give up sports at early ages because they don’t think that they are good enough (read as: proficient). No other aspect of our lives has us quitting at a stage we are still expected to be developing. As Tim Shriver from Special Olympics said, “You wouldn’t quit math or reading in 2nd or 3rd grade, just because you were not good at those subjects!”

We are working on more detailed coverage from the Project Play Summit so check our blog this coming week as we post more summaries and analysis of the various panels. So much content to digest and share and truly great thought leaders setting the stage for these discussions.

Tell us how you would convince a kid to continue playing sports?


Great image for this week:
