Annual report provides insightful perspectives on youth sports

The Aspen Institute's Sports & Society Program occupies a unique place in the landscape of sports. Its mission is to convene leaders, foster dialogue, and inspire solutions that help sport serve the public interest. Since 2011, the program has provided a venue where thought leadership and breakthrough strategies can be developed on a range of opportunities, from building healthy communities through sports to rethinking the model for college athlete pay.

The Aspen Institute produces events, reports and research that shape important conversations and help mobilize stakeholders for action, in the U.S. and other countries. Their signature initiatives are Project Play and the Future of Sports series. Project Play has been called the “conscience of youth sports.” The mission is to develop, apply and share knowledge that helps build healthy communities through sports. They seek to identify gaps and work with leading organizations to fill them so every child in America can access sports, regardless of zip code or ability.
