Their passion for enhancing the sports experience and commitment to increasing participation aligns perfectly with our mission. By working together, we can create meaningful change and help ensure every child has the opportunity to reap the benefits of sports.”
In addition to Stack Sports, Project Play 2024 has attracted the support and collaboration of several prominent companies and organizations dedicated to promoting youth sports and well-being. Partners include Nike, the National Basketball Association (NBA), Augusta Sportswear Brands, the U.S. Soccer Federation, DICK’S Sporting Goods, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, and the American College of Sports Medicine.
Jeff Young, CEO of Stack Sports, also shared his enthusiasm for the collaboration: “At Stack Sports, we believe in the power of sports to create lasting positive impacts on young lives. Our partnership with the Aspen Institute and involvement in the Project Play 2024 roundtable are significant steps toward achieving our mission. We’re excited to work alongside such a dedicated organization, and together, we’re confident we can make a real difference in the lives of children through increased access to quality sports experiences.”
With this partnership, Stack Sports reaffirms its dedication to creating a positive sports experience for all children.
