“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning.”  - Psychologist Jean Piaget

Youth sports are the backbone of communities providing gathering opportunities during the weekend to support and cheer young athletes. Play will occur in every corner of the country in urban, suburban, rural areas and on Native Lands.  Select National Governing Bodies (NGBs) will promote the value of sports sampling by providing youth opportunities to try new sports through clinics and open houses. While organized play is fun, free play is important, too. Young people and their families across the country are encouraged to engage in free play.
