Back for its third year, the nation’s premier gathering at the intersection of youth, sport, and health expands to two days.


2017 Project Play Summit: Sept. 6 | 8am-4:30pm (reception to follow)
Knight Conference Center at the Newseum
555 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001

The first day of the 2017 Project Play Summit will bring together 350+ leaders from the eight sectors that touch the lives of children to take measure of the nation’s state of play, and chart next steps in building healthy communities through sport. The day will feature a series of thought-provoking panels, major announcements, and featured conversations with prominent athletes, grassroots innovators, and sport leaders, including Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred. The Summit has sold out more than a month in advance for each of the last two years, so do not wait to reserve your spot. More information on the first day (“The Summit”) is here.

Workshop day: Sept. 7 | 8am-2:45pm
The Aspen Institute
1 Dupont Circle NW, Washington, DC 20036

We hear you – you want tools, techniques, and a framework to mobilize stakeholders around improving the quality and quantity of youth sports activity in your local community. So, we’re adding a second, optional day to the Summit, to be hosted at the Aspen Institute. Sessions will be facilitated by Aspen Institute and other experts who can help attendees understand how to take measure of the state of play in their communities, and apply the five conditions of collective impact. More information on the workshop day is here.
