Our second annual report is the latest snapshot of how well stakeholders are serving children and communities through youth sports. The report includes the most recent youth sports participation data and coaching metrics from the Sports & Fitness Industry Association; exclusive analysis of 40+ key developments from the past year; and grades in each of Project Play’s eight “plays” or areas of shared opportunity. State of Play: 2017 also highlights one innovative organization that’s making a difference in each of our eight strategies, and identifies next steps in 2018 toward building the movement to make sport accessible and affordable to all. The report was released in December 2017.
