Our fourth 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; new survey results of youth sports parents from the Aspen Institute and Utah State University; 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 2019 also identifies resources and campaigns that national sport organizations are creating to grow youth sports participation. State of Play 2019 was released in September 2019.
