The National Council on Youth Sports is celebrating National Youth Sports Week this year from October 24-29 — a time to showcase how communities can promote healthy lifestyles for children and families through sports. Get involved by sharing our National Youth Sports Strategy
, the first federal road map with action steps for increasing participation in youth sports. You can also use our National Youth Sports Strategy Partner Promotion Toolkit
and Move Your Way sample social media messages and graphics
to encourage parents to get their kids more active. And if you’re interested in national efforts to improve health, fitness, and quality of life through regular physical activity, check out the Healthy People 2030 Physical Activity objectives
. Finally, be sure to share our Play for Fun, Build Skills for Life video
, which highlights the many benefits of sports that go beyond physical health — like teaching kids about teamwork, focus, and other important life skills.
