GEARING UP KIDS FOR A BETTER FUTURE
Under-resourced schools and programs reach out to us with needs.
We meet with them to access their needs and offer our expertise.
We fill wish lists from our Shed or Play Again Sports and wholesale partners.
Kids have gear to safely compete and develop life-long skills!
Hundreds of Chicago Schools & Programs have been hit with massive State and local budget cuts, leaving them with little to no funding for sports.
Youth Sports are on the decline in Urban areas due to the high cost of uniforms, footwear, and equipment necessary to outfit a team.
Urban students not involved in extracurricular activities are 57% more likely to drop out and are 27% more likely to use drugs or get arrested.
We estimate that we are only meeting 10% of the need in Chicago due to increasing demand.
