2. To convene stakeholders to make sure our city is doing all it can and working in collaboration.

How do we engage all kids, create best coaching practices,  and use existing resources

Improving access to sport for kids from lower-income families. Better coaches dialed into their social and emotional needs. Less physical and sexual abuse. Lower rates of overuse injuries. More nearby places to play, and wiser use of existing venues. More sport options. More room for pickup play. Better integration of community, club, and school sports. Less undue external pressure on kids to perform and more joy. Lower athletic development costs, and even better emerging elite athletes. (aspen Institute)
