PlaySmart is proud to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that creates life-changing athletic and academic experiences for young people across the United States. Consisting of a dynamic group of friends, coaches and teachers, speakers and program leaders, volunteers and mentors, partners and proud founders, PlaySmart is at work year-round to ensure children are given the chance to learn and grow through sport.

As socioeconomic disparities often means that certain groups of children do not have access to quality athletic and academic programming, PlaySmart works by donation and with volunteers to level the playing field by offering opportunities and programming that foster positive youth development.

Participation in sports has significant positive impacts on children. It helps their physical and mental development, improves their self-esteem, and helps them grow into productive members of their communities. We are honored to help them succeed on and off the field!
