Augusta Sportswear Brands is proud to join and support the PLAY Sports Coalition as a strategic partner. Through this unique and impactful coalition of major players across the youth and team sports landscape, we strongly believe that this movement has the power to unite us all and enact meaningful change to ensure that youth sports across the country survive and thrive when the time is right to return to play.
PLAY Sports, which stands for Promoting Local and Youth Sports, is a coalition of community and national sports organizations and leaders formed to support young athletes, working families, coaches, and volunteers across all 50 states through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Their mission is to “ensure that youth and local sports survive and thrive coming out this pandemic” because, through its absence, we are reminded of the power of sport and the benefits they bring to youth, families, and communities.
The PLAY Sports Coalition is asking for us all to do our part, with the first and time-sensitive step being to reach out to local Congressional representatives either by calling, emailing, or tweeting to show support for HR-7562, which would provide relief to youth sports organizations and working families. Their easy-to-use form is available here.
