NRPA Resources Available To Help Grow Parks & Rec Play for Kids
The National Recreation & Parks Association (NRPA) recently unveiled online resources to “support agencies in increasing engagement with youth sports offerings.”
“Park and rec youth sports give kids a welcoming place to have fun — the #1 reason kids say they play sports in the first place.”
The NRPA’s resources include:
- An interactive website that demonstrates the benefits of park and recreation youth sports;
- A downloadable conversation guide for families to connect with their child about which sports they might like to play; and
- Sample messaging so park and recreation professionals like many PLAY Sports Coalition members can easily share the new content with parents and caregivers in their communities.
