In May 2019, we restored the power of free play with a variety of games, music, giveaways and more. The Project Play Western New York Free Play Challenge, hosted by nationally recognized play enthusiast Kevin Carroll, had something for everyone, from volleyball and soccer, to relay races, nature play and a bounce house. Guests had the chance to watch as their favorite pro sports alumni duked it out in dodgeball and local celebrities showed their competitive side in a two-square tournament. Check back for future dates and details.
Starting this fall, Project Play WNY will be hosting a series of coaches training sessions for WNY youth sport organizations. These sessions will be led by the Institute of Youth Sports and Dr. Dan Gould. Check back for dates, times and registration procedures.
Project Play WNY hosts conversations for families, coaches and youth sport organizations on how we can all work together to ensure that kids in our regions have an opportunity to be active through a quality youth sport experience regardless of zip code. Check back for future dates and details.
