Special thanks to Target, a Project Play 2020 member, for supporting development of the Project Play Parent Checklists.

These concepts largely come from the Aspen Institute’s seminal report, Sport for All, Play for Life: A Playbook to Get Every Kid in the Game, which developed its framework from 300+ thought leaders. Additional experts and resources were consulted in developing the checklists: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Academy of Pediatrics, Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports, USA Hockey, U.S. Lacrosse, University of Minnesota, Playworks, President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, SHAPE America and Whole Child Sports.
