EQUIPMENT SHARING FOR ALL
SportPort – is a new equipment sharing pilot program that will provide kids with free and accessible sports equipment.
Trained coaches offer games, activities and healthy snacks to children between the ages of 5-13 in neighborhoods, parks, churches, and schools. Not enough children are given the chance to participate in sports. Our goal is to make sure every child – regardless of location, income, or ability – has the opportunity to get in the game.
There are a number of reasons for your child to sample a variety of sports. They can discover the joy of playing a new sport or learn to play a variety of sports, which will help them develop new athletic skills and, overtime, can help prevent injuries and the burnout that can come from playing just a single sport continuously.

We currently have 15 community partners across southeast Michigan that allow youth, families, parents, guardians and caregivers to borrow sports equipment, like just as easy as borrowing a book from the library.
