When it comes to our children’s future, we are playing games.

Project Play: Western New York is driven and funded by the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation’s Youth Sports & Recreation focus area in partnership with the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and the Aspen Institute Sports & Society Program.

Our Mission 

Project Play Western New York envisions a community in which all children have the opportunity to be active through sports.

Every child—regardless of location, income or ability—should have access to fun and fulfilling physical activities that build confidence and set them on a path for lifelong success. 

Our Framework:

Project Play Western New York is modeled after Project Play’s “Eight Plays.” These are eight strategies identified by the Aspen Institute to help children become—and stay—physically active through sports.

  1. Ask Kids What They Want
  2. Reintroduce Free Play
  3. Encourage More Sport Sampling
  4. Revitalize In-Town Leagues
  5. Think Small
  6. Design for Development
  7. Train All Coaches
  8. Emphasize Prevention

For Families
