Over the past year (2023) we launched two surveys to collect data and feedback from youth sports organizations and youth sport participants.  This data and feedback is helping us draft our common agenda - "Playbook" - strategic plan.  Once we draft our Playbook we will host several community engagement meetings in early 2025 to get feedback from the community. 

PlayAnnapolis reached out to 85+ community organizations to share our survey on their social media and email lists.  We collected 315 participant survey responses. Click on the button below to see the data from youth sport participants in the city of Annapolis.

Youth Sport Facts: Why Play Matters

"Project Play is anchored in the notion that all children and adolescents, regardless of zip code or ability, should have access to high-quality sport activity that allows them to develop as human beings. "
