ESPN wants to help provide students with access to sports in schools across the country! Sports participation is a critical catalyst for educational success; it's been shown to improve academic performance, cognitive skills, educational aspirations and educational achievement.  Qualifying sports and fitness projects can receive half-off their total project goal from ESPN.

Here's how to qualify:

  • Create a Standard project that requests resources or experiences that give your students the opportunity to play sports while they learn!  
  • Resources requested must help your students play a specific sport.  Broad fitness-related materials (such as clothing, jump ropes, or beanbags) may not qualify.
  • This offer will not support stability balls, active seating, or technology like fitbits or fitness trackers.
  • Select a “Health & Sports” subject area (Health & Wellness, Nutrition, Gym & Fitness, or Team Sports)
  • Project does not need to support an extra-curricular team--it can be for PE, recess, or something else!  As long as the equipment you request get your students playing a sport, you have a good shot at qualifying.

 Create your project

Projects that meet the above criteria will be considered for this offer by the team working with ESPN within about 2 weeks.  This opportunity will last while funding remains.
