The National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) and the Congressional Youth Sports Caucus in celebration of National Youth Sports Week host a physical activity Expo in a House of Representatives Office Building on Capitol Hill Washington D.C. on NCYS Youth Sports Day, Tuesday July 16, 2019.
National Youth Sports Week has been added to the National Health Observances (NHO) calendar.
The purpose of the event is to showcase how youth sports organizations and members of Congress can collaborate to promote healthy lifestyles for children and their families through sports. The event features NCYS members and physical activity stations where members of Congress and their staff have the opportunity to play youth sports and learn about youth sports activities.
This kicks off a series of events at youth sports organizations across the nation to elevate the importance of youth sports. The NCYS seeks to level the playing field to enable all youth to have full access to sports. NCYS invites you to join in this celebration by calling attention to doing what you’re already doing – helping young people play sports.
