The NAofA is excited to announce our partnership with Every Kid Sports! We have always strived to work with our City Partners to keep our camps and programs affordable for each community, but sometimes families need a little more help. The Every Kid Sports Pass is available to qualified families that wish to participate in our NAofA Camps or League programs lasting 4-6 weeks.

The Every Coach program leverages a series of coaching books written by famed youth sports professional Aaron Locks as a resource for leagues to prepare their parent volunteer coaches better to manage, coach, and become a mentor to their teams. The NAofA is committed to building and presenting additional resources to support youth coaches worldwide as this program expands.

The NAofA has committed to donating 25% of all book sale proceeds to Every Kid Sports to help them continue to support underprivileged families. All kids deserve to play youth sports!

Every Kid Sports provides direct-to-parent funding to cover youth sports registration fees for kids who qualify for Medicaid, WIC, or SNAP. They encourage sport sampling, as research shows that playing various sports allows for greater physical literacy, better socialization, and greater physical and emotional enjoyment. It prepares kids for a lifetime of activity, connection, and positive experiences.

Any parent, guardian, or advocate of a child who wants to enroll a child in a recreational sports program and child qualifies for SNAP, WIC, or Medicaid can apply online. Applicants are approved within five to seven business days and, if approved, provided a digital debit card to allow them to register their child. Through their signature program, the Every Kid Sports Pass, qualified families can receive up to $150 three times a year, per child, for participation in recreational leagues.
