Coaching Corps Makes National News!

Our recently released issue brief, Tackling Childhood Obesity: Parents Weigh In is highlighted in this article about Title IX and low-income girls from ESPNW!

“The survey results point to a proverbial tale of two nations when it comes to school children’s participation in organized after-school sports activities in America,” wrote the authors of the report, commissioned by Coaching Corps, a California not-for-profit group that trains youth coaches in underserved areas. “A full 63 percent of children from low-income families (incomes under $50,000 annually) are shut out from participating in after-school sports. This is in sharp contrast to the 64 percent of children from the highest income families who take part.” The report also notes that a lack of available programs is a particular problem for low-income girls.
