At the 2015 Project Play Summit, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation announced that it would be convening a sport-for-development collective impact coalition to create a framework for stakeholders to work together effectively in order to improve opportunities for youth in New Orleans. 

In September, Laureus hosted a Sport for Good weekend in New Orleans that began with a Project Play training session for the city-wide coalition of youth sports providers. Laureus released a state of youth sports and physical activity report that addressed the needs of children in the Orleans Parish and included profiles of local children, authored by the Aspen Institute and journalist Hugo Kugiya, whose lives hang in the balance.

Also that weekend, I moderated a lively panel at Tulane University that focused on the challenge of retaining girls in sports. Participating in the dialogue were Olympic champions Allyson Felix (track) and Kelly Clark (snowboarding), former Saints running back Deuce McAllister, and Playworks chief marketing officer Tonya Antonucci.

Check out video highlights from the panel, which addressed the racial gap in participation rates among white, African American and Hispanic girls and challenges of retaining girls in general as they move into the teenage years.

Last month, led by the USTA, 45 leading sport organizations released a statement in support of multi-sport play. Earlier this week, we convened many of those groups at the US Open to further explore opportunities to collaborate around a multi-sport message and to ask, "what's next?"

I cant wait to hear about new developments.  I'm creating an awareness about movement being a behavior pattern coupled with care for our environment. #PhysicalLiteracy
