It’s not everyday that representatives of the White House ask you for your opinions on how to improve youth sports. But today is your BIG day! In fact, Executive Order 13824 details the administration’s aim to expand and encourage youth sports participation through its Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition. And now you have until April 1 to submit ideas through this link to the Department of Health and Human Services website. Executive Director Holli Richmond and the Council will then review your input and begin to roll out a national, state and local strategy. Don’t miss this chance to voice your thoughts, ideas, opinions.
