All IN Sports Leagues

Impact video by Innovative


Playworks developmental sports Leagues are one of four of our direct service program components. During the 2020-2021 school year, Playworks had to scale back our after school programming, including Leagues, due to restrictions of the pandemic. But we have bounced back in a big way!

As we prepared for the 2021-2022 school year with the ability to bring back these afterschool components, we wanted to revamp our Leagues to ensure we were making the greatest impact for our students whose access to these kinds of programs were severely limited because of the pandemic. Enter Indiana Sports Corp (ISC). With both of our organizations dedicated to using sport and play to advance Indiana communities, we found a natural fit to collaborate with the launch of All IN Sports Leagues.

Last school year, this new partnership created 350 opportunities for play across soccer, flag football, girls basketball and kickball leagues. 93 percent of the participating students said they would recommend the program to a friend, and 88 percent of students showed growth in core social and emotional skills, which we measured with the help from our friends at Hello Insight. Our coaches are well equipped with curricula, a caring attitude, and educational strategies to create playful environments where kids can thrive. 90 percent of participants in the program felt that the adult leaders expected them to try hard and do their best, while 79 percent felt those adults also took time to better understand their lives outside of the program.

“Nothing beats being a part of a team. All IN Sports gives students an inclusive opportunity to practice teamwork and sportsmanship, while also exposing them to a wide variety of motor skills and games. After school environments that encourage play, hands-on learning, the freedom to make mistakes, and celebration is an experience we hope to bring to students across Indiana.” Nicholas Pointer, Playworks Program Specialist
