Teamwork. Sportsmanship. Physical fitness. Healthy habits. When kids play team sports, they learn a lot. It shapes who they are and who they will be. But over the past decade, fewer and fewer kids are participating. Whether due to over-competition or increasing pressure from parents, the reason why is clear—kids are having less fun. And that’s a serious problem. Now, with many leagues cancelled due to COVID-19, many kids may never return to sports.

At GoGo squeeZ®, we believe every kid should have the opportunity to dribble, defend and kick the winning goal. That’s why we’re working with soccer legend Alex Morgan and other youth sports advocates across the county to make sports fun and accessible for everyone.
