Youth Sports

Nike works with a range of organizations globally to give more kids a chance to get involved in youth sports.

Marathon Kids

Nike partners with Marathon Kids to engage kids in a positive, simple, goal-driven running program that challenges them to run the equivalent of up to four marathons (from 26.2 miles to 104.8 miles) over the course of a three-, six- or nine-month running club season or school year. Together, the goal is to reach over half a million kids across the country in the next two years.

Zoom League

In collaboration with the New York City Department of Youth & Community Development, Nike supports a city-wide basketball league promoting physical activity and teamwork through sport, fostering youth leadership and providing community service opportunities. The program benefits over 5,000 youth in NYC’s five boroughs.

Sport for All

In Europe, Nike works with community organizations and football clubs to give 3,900 kids the opportunity to get active. The program supports organizations in Istanbul, London, Milan and Moscow and focuses on helping kids overcome economic, intellectual and physical barriers to sport and physical activity.

Special Olympics

Nike partners with Special Olympics to host events and provide employee volunteers to increase access to sport and youth participation.

Bola Pra Frente

In Brasil, Nike partners with Instituto Bola Pra Frente to incorporate sport and physical activity play into a curriculum that gives kids the opportunity to learn and grow. The program gets kids moving while improving academic and life skills and has reached more than 15,000 kids to date.
