For the second year in a row, Genesis is partnering with organizations that make an impact on children’s lives across the country, by increasing access to youth sports programs through the Genesis Gives initiative.

Physically active students are also shown to have improved cognitive performance, such as stronger focus and memory. It is shown that children who play sports get better grades and attendance at school. Children who participate in structured youth sports programs learn the additional benefits of teamwork and improved social skills.
