An important part of SFIA's mission is to support our membership through programs and strategies that increase sports participation and influence public policy. Our Signature Programs reflect that commitment in several ways: by calling attention to volunteerism in grassroots sports; by sharing with our nation's legislators the robust assortment of products that characterize our industry; by focusing the spotlight on legislators themselves as they engage in a friendly footrace; and by engaging manufacturers, educators and retailers in lobbying efforts that will benefit sports across the board.
