Global data intelligence company, Morning Consult, and youth sports sponsorship platform, LeagueSide, surveyed hundreds of youth sports program organizers and parents about how they have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and what a return to play might look like. Key findings include nearly half of youth sports organizations are in danger of shutting down permanently, and more than half of parents are less likely to enroll their children in youth sports in wake of the pandemic.
Topics of Insight:
  1. How youth sports organizers view the future of their programs
  2. How organizers’ expectations for a return to play compare to those of parents
  3. Will parents be comfortable with their kids returning to play before there’s a COVID-19 vaccine?
  4. Are parents willing to provide additional support to youth sports organizations to help them through the coronavirus crisis?
  5. Q&A
