Impacting the National Conversation on Youth Sports

Even before becoming 2-4-1 CARE, 2-4-1 Sports participated in spreading the message of Sport Sampling and Physical Literacy alongside First Lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama’s message aligned with 2-4-1's life philosophy on the importance of play and healthy nutrition.

In her speech Mrs. Obama shared, "We're not developing our next generation of kids and competitors..." She and her brother Craig (a former Division 1 Basketball Coach now with the NY Knicks organization) went on to share their joy of playing multiple sports growing up in Chicago.


Letter of Support from U.S. Senator Chris Murphy

Letter of support from U.S. Senator, Chris Murphy.

We were humbled to receive such a kind letter from a United States Senator congratulating us for our recognition by the Aspen Institute's Project Play. Since this recognition, our reach has grown significantly in and around underserved communities in Connecticut and around the United States.


Project Play Champion

Recognized as one of 8 model programs in the United States in the original Project Play report (for sport sampling), 2-4-1 has since been recognized as a Project Play Champion.

A Best Summer Camp in Connecticut

After being voted Best Summer Camp in 2014 in the Hartford Courant's Reader's Pole, 2-4-1 Sports Camp has most recently been recognized as a Best Summer Camp once again in 2020 and 2021. Besides how popular our play-based sport sampling camps have been, based on feedback from parents and the community, we believe much of this recognition also occurred because of our response to COVID-19. To see a story by NBC30 regarding our efforts in this area.
