US Play Coalition

US Play Coalition Logo

The US Play Coalition is a partnership to promote the value of play throughout life. Since 2009, we have grown an international network of more than 2,500 individuals and organizations that recognize play as a valuable and necessary part of a healthy and productive life. Our membership is diverse – including educators, parents, physicians, health scientists, park and recreation professionals, psychologists, landscape architects and many more. Membership is free, and simply requires a declaration of shared commitment to the value of play.
