DOUBLE PLAY ATL WELCOMES
At Double Play ATL, we are driven by a single goal; to help kids who want to play but lack the gear. In our small way, we want to make the world a better place. We strive to build community relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits. Since 2017, with the help of our community and 31 partners including Dick's Sporting Goods, Westminster's Glenn Institute, and NYO, we have donated over 8,270+ pieces of equipment estimated at $90,970+(as of April 2022). Through our partnerships with Nike and Madewell, we have expanded our mission to recycle not just sports gear, but athletic shoes and jeans. These are turned into playgrounds and home insulation.
In 2020, we established the Double Play ATL Scholarship in partnership with Northside Youth League. This scholarship is to help kids who want to play but can't because of the financial impact of Covid-19 on their families. Using funds awarded to Double Play, we sponsored our first scholarship in November of 2020. In partnership with Dick's Sporting Goods, in 2022, in addition to sponsoring an athlete's registration fees, we will be providing gear as well. A special shout out to Dick's Sporting Goods!
Finally, with special thanks to YOU International, with funds awarded to us, we donated $250 to the Jordan Sloan GoFundMe, a local athlete in our community.
2021 has been our best year yet! Thank you to Popmenu for sponsoring us and for Roswell Recreation for donating 20 pitching machines. This is incredible!
2022 is off to a great start with over 1000+ gear donated and 150 bats alone in January and 300 athletic shoes collected in April!
We are all in this together. Let's go Atlanta!
