“We believe that all youth can benefit from a positive, inclusive sports culture that develops social and emotional skills, molds character and prepares them for competition and for life,” said Jason Sacks, PCA Executive Vice President, Business Development & Philanthropy. “TeamSnap has been an incredible leader in youth sport and been a true champion in helping kids return to play safely. We are thrilled to have such an engaged partner that shares our vision and commitment.”
