About Double Play Atlanta
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!
