Kids in the Game was founded in 2003 with one coach and a dream. Michael Murphy has always been dedicated to youth sports and fitness, and he wanted to make sure every kid had the same opportunities as he did growing up. With a bag of used basketballs and soccer balls, Kids in the Game was born. After years of on-the-ground coaching and meeting in hotel lobbies, Michael teamed up with Matt Murphy to build and grow what is now Kids in the Game. They have created running programs in dozens of communities around New York City for over 25,000 kids. This includes everything from after-school, esports, competitive sports teams, and summer camps. Ultimately, Kids in the Game’s goal is ‘to play today to change tomorrow’.
