Chicago, (July 26, 2022) - TeamSnap, the leading provider of team management software and online community for everything youth sports, today announced its CEO Peter Frintzilas has joined the PLAY Sports Coalition's (PLAY Sports) Board of Directors.
PLAY Sports, which stands for Promoting Local and Youth Sports, seeks to unite sports-based youth development organizations and build alignment in the critical areas that are impacting these organizations the most. The PLAY Sports Coalition is a movement representing more than 3,600 national and local youth sports leaders focused on ensuring that youth sports survives and thrives, and providing support and resources in the areas of funding, advocacy and movement building.
"TeamSnap's commitment to driving policy changes through TeamSnap Impact is strategically aligned with the PLAY Sports Coalition's mission to ensure youth sports programs in underserved communities thrive," said Peter Frintzilas, CEO of TeamSnap.
TeamSnap recently launched TeamSnap Impact, a program dedicated to tackling the major problems facing youth sports, including affordability, gender equality, access to quality coaching and more. TeamSnap is dedicated to enacting positive change in youth sports through the pillars of policy, technology grants, and direct funding. Aligning with this mission, Peter's position on the PLAY Sports Coalition board allows TeamSnap to be an active leader in the formulation of the high-level policy, regulations, guidelines, and plans affecting youth sports.
"We are thrilled to have Peter join the PLAY Sports Coalition Board of Directors. His perspective and roots in the youth sports landscape will be tremendously valuable as we work to shape high-level policy, regulations, guidelines, and plans affecting youth sports," said Benita Fitzgerald Mosley, OLY, Executive Director of PLAY Sports Coalition.
Showcasing the power of PLAY Sports Coalition's leadership & grassroots members, in March 2021 they effectively advocated for an allocation of tax revenue from mobile sports betting in the state of New York to go to youth sports nonprofits. Through this effort, a grant program started this year from 1% of this tax revenue, and going forward $5 million per fiscal year will be allocated directly to the program.

"The allocation of tax revenue to youth sports nonprofits is a huge win for youth sports in New York," continues Frintzilas. "We are extremely proud to join forces with this group of leaders and game-changers in our industry and communities. I look forward to having a seat at this table and being able to engage in impactful conversation on how to bring the benefits of youth sports to children who are too often not able to join sports leagues due to socioeconomic status and other factors outside of their control."
