Play Marin provides sports and other extracurricular activities to intentionally give kids of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to learn and grow together through play.
With the goal of closing the activity gap in Marin City while promoting diversity and inclusion throughout Marin County, Play Marin started 8 years ago with one Marin City basketball team of 9 players.
Today, Play Marin reaches more than 300 kids annually throughout Marin with our mission of diversity and inclusion through Play.
PLAY MARIN envisions Marin as an integrated and unified community. The lessons learned through the play and experiences we provide instill valuable skills, create friendships, and enhance well being and solidarity among the young people of Marin, improving their prospects for a successful future and benefiting the health of our broader Marin community.
