OUR
MISSION

The Over Under Initiative is a non-profit dedicated to increasing access to sport by converting public basketball courts and blacktops into multi-sport play spaces. We believe accessibility to sport is the most impactful way communities can address the health crisis kids in the United States are facing. That’s why we’re working with cities around the country to #openplay for the kids in their communities.

OUI was founded by Kyle Martino following his run for U.S. Soccer President. As he traveled the country listening to local communities, he became acutely aware of the steady drop in participation his sport was experiencing, and the national health crisis borne of that phenomenon. Further research and understanding helped to reveal this issue of consequence was not just soccer-specific, but part of a larger youth sports epidemic.
