LPF redistributes equipment to expand access and equity within youth sports and recreation programs in under-resourced communities.

Leveling the Playing Field was founded in 2013 in response to the growing inequity between those that can afford to play sports and those that cannot, and the prominent role the cost of sporting goods was playing in that gap. 


After working in youth sports, college athletics and professional football, our founder, Max Levitt, realized the volume of equipment that goes to waste from elementary school aged kids all the way up to our professional sports franchises.  In response, he decided to develop essentially a food bank for sports equipment.
