About PLAYpass

PLAYpass is a program that aims to reduce barriers to fee-based participation in sport and recreation programs, so all Boulder youth have the opportunity to thrive and live healthy, active lifestyles.


PLAYpass awards eligible youth with $250 non-cash “vouchers” towards the cost registration for approved Service Providers’ sports and recreation programs.
