One of the causes that the company supports is called PLAY. PLAY is a project that aims to lend a hand to kids with autism by helping them improve their social and functional development. PLAY has shown that teaching these kids basic skills in basketball and soccer can help them get involved in a normal school environment instead of having them sit on sidelines. This is done by teaching the kids simple movements of shooting, and passing.
