BSN Sports & US Games
OPEN is a Public Service Organization made possible through the support of BSN Sports. In 2014, BSN Sports and its physical education division, US Games, made an investment in a curriculum project that would become the fastest-growing public service organization in the physical education and school health community. Today, OPEN serves more than 32,000 teachers worldwide and grows its membership base by more than 1,000 new teachers per month. A portion of every sale from US Games and BSN Sports helps to support the mission and work of OPEN.
