CHEVROLET GIVES BACK THROUGH YOUTH SPORTS
Chevrolet realizes that youth sports aren’t just about having fun and staying physically active; they also raise self-esteem, encourage academic success, and provide important life lessons. When I was young, I was a competitive swimmer and gained characteristics such as perseverance, teamwork, and learning how to win and lose with grace and dignity. Chevrolet wants to ensure that every child has a similar experience and that is why they are dedicated to youth sports. From sponsoring instructional clinics and donating equipment to refurbishing fields and providing uniforms, Chevy is helping to empower the next generation of major league talent, both on and off the field.
Since 2006, Chevrolet has been able to touch the lives of 6.7 million children by providing 1,636 free youth clinics, 9,400 league enhancements, and 136,000 kits donated. But Chevy isn’t the only person stepping up to the plate to help grow Chevy Youth Baseball. Andrew McCutchen, MLB All-Star and outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates stated, “I am thankful that I was able to achieve my dream and am excited to support Chevy Youth Baseball so that more of the dedicated and talented youth around the country have the same support and opportunity to make it to the big leagues.” Chevrolet proves time and time again that they are more than just a car producer; they are a company dedicated to improving the lives of those in the community around them. I encourage you to head to Chevrolet.com and find the closest Chevy Youth Sports clinic near you for your kiddos!
