MASSE PROMOTING YOUTH IN SPORTS: In partnership with Windsor West Little League, Nantais Athletics Inc. & The University of Windsor
WINDSOR – Brian Masse M.P. (Windsor West) and the Windsor West Little League (WWLL) are hosting a baseball clinic for children ages 4-17 this Saturday, March 25th from 12 PM to 2 PM at the Toldo Lancer Centre, 2555 College Ave.
As a long-time local sports institution, WWLL has provided a fun and supportive environment for the youth to play baseball in Windsor West since 1956. We are fortunate that generous donations to the U of W have been made by IG Wealth Management for the use of the Toldo Lancer Centre for community groups through their IG Empowerment Program. The University of Windsor will be providing healthy refreshments for all youth participating in the event. Thank you to the many community partners such as the Windsor Police Community Service Branch, Steve Pronger with Take a Shot Sports, as well as Mike Dugal with ASSIST Group who will be in attendance.
Take a Shot Sports is a community-based sports program that offers free skills training and game play development for youth between 8 and 11 years of age who have definite barriers of entry into the sport.
ASSIST Group has been helping youth participate in sports since 2007, a grassroots group of people with a lifelong passion for sports committed to raising funds to help kids experience the joy of participating in organized games.
Windsor Police Services’ Community Service Branch officers will also be available to raise community awareness of policing issues to gain greater community support and involvement.
“Since 1999, I have personally supported Windsor West Little League, as I truly believe that sport is a valued activity that can be used to promote physical activity and positive youth development while nurturing the qualities and attributes to build self-confidence.” stated Masse.
Windsor West Little League is based out of Mic Mac park in Windsor, with Divisions ranging from age 4 to 18, along with Girls Softball/Fastball teams. WWLL is Baseball league run strictly by volunteers. In supporting this initiative, the goal is to attract more youth in Windsor West to register for Little League baseball. www.wwll.ca
