Sponsoring a Softball Team Is the Right Thing to Do

July 07, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

With all the budget cuts in our high schools, many of the freshman sports have been cut out of the sports programs. This is very unfortunate because softball makes school fun, and prevents dropouts. It gives the girls something to live for, and it keeps them coming back to school. Competition also helps breed future leaders, and we all know that there are more and more women owned small business and women who are moving up in the world. Who knows, we may even have a female president pretty soon.

As Hillary Clinton said; "we didn't break the glass ceiling this time, but there are about 18,000 cracks in it now." Since freshman softball is being cut out of the sports programs at the local high school one of the best things you can do is help to sponsor a softball team in a softball league. This solves the same problem, and it increases the teamwork mindset, and the competition these young women need to go onto do great things in the future.

If they are good at sports, and a practice hard they learn all the skills it takes to become successful members in our society. Sponsoring a softball team does not cost that much money. If you own a small business it's the least you can do, and you can put a picture of the softball team up in your business lobby, and your patrons can see that you are supporting the local community. Such goodwill and community involvement will increase your business, and provide you with more referrals.

Not only that, but sponsoring a softball team is the right thing to do, it's an activity and a sport for young people that has good qualities; teamwork, perseverance, goal setting, and passion. Make no mistake, those are qualities that are needed, and they are needed now more than ever before in our society. America is a nation of winners, and we need to develop our next generation of winners to move us forward in all industries and fields of human endeavor.

The team members you sponsor today may be the ones paying the taxes which pay for your Social Security and pension tomorrow. They will be our future leaders, and they will hold the traditions that we value in the United States, all those things which have helped us build this great nation. Show your passion for community spirit by sponsoring a softball team today. Go online and find out who to contact in your local area, so you can do your part and be part of the solution. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
