(Greendale, WI) Twi Nite announced support from the WE Energies Foundation for its third annual Girls Sports Showcase. The event is a direct response from local parents concerned about the lack of opportunities for young girls to participate in team sports. Beginning in 2018 the parents gathered together along with college players and coaches to host an evening in which middle school girls could learn about the many benefits associated with participating in team sports.
Since first hosting the event, Twi Nite has watched enrollment in its girls softball teams skyrocket. The organization added five teams in 2018 and registered over 70 players in 2019. Opportunities are still available for corporate and non-profit partnerships in 2020.
Dave Blask, Commissioner of Greendale Twi Nite stated “We’re thankful for the support of the WE Energies Foundation and our many partners.” Twi Nite partners helping to promote the Girls Sports Showcase event include DICK’S Sporting Goods, J&J Contractors and MINT Hydraulics among others.
Blask urges parents to check the Twi Nite website regularly for information on the 2020 showcase event taking place in late February.
Greendale Twi Nite has grown to become Metro Milwaukee’s largest coed youth sports organization with players from 14 area communities. At Twi Nite it’s all about the kids, the organization which manages Spring and Summer baseball for two local park and recreation departments, also coordinates select teams, fall ball and special training clinics for coaches, umpires and players throughout the year.
