Bowling Green, Ky.—February 9, 2016—Children at the Boys & Girls Club of Bowling Green will soon be able to participate alongside collegiate athletes at Mid-South Conference (MSC) championships. Beginning this week at the MSC Bowling Championships, children from the Boys & Girls club will be bowling alongside the athletes.
MSC Commissioner Eric Ward said bowling with the Boys & Girls Club is the first of many future opportunities with the new partnership between the MSC and the Boys & Girls Club.
“When we bring a group of athletes to a community, we want to give back. Bowling Green hosts many of our conference championships and we want to give these kids the opportunity to meet our athletes, participate in clinics and get to know us,” Ward said.
About 25 children from the Boys & Girls Club of Bowling Green will be bowling at Southern Lanes with the MSC Bowling Championship athletes on Thursday at 4 p.m.
“Partnering with the Mid-South will give the kids more opportunities to get involved in local activities and get introduced to different sports that they may have not had the chance to play otherwise,” Pam McIntyre, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Bowling Green, said.
MSC is a nine full-member athletic conference associated with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletes (NAIA). For more please visit http://www.mid-southconference.org
