Kansas City announces the 3rd annual PLAY Clinic
The Kansas City Royals in conjunction with the Office of Civic and Community Engagement, a division of the City Manager’s Office, will offer a free baseball PLAY (Promoting a Lifetime of Activity for Youth) clinic to Kansas City area youth, ages 10- 14. The event will be held on July 27 from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on the field at Kauffman Stadium.
The Royals PLAY Clinic provides boys and girls throughout the Kansas City area the opportunity to enhance their baseball skills, while also learning about the benefits of living a healthy, active lifestyle.
Councilwoman Melba Curls, who is an active promoter of building active communities, recently said, “The Royals PLAY Clinic is a great example of how Kansas City is getting on board with first lady, Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative. Programs of this nature can promote fitness and help stop childhood obesity.”
