The Kids First Road Show aims to reimagine summer camp for kids with a focus on the Steel core values of Teamwork, Respect, Integrity, and Commitment. Open to children ages 7-13 of all ability levels, the summer camp will feature professionally-trained coaches teaching skills and fundamentals in a wide variety of sports including baseball, softball, soccer, flag football, volleyball and more.
Miami-based ModusLink, which focuses on global eCommerce and supply chain management, funded twenty scholarship spots at the camp for inner-city youth as part of their community-focused initiative. Company executives, including ModusLink president and CEO Fawaz Khalil, will visit the campers on June 20th.
"The Kids First Road Show allows us to carry on the great legacy of Baseball Hall-of-Famer and the inspiration behind Steel Sports, Tommy Lasorda," said Warren Lichtenstein, the Executive Chairman of Steel Partners. "Tommy knew that sports serve the great purpose of helping kids to thrive, build character, and learn valuable life lessons, while still having fun–and he would have been proud of this program's positive impact on the community."
Martin Brown, Steel Sports President and CEO, added, "By focusing on our core values, and emphasizing our coaching system, we aim to help kids build character and leadership skills that they will use both on and off the field. Community is one of the most essential aspects of our lives, and we want the kids at our summer camps to feel empowered to help their own communities."
