Inspire Sportsmanship In Your Group as Part of Stan the Man’s Legacy
The St. Louis Sports Commission has created an innovative program fostering civility, respect and selflessness among young people in our region. Inspired by the great Stan Musial, the organization is visiting schools in the metro area to introduce the concept of “Musial Moments” and to instill the qualities of sportsmanship on and off the field. Presentations are led by Solomon Alexander, the director of the Sports Commission’s Sportsmanship Foundation. Through a fun, interactive and impactful 45-minute session, Solomon motivates students to care about sportsmanship and to be good to those around them – just as Stan the Man did during his illustrious career and life.
Presentation Elements Include:
- A history lesson on Stan Musial opening young eyes to his relevance, excellence, humility and generosity.
- A viewing of contemporary examples of extraordinary sportsmanship that inspire and uplift.
- An introspection of why we play sports and what matters on the playing field and in life.
- An interactive call to action for audience members to create their own Musial Moments – acts of kindness and selflessness that take place in competition or everyday life – all with the goal to help one another and make our community better.
To bring Musial Moments to your school or organization, call 314-345-5130 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding from Sports Commission supporters enables this program to be offered at no cost to participating groups.
Musial Moment presentations are geared for young people in third grade through high school. To maximize the impact of the presentations, we suggest that participating groups have at least 200 in attendance.
