The St. Louis Sports Commission invites you to participate in an innovative program fostering civility, respect and selflessness among young people. Inspired by the great Stan Musial, the organization is excited to offer the remote version of its exceptionally successful “Musial Moments” program designed to instill the qualities of sportsmanship on and off the field. Presentations are led by Solomon Alexander, director of the Sports Commission’s affiliated St. Louis Sports 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 maximize the program’s impact, sessions are available to groups of 50 or more. We invite you to enroll a group of any size 50+ that works best for you–multiple classes, grade level(s), sports team, student club, or the entire school. Please provide at least two weeks notice in advance of your first preferred date of interaction.
Minimum Group Size: 50
