S.C.O.R.E. EDUCATION PROGRAM
S.C.O.R.E is the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club's youth education and recreation initiative. The program focuses on School, Community, Opportunities, Role models and Excellence, using the acronym S.C.O.R.E.
S.C.O.R.E. is designed for players, alumni and front office personnel to serve as ambassadors for increasing the impact of our youth outreach efforts throughout the year. Through school visits, kids are able to learn from members of the Brewers organization, providing special moments that they will always remember. The S.C.O.R.E. program will continue to be presented in the future at most assemblies that involve interaction between Brewers staff and area children. Brewers personnel every year make hundreds of appearances at youth-oriented events.
S.C.O.R.E. FOR EXCELLENCE DAY
presented by Gordon Flesch
S.C.O.R.E. for Excellence Day presented by Gordon Flesch is a joint venture with local schools designed to motivate middle school students to excel in academics, attitude and attendance. S.C.O.R.E. for Excellence Day presented by Gordon Flesch is a one-day morning visit held in May. Brewers players, coaches and front office staff visits approximately 30 middle schools in the Wisconsin area, touching the lives of more than 15,000 youths. They speak to students about the importance of school and community: taking advantage of opportunities, seeking positive role models and striving for excellence in education. Key to the presentation is the use of five baseballs. Each baseball is designed with one of the S.C.O.R.E. character messages printed on the side. During the program, the players engage children in a dialogue about the importance of these five important elements. It is a fun program that opens communication between the children and their role models. In addition, all students participating in the program receive a T-shirt and bookmark to remember the day.
