Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has partnered with Twin City Sports Association (TCSA) to serve as the official medical provider of the youth sports organization.
As part of the long-term agreement, Wake Forest Baptist is providing medical kits and CPR training for coaches and staff, along with proper nutrition, conditioning and injury prevention education to the children, teens and parents who are involved in TCSA programs.
“Youth sports offer such great benefits for those who participate in them,” said Chad Brown, president of Wake Forest Baptist Health – Davie Medical Center. “This partnership is a natural fit and will help us support the health, safety and physical fitness of young athletes, their families and members of our community.”
Artificial turf fields, walking trails and a playground, all carrying the Wake Forest Baptist name, are among some of the additions to TCSA’s soccer complex, located just west of Winston-Salem, in Davie County. The walking trails and playground will soon be open and will provide increased opportunities for anyone in the community to enjoy outdoor activities.
“Both of our organizations share many of the same values,” said Scott Wollaston, executive director of TCSA. “Our goal is to provide all of our players the opportunity to play to their potential, and this relationship with Wake Forest Baptist will certainly help us accomplish that.”
The Twins Foundation – which helps to ensure access for all players and their families – awarded more than $60,000 last year in financial assistance and scholarships to club families, and operates a community outreach program that helps improve fitness, self-esteem and social skills of local children with disabilities.
