Rally for Youth Sport Thursday (weather permitting)

A rally for Youth Sports in Raytown will be held at Fun House Pizza on 350 on Thursday, February 6 beginning at 6:00 p.m., weather permitting.

Hall of Fame 2013 Inductee Mark McIntosh, motivational speaker, award winning athlete and sports announcer, will speak first, and then will introduce Dr. Allan Markley, Superintendent of Schools, to share his vision about the initiative.

The goal for the rally is to promote interest in bringing youth sports back into full swing in Raytown.

 I know that a community that provides plenty of sports and activity opportunities for youth is a strong community,” Markley said.  “We need a variety of things for our students to be involved in, but it cannot happen without community involvement.”

McIntosh, who graduated from Raytown South, agrees, and remembers fondly his active youth in Raytown.

“I felt the support of Little League coaches and sponsors all throughout my formative years.  It was like having 30 sets of parents, all encouraging me.  I want all youth to feel that same support and to have the chance to participate,” McIntosh said.  McIntosh has been rallying alumni from Raytown and other parts of the metro area to attend.

No reservations are necessary, but early arrival is suggested for seating purposes.

“Our goal is that the place is packed with people interested in youth sports,” Markley said.
