Partnership with Wausau Woodchucks Provides Amazing Free Opportunities for Local Youth Baseball and Softball Clinics

Since 2010, 15 participating Central Wisconsin Chevy Dealers have been dedicated to raising funds for local baseball and softball youth leagues. Their ongoing commitment to supporting the community has resulted in an impressive total of $360,790 raised since the inception of the program. This remarkable achievement includes contributions towards equipment, donation checks, and successful fundraisers.

As part of their continued efforts, Central WI Chevy Dealers is delighted to announce their collaboration with the Chevy Youth Baseball & Softball Program once again this year. Through this partnership, the Wausau Woodchucks Clinics will be brought to the local community, providing invaluable opportunities for young athletes to develop their skills and love for the game.

Mary Jo Wheeler-Schueller, President of WI Chevy Dealers, emphasized the positive impact of baseball and softball on youth development, stating, “Playing baseball and softball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. The 15 dealers that make up WI Chevy Dealers are proud to partner with Chevrolet Youth Baseball & Softball and participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in the area.”

“Chevrolet believes in the power of play as a way for young people to build the skills needed to be successful in the future and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball and softball instills in its players,” added Wheeler-Schueller.
