Playworks Twin Cities Partners with Minnesota Twins

  1. Updates

Playworks Twin Cities is thrilled to partner with the Minnesota Twins, who sponsored our Junior Coaches this year and hosted our Junior Coach Conference at Target Field in May. 

Through this partnership, the Minnesota Twins honored Playworks Junior Coaches from all nine Minneapolis and Saint Paul Schools on the field in a pre-game ceremony and provided enough tickets for each student to invite a parent or chaperone to join them to watch the game. 

In addition, the Twins hosted our 2nd Junior Coach Conference where we brought together all 120 Junior Coaches for day of team building activities, private tours of Target Field – including sitting in the dugout – and enjoying lunch while sitting behind home plate.

In appreciation for all their support – the Junior Coaches wish to send the Minnesota Twins a giant “woosh clap” and a heartfelt thank you!
