Torero Baseball Partners with Urban Surf 4 Kids.

Oct. 16, 2012

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The University of San Diego baseball team spent this past Sunday at the Urban Surf 4 Kids-PaddleFest.  The inaugural stand-up paddleboard race and event expo was held at Bonita Cove in Mission Bay Park.  The Torero baseball team volunteered to assist with the race set-up, board and paddle handling and hosted a skills clinic for children in attendance. 


In addition to participating in the six-mile elite course, at the conclusion of the races Head Coach Rich Hill led a motivational talk to the entire group of participants.  Bret Harris, the PaddleFest Event Director remarked “I cannot thank you enough for coming out and bringing the team and speaking to the group. Everyone was fired up after your talk and I know the kids really enjoyed meeting the team and the baseball clinic”. 


RS Senior and Outfield/Catcher Austin Green frequently participates in outreach initiatives and gives back to the greater San Diego community in service.  What he enjoyed most about volunteering for Urban Surf 4 Kids was, “The smiles on the kid’s faces and feeling like I was making a difference in their lives!  All-American and Team USA Junior third baseman Kris Bryant understands the potential impact a role model can have on children and stated, “I really enjoyed interacting with the kids!  They look up to players like us and it is a great feeling when you are able to teach children a little something about baseball”.      


Torero Athletics partners with numerous organizations to provide learning opportunities for student athletes engaged in community service while educating them in social responsibility, service advocacy and leadership, and lifelong volunteerism by increasing awareness of community needs, resources and opportunities for social problem solving. 




Urban Surf 4 Kids is an outreach organization that works with orphan and foster kids. Using water sports that include surfing, sailing, kayaking and standup paddling as a catalyst, they teach kids how to have fun and experience water sports with confidence.   The kids who attend agree to provide 3 hours of community service through local service projects.  They then get to choose the water sport they want to participate in.  To better serve the 4,000 foster youth in San Diego and merely half of them graduating from high school all of the proceeds from this event will help fund developing a local after-school program and resource facility in 2012/2013.
