NEWPORT, R.I. – Members of the Salve Regina University baseball and softball teams will team up against members of the Newport Police Department for the Fourth Annual Choices Softball Game on Friday, Sept. 28 at 6 p.m. at Cardines Field.
Admission is free and includes promotional giveaways throughout the game.
The softball game is part of the Seahawks' NCAA CHOICES grant program. Through the CHOICES program, the NCAA provides funding for NCAA member institutions and conferences to integrate athletics into campus-wide efforts to reduce alcohol abuse.
Using the description of programs provided by the NCAA, Salve Regina University developed SSRC, Salve Students for Responsible Choices. SSRC was designed to create an environment at Salve Regina University that encourages all students to make responsible decisions and to promote healthy lifestyle choices.
In addition to bringing in nationally-renowned speakers on alcohol education, Salve Regina has programmed special events such as Nintendo Wii tournaments, Mr. Seahawk competition, and others with its Choices funding.
