School is out and the summer is here!
Its been an eventful 1st half to 2017…everything from the name change of our #USAB squad…the start of the year with the #3v3 #every1plays Winter League…new #HoopDreams jerseys…our first attempt at sponsorship…new players on the roster…opportunities & new responsibilities on and off the court for the coaches…involvement from parents who helped us find new spaces to practice…the ups and downs of losing, getting better, winning, and losing again in the city league…and all the ideas we have to merge basketball & education for youth in the city and inform ourselves & others about resources that are out there.
There’s a lot to be grateful for…a lot to plan for the future and much more to document when time allows. We’re most grateful this year for all the young people on the squad that showed up to play til’ the end. As we get ready to transition into the summer months, we look forward to those moments when we can reflect again and share our thoughts. We look forward to continuing to brainstorm and contribute ideas for how to open up more opportunities for kids to play and learn from not only the game of hoop, but the values of the game and other life lessons.
We wish everyone a wonderful summer…make it one worth reflecting back on when the Fall arrives!
