Help These Hoop Girls
Organized by: Riley Prince
I first started coaching these girls two years ago, when they were only 10 years old. They were losing every game by 20 points, and their confidence was suffering so bad it was seeping into other aspects of their lives. Today, these girls are winning at the most elite level in the area, but most importantly, they have grown into confident, self-assured, hard working young women. Basketball has transformed their lives, while teaching them invaluable life lessons. Sadly, most of these girls come from less than privileged families, so as a whole we lack the funds to pay the fees for our gyms and tournaments. These girls have come so far. For many of them, basketball can provide the scholarships they need in order to attend the college of their dreams, but they stand to lose that all if cannot raise the money we need to stay together as a team.
