In a country where obesity is the new normal it is not hard to find reasons why teaching kids physical activities are beneficial. However, youth sports have way more to offer our kids than meets the eye.

Madison County Warriors is an organization that is devoted to the development of our youth physically, psychologically and socially. I have created this fundraiser in support of the Madison County Warriors 4th Grade Boys Team.

About our team: The MC Warriors 4th Grade Boys Team first started playing together in the summer of 2013. At that time the boys were in 3rd grade. The boys had a hard time finding competition in their age group so quite often found themselves playing older teams. Throughout the summer the boys were able to travel to tournaments all over the Southeast United States and placed in and won many tournaments, often against the older teams. At the end of the summer they had accumulated 5 trophies and many titles. That is when the parents realized we seem to have stumbled upon something very special. These boys have a unique bond and team mentality that isn't found often in 9 and 10 year old boys. They were instantly family on and off the court. We weren't expecting it at the beginning of the summer, but the boys went on to participate in the Youth Basketball Organization of America's National Championships and placed 2nd in the nation. They accomplished all of this having only played together 4 short months.

The Need: These boys have talent that far exceeds their local competition. In order to grow athletically they need to travel to tournaments which becomes very expensive for their families. Without fundraising help they may not have the financial capability of competing. They would like to compete this summer as part of the Youth Basketball Organization of America and members of the Amateur Athletic Union. We would appreciate your support in helping these boys reach new heights in their development!
