FLORIDA FLIGHT ELITE 5th Grade
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! THE FLORIDA FLIGHT ELITE basketball program started in September 2013 with the intent of helping underprivileged and sometimes forgotten kids learn life skills through basketball. As such, we were solely on team registration fees, fundraisers and donations while maintaining our 501C3 nonprofit status. Each child is taught the fundamentals of basketball from former college and professional basketball coaches in a safe environment conductive to learning, while striving to instill the importance of education, academic achievement and sportsmanship. It is important for our kids to stay academically strong, thus, we offer educational support in the form of free tutoring, mentoring, and counseling for those that are in need. During the year, we asked the parents that can afford to contribute extra funds to continue contributing to the program but it isn't enough. The rising cost of keeping a successful program afloat has overwhelmed us to say the least. For example, uniforms, shoes, notebooks, backpacks, equipment, insurance, league fees, lodging, transportation, and meals are a few of our required expenses. We pride ourselves in providing a positive experience for each child regardless of their socioeconomic status.+ Read More
After an successful run for YBOA states our 5th grade team finished in the championship out of 22 teams but will also tip my hat to Lakeland Fire who gave us a fight, and Powerhouse Bulls who played very intense and hard in the championship. Now, our continues to Nationals in Orlando. As a parent, I will ask to help us reduce the cost on the capital by donating to our GoFundMe account. Much appreciated!!!
