Help support youth basketball team this summer

Donation protected

My name is Mel but the boys call me "Coach M". I’ve been running an AAU high school basketball team called “Positive Energy” for the past 6years. We have had success over the years winning 2 championships. The team spends the summer participating in various tournaments around the 5 boroughs. Most of the boys come from different neighborhoods which brings diversity to our group and I admire that these boys can come together and have winning success despite the negative things around them off the court.

I independently fund the team and have been the entire time. However expenses do catch up to you when you are operating alone. fundraising goal is 3,500 in order to cover tournament expenses which consist of league fees, referee fee, and travel fare. Please consider helping these boys this summer as we continue to use basketball, as a tool and safe place to express themselves as they stay safe and active this summer.
