Support Oceana Girls Basketball

The Oceana Girls Basketball program is all about winning, on the court, but more importantly in life. The girls in the program strive for excellence on the court, in the classroom (the girls in the program have a 3.4 team GPA), and in the Pacifica/Daly City community; they develop self-confidence by learning to take chances and step outside their comfort zone; and they have established a culture of togetherness where the team is like a "second family." Last year, the girls generated enough enthusiasm to bring back the JV team, and bigger things are in store this season.

This year, we're planning to participate in the West Coast Jamboree, the largest girls basketball tournament in the country. The tournament is played in the East Bay from December 27-29, and we're hoping that this year the girls will be to able to experience the tournament as an overnight event by spending the nights between games near the tournament site. While we participated in the tournament last year, the experience will be significantly enhanced if we can convert the tournament to an overnight event (and eliminate the nearly three hour round trip drive each day). Perhaps more importantly, overnight tournaments are invaluable for team bonding and chemistry, and the girls typically view them as one of the highlights of the season. We have chaperones and a full itinerary of team bonding events in addition to the games, and have located discounted accommodations near the tournament site. We just need to raise the money to pay for the overnight lodging, meals and team bonding activities.

The school does not provide any money for these activities, so we rely entirely on the generosity of the community to enable the program to provide these experiences for the girls. Any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated, and will go directly to supporting Oceana Girls Basketball.

Go Sharks!!
