Instructional Basketball Camp

$550 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 34 months
For a few years now I always wanted to offer kids in the mercer county area a instructional basketball camp on Saturdays for free. I've been doing instructional basketball classes in Hopewell for the YMCA for over 6 years now and always felt like I should be doing the same in the areas in Trenton, Hamilton, Ewing. I've talked to a few guys who played basketball in all these areas and they want to help as well.  I'm trying to raise $1000 to buy basketballs and equipment to allow us to affectively teach the kids all aspects of the game of basketball. After doing this camp I would also like to branch out to other sports such as football and baseball if possible.  Although the ultimate focus is sports, we will also have motivational speakers come out and talk to the kids about the importance of education.  The majority of the staff that's volunteering are either getting their masters degree or have them.  We will hopefully become role models to these kids so if they do ever need advice whether it's school or life situations they wouldn't hesitiate to call.  I will be doing a trial run with the kids before we actually do the instructional basketball camp just so the parents and kids have a idea of what we plan on doing.  If you are from the area and want more info please don't hesitate to contact me on Facebook Markeyse Page.  Hopefully we can raise the money and get the equipment we need and start the camp.
