Harlem Globetrotters In Oshawa
Saturday April 14th, 2018 1:00pm and 6:00pm
@ Tribute Communities Centre
Our basketball community is teaming up with the Harlem Globetrotters to offer a great basketball experience for everyone to enjoy. n three short years we have seen our programs grow from one team to twelve and we are expecting those numbers to double by for the 2018 season. We have a no cut policy and believe any player of any level should be able to have a team to play for. All of our Dragons members receive free sports camps during the Spring, Summer and Winter Breaks as well as year round access to community programs in Oshawa, Courtice, Bowmanville and Newcastle.
Why We Are Raising Funds
- We are looking to manage the demand of basketball growth in our region by developing more coaches, staff and volunteers. Our gym usage has multiplied dramtically as we offer programs, events and competitions 5-7 days per week. The need for equipment, gym time and staff training continues to growth with each season. We want to make sure the quality of our programming can continue to match the demands for accessibility in our community.
How We Got Here
- Having started off as a single team of novice players in 2016, our goal was to give young kids in our community a basketball team to play for. The original Dragon's teams started something special in our community and from there we have seen our numbers multiply ten times over. We refuse to cut any players that were interested in joining our teams, as we believe that skill level, disability or any other limitations should not factor into your opportunity to play basketball and be part of a team and club.
- We have seen many obstacles along the way, as starting anything from scratch will have it's growing pains, however, our primary philosophy has been to remain posititive during times of adversity, and with that mindset we have continued to move forward, with great enthusiasm both on, and beyond the court.
- A special thanks to all of our sponsors, coaches and volunteers, who have helped us through these early years of development. We have a great community that deserves a quality basketball club for the children and youth to access no matter their skill level.
