How Team Work makes the Dream Work!
Dear Family Members and Friends of Colorado Prospects Academy Boys Team,
Welcome to our Rally team campaign, we are very happy that you are taking a moment out of your day to hear our story of how we came to be! We are the boys’ basketball U17 league from the Colorado Prospects Academy located in Thornton, Colorado. We are a diverse team of nine players from all over Denver, with four seniors graduating this year. At least 5 of our players have been playing on the same teams for the past 3 years. All of us have been playing as young as 5 or 6 years old, and some of us even younger as soon as we picked up our first basketball! Our love and passion for the sport has gotten us through rough patches in our life but it also keeps us going, this team’s hard work and appreciation for the game cannot be felt anywhere else but on the court!
If you ask our players why we want to play for CPA, some of us might say it’s more than just getting playing time, it’s about listening to our team mates and coaches. We also are taught the value of accountability to the team and within ourselves. But our team is more than just a team, we are a family from start to finish. Those who have been associated and know CPA’s record know that 96% of student athletes who play with CPA receive basketball scholarships to play at the college level. This is how much CPA and our coaches believe in us and are willing to go above and beyond to help us prepare for college basketball.
We need your support and also ask that you please invest in us, we humbly request your financial sponsorship in support to help us get to two national basketball tournaments outside Colorado and several statewide tournaments in Colorado.
The 18K in funds raised will be split among our 9 team athletes to cover tournament fees, food, lodging and travel to get us there, that adds up to 2K per team athlete. We are already raising funds for our individual CPA registration fees of $1,350.00, which covers the cost of the gym where we hold practices and our team jerseys.
Each of us has a story to tell of how far we have come to love and play basketball so we each have created an individual page for you to visit if you already know us.
Our basketball season starts in April and go through July. We will be attending 2 national tournaments and half a dozen state wide tournaments in Colorado.
We are very grateful to the CPA Directors Tim Jones, Jorsua Chambers and Coach Daryle Conquering Bear who brought us all together! Coach Bear tirelessly challenges us and pushes us to push ourselves to be the best athlete we can be on and off the court. We also love and appreciate our parents who are working very hard to invest in our future by spending countless and thankless hours driving us to practice and taking us to our games. without their support of believing that we can achieve our goals and dreams, this wouldn’t be possible.
We invite you to share our story with others and help us to get an early start for this season, we don’t want to miss out on all the great opportunities that lay ahead.
We thank you for becoming part of our CPA family to help fulfill this dream together so we can make it to the next level of basketball.
Please follow us on Facebook, we hope to see you at our next tournament!
With much love and gratitude,
The CPA Boys Basketball U 17 Team
