Blackboard & Backboards
We understand that being a student athlete is challenging. In today’s society, success has two meanings for student athletes…excel in sports as well as excel in the classroom. We believe that instilling our youth with the essential academic, organizational, and time management skills are components of a great STUDENT. We also believe that developing a good fundamental skill set, sportsmanship, teamwork, and discipline are all components of becoming a great ATHLETE. We focus on these areas significantly as we proceed through the Blackboards and Backboards After School Time together. Daily interactive academic resources, full-court games and various contests add excitement to the atmosphere. We want to build confidence, instill the love of competition along with develop passion for success academically and athletically!
The purpose of the Blackboard component is to assist student-athletes in becoming critical thinkers, as well as independent, self-reflective, life-long learners. This component will provide tutoring and academic enrichment services, which deliver quality and research, based educational and social skills. The program will demonstrate that all students can master and extend academic standards if they are given time, support and instruction that focus on their academic needs.
Our Backboards component is designed for aspiring young athletes who want to take their game to the next level. The daily instructional session combines fundamental skill instruction, such as passing, dribbling, shooting, rebounding and defending. In addition to focusing on fundamental skills, the participants will also partake in organized team competition with the goal of providing a safe and education after school event. Our staff if comprised of experienced coaches, former players, and athletic trainers who are all well versed in the athletic development of young athletes.
