Basketball season is here! Tuesday, November 4, 2014
Join the Skylight Foundation-sponsored Empower Sports for another season of Everyone Wins Basketball League at the following three venues - Independence, Solon and Chagrin. The season runs from November to early January and includes practice, games and a gym full of excitement every week. The league, is organized by Empower Sports, whose mission is to use sport to encourage diversity and promote compassion among athletes of diverse socioeconomic, physical and cognitive challenges
“The league programs give athletes with special needs the chance to play right alongside their typically-functioning peers. While they learn to play basketball in a fun and positive environment and master the fundamentals of dribbling, passing and shooting, the real magic is in the social experience. It’s a fantastic opportunity for the children to make new friends and build their self-esteem supported by our coaches who work hard to foster teamwork,” said Steve Thompson, President of the Skylight Foundation.
