Message from the Director
For the past nine years we have worked hard to put on a basketball clinic that provided young girls with an opportunity to learn the fundamentals and to have good, positive exposure to the game we love. And it is such a gift that we have been able to offer this opportunity to the participants for free. However, for 2016 the Bear Basketball program is going into a transitional phase. With the coaches' busy work schedules and the seemingly never ending difficulty of procuring gym time for the girls, we are considering a new direction. We will offer financial assistance to programs already in existence that are lacking sufficient resources as our funds allow. One such program at Taft High School has already been awarded a grant, and another at Gamble Montessori has been nominated by an alumni of the Bear Basketball program.
At some future date, the Bear Basketball clinic may be resurrected, however at this time, we do not have the resources to continue it as in years past.
Thank you for your many years of support.
