In Boston, Shooting Touch has established a year-round presence and program that provides inner city and suburban youth with opportunities for development, both on and off the court.
Internationally, The Shooting Touch Sabbatical Program, known as the "Basketball Peace Corps" provides the opportunity for gifted college graduates to work in Rwanda, dedicating an entire year of service to using basketball as a catalyst for good.
December Classic was a good tournament. We had a good turnout. There were about 130 children show up to play. We split them into about 15 teams. Of those 130 children, 18 of them were girls. We had enough girls so we made them play each other instead of the usual co-ed teams. They loved being able to play with other girls and having their own little tourney. We wanted to promote gender equality and empower women. We were fortunate to have two wonderful guest speakers attend our program.
