Summer Basketball Program Successes!

August 13th, 2014

The Seidman Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids basketball program concluded their summer season in July. Officer Harris and a group of coaches/volunteers took over 40 kids to American Youth Basketball Tour (ABYT) Nationals in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Let's look at some highlights:

  • All of the kids had hopes of becoming #1, but for our 6th/7th grade boys team that dream became reality. After a rough start at Nationals, the team came together and became National Champions. (Pictured)
  • The all 7th grade boys team was defeated in the semi-finals, but finished the summer with an impressive record of 40-3.
  • The 3rd/4th grade boys team was Runner-Up at Nationals and finished the summer with only one lost.
  • The Seidman Girls Varsity team concluded their season at the Nike Invitation in Chicago, Illinois.  This was an awesome event, and the girls really represented the Club in a positive manner. They made it all the way to the "Sweet 16" in their age bracket.
  • The Seidman Girls 5th/6th grade team finished their summer with an impressive record of 7-1.

As the teams were led to victories throughout the summer, the coaches realized that the kids learned more than how to dribble a basketball or shoot a three-point shot. They learned the meaning of teamwork, sportsmanship, and challenged themselves instead of giving up.

A special thanks to all the sponsors, coaches, volunteers, and parents for a great season!
