Shoot2Score Hoops (S2S), a non-profit organization created to give back to the Houston-area youth and community, is looking for local businesses and individuals to sponsor youth participants for its 2nd annual summer basketball camp, beginning July 27th – 30th at To God Be The Glory Sports Complex in Houston, TX.
“Shoot2Score Hoops is more than just a basketball program, it’s an opportunity for youth to build discipline, character and self-confidence,” Shoot2Score Hoops founder and Houston-native, Marcus Sloan said.
The four-day camp for boys and girls ages 8-18, offers extensive training on shooting, dribbling, rebounding and playing sound defense in addition to the opportunity to be seen by AAU and high school coaches. From 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. each, the kids will have the opportunity to work with camp mentors, comprised of high school coaches, college and professional basketball players. All camp participants will receive a camp T-shirt, a photo, basketball certificate and other prizes.
S2S’s mission statement emphasizes its desire to provide “positive development of underprivileged boys and girls in Houston, Texas through basketball and character building programs.”
Unfortunately, many of the disadvantaged youth targeted for this program, can’t afford the $150 registration fee for the basketball camp. Sloan is hoping local business owners and/or individuals are compelled to give a child the opportunity to not only perfect their basketball skills, but to learn critical life lessons under the mentorship of professional athletes and coaches, by volunteering to cover the registration fee for any child in need.
