RDC Basketball is heavily involved in many volunteer and nonprofit based projects and organizations that give back to the community. We train our players hard on the basketball court, but we also believe in growing our players the right way off the court.
Instead of just monitoring from sidelines, we decided to jump right in! However, we also like to contribute financially when we can so we accept donations towards our community efforts. Please donate directly of purchase some of our gear at http://www.getyourteamwear.com/RDC-Basketball-c20866103
The Recess Program was created to give all students a chance to participate in organized games during their recess time. Typically each school has 3-5 recess staff that have to supervise 100-200 students by area. With the guidance of our highly trained staff we will be able to work with up to 6 classes a day per building. Our services will help facilitate positive recess relationships through prescribed age appropriate activities that include explanation, demonstration, expectations,and real time individual and group feedback. TRP provides a welcoming environment for each student to try something new together. Further, we provide services of mentorship and anti-bullying messaging. A fundraiser will be held for each school (or grant written to PTA) to raise money for necessities dependant on each school’s needs. We will also build our community at large through a partnership and school visits with surrounding police to promote the positive interaction between our community and safety officials.
