Tavares FL —
I’ve written about HOOPS Life Cares Inc before but with summer upon us I’d like to spread their word once again. Founded by Pat Burke; Former NBA Player including playing right here with our hometown team the Orlando Magic, HOOPS Life is preparing to welcome our community youth to it’s long anticipated Summer Camps.
Established to benefit youth through life skills and a leadership based educational curriculum. HOOPS Life builds character, instills leadership, team building, integrity, and wellness. All positive traits that help youth to become stronger and achieve more in life for themselves and their community. HOOPS Life is committed to social responsibility with a strategic preventive measure approach on youth and the community. The future is shaped by how we focus on youth today.
Speaking with pat Burke – “My vision is that individuals have an opportunity to gain the assistance and support needed to unlock their unlimited potential in life while having a positive impact on their future, and community.”
HOOPS Life mission is to impact community youth through basketball, as a vehicle to support children with life challenges and leadership opportunities both on and off the court.
HOOPS Life introduces individuals to leadership and life skills intended to develop, transform and provide applications to improve their lives on and off the court. Our approach allows players to face personal challenges and achieve new reference points of success for their future. The program’s core foundation is designed to support and assist youth by providing a safe place for individuals to achieve self-awareness and overcome obstacles in their lives.
HOOPS Life is a complete K-12 program similar to European sports clubs. The difference is that the emphasis is on life-skills and long-term athletic development (LTAD) and AAU.
HOOPS Life training facility is located on Old U.S. Hwy. 441, roughly equal distance from Eustis, Tavares, and Mount Dora. They are a non-profit 501(c)3 and all charitable donations are tax deductible.
Let’s see if we can help them by donating today. Every dollar helps support the youth right here at home. Visit HOOPS LIFE DONATIONS to learn more and donate today.
