Life Change is a long term admirer of Dave MacNeil and Wildhawk Basketball.
A few years ago our partnership took on deeper levels as we started signing up some of our boys for MacNeil’s basketball programs. It became quickly apparent that a few of our fellows had talent and they qualified for travel teams. Almost any day this summer if you were to venture into the neighborhood you will see a number of the lads dribbling and a shooting on a nearby court. We have helped create a bunch of basketball fanatics!
It is always fun when one of our fellows gets a write up in a local newspaper.
We were introduced by a school principal to Gang Martin Gang 18 months ago; a rather imposing 6’3”, grade 7 students. Since this time he has been involved in our Sunnydale Connect programming. Last year he was invited to join a travel basketball team opening up many opportunities for growth and development. Competitive basketball at Gang’s age can be extremely challenging and he has risen to the challenge. Winning the Ontario basketball gold medal and graduating from grade 8 have been significant recent milestones. Wildhawk Basketball has again, as it has done so many times before, played a critical role in guiding a boy towards becoming a man.
Last week we have 5 fellows in the high school camp, this week we have 9 boys in the younger one: A truly Life changing partnership!
