Having quality equipment is essential for Student Athletes to become successful on and off the court. The Wilson Evolution Basketballs are used on the high school and college level. Our kids often play the game of basketball not knowing how to play the sport the correct way. Some are not taught the right fundamentals to play the game at a high level. The rebounding tools and floor markers are great instruments that can help develop their skills to be successful on the basketball court; as they move on to the next level to high school and then to college. Basketball, as well as a majority of team sports helps gives our youth in the inner city an outlet from their reality. Often times sports can help curve a students behavior for the best. Consequences such as suspension or detention may not have a positive affect on the student; but missing a game or the feeling of team and not wanting to let down your team mates can go along way.
