B&B Youth Academy: Week 1
Saturday’s B&B Youth Academy was full of power. The day started off with a reading discussion on their book "Stay Woke" by Justin Michael Williams. Next week's academy day has a special surprise directly from the author of the book.
After going over their readings, guest speaker Christian Verdugo was introduced. Chris is x2 All Moore League First Team Guard who played at Cabrillo High School. He was also a Press-Telegram Dream Team Honorable Mention, and although his insights into the game of basketball were vital, his life advice on growing up in similar neighborhoods is what struck a chord with the youth.
Following the guest speakers, the youth academy transitioned into the basketball skills clinic lead by all of our coaches and Quicksandmindset. All 4 courts were used up, with multiple coaches on each court. The youth were locked in for the next two hours, some even saying it was the most fun they have ever had. The day ended with quality catered meals from Primal Alchemy. Allowing all the youth to take home tasty meals to recharge and go about the rest of their weekend. Our youth stepped up to the plate. Our coaches came out ready. The community was waiting for this.
The comeback summer.
