Supporting one another in a time of crisis

The green warriors have never been stronger

Coach Kenny and his fierce warriors prepping for the big game!

 

Head of the Nob Hill YMCA Community Center and active member of the Long Branch Neighbor Corps team, Kenny Wilson has also been volunteer coaching one of 7 basketball teams sponsored by LBAA. The fourth grade girls team from Broad Acres has made huge strides, playing their most competitive and hardest fought game yet this past Saturday–just barely coming up short of a victory. Pretty amazing for a group girls who for the most part hadn’t even dribbled a basketball before the season began!

 

Only losing by a mere two points, the girls and their families couldn't contain themselves

And while she wasn’t able to make the most recent game, 3rd grade player Lanice’s mom Lucy has begun coaching the team at their weekly Wednesday practices. Believe it or not, she’s the first parent of a child on an LBAA team to take over the coaching reigns! Kenny is thrilled at this development🙂
