We’ve pivoted quickly to continue and offer high level training despite the fact it won’t be in a gym. This pandemic has us down but not out. Please follow us on Instagram @bcswishbasketball and join Coach Drew Slaght on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm until such time as we’re back in the gym.
No titles or trophies on this early Saturday morning in Port Coquitlam. Just our club's volunteer day at Evergreen Park, one of five spots that SWISH Basketball helps the city maintain. January 11 was particularly sweet because after cleaning up the basketball courts and surrounding park we stumbled across this sign. It's not made of bronze, silver or gold, just a sign of gratitude that's put a smile on all our faces. We aim to develop good basketball players but more so hope to make better people out of our kids, grounding them and us to our community.
We are so proud to say Inno Foods is a supporter and sponsor of our club. This locally run global confectionery is allowing kids in our community an opportunity to play competitive basketball at a fair cost. Not only that but they are also providing us with snacks for fundraising with 100% of the profits going back directly to our teams and club. Did we mention their snacks are delicious! A great way to fuel up before our next game, get our there and give their snacks a try, better yet look out for our fundraising! Great things are coming! THANKS, INNO!
CONGRATS to our award winners Nick Torres and Mai Inoue. They are the recipients of the Ritchie Bros. Servitude and Leadership scholarships. They best emulated our club's values on and off the court throughout the spring/summer season by volunteering in the community, achieving academic excellence and are supporters of our Adopt-A-Court program with the city of Port Coquitlam. Thank you to all our student-athletes who participated, you are great examples of our club and your community.
