Celebrating 2-year giving back to our community with the city of Port Coquitlam. SWISH Basketball staff and our student-athletes volunteer our time to maintaining the city's outdoor basketball courts and surrounding park by cleaning up litter, painting court line and changing out nets to give back to our community. We aim to develop good basketball players but more so hope to make better people out of our kids.
Congratulations to SWISH alumni Marcus Hui and Koen Bay on receiving our Ritchie Bros. Servitude and Leadership scholarship. Their commitment and service to their community is a great example of what SWISH strives for in our players. We help create great basketball players but even greater people out of your student-athletes. They return as a student-coaches to our U10/11 group. We are excited to have them back and share their experiences with the youth in our club. Thank-you to Ritchie Bros. for supporting youth sports in our community.
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.
