We are excited to announce three new coaches to our SWISH family. Dan Klassen, Chris Martin, and Ross Jabosen, they bring a wealth of knowledge and a great passion for the game of basketball. We are very lucky to have them come on board for 2020. Their addition brings three new club teams, U10 boys, U11/12 boys, and U14 boys which will give more opportunity to young student-athletes to play and learn in a competitive and caring environment. If you'd like to learn more about these gentlemen please visit our staff page.
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.
