More often than not kids can
not afford AAU leagues,
team fees, or camps. So all
they have are the city parks.
And most times that is their
sanctuary. If you grew up
playing in the city
neighborhood parks and it
has positively impacted your
life, we want to hear your
story. If you would like to be
featured on our website and
social media pages, send
your earliest park stories and
a photo of you playing in the
park then (if possible) and
now to
All who enter will receive an
Impact tee and wrist band.
Let people hear your story

so they know how important
our parks are to us!!! Thanks
for your participation!!


Playing basketball in the parks is  where I honed my love for the game. Basketball not only taught me that hard work pays off, but it also allowed me to obtain a College Bachelors degree with minimal loan debt. Basketball helped make me into the person I am today. SO it's only right that I help to give back to what helped make me me.
