After an exciting season that featured 11 wins, two first-team All-Metro selections and a Varsity team GPA of 3.6, we are expanding our development program in an effort to take the program to a higher level and help our student-athletes achieve their dreams of becoming successful college basketball players.
We are scheduled to play about 30 varsity games in June against competition from all over the Upper Midwest in tournaments, leagues and college team camps. This is a core piece of our year-round development plan for Lincoln Basketball but the cost is high for our kids to compete. To put a JV and Varsity team in every event during the offseason, it’ll cost us $5400. Obviously, this is a huge cost for us since we don’t charge kids or parents for our year-round development program.
Please consider donating to the Rails Basketball Club to help us pay for our offseason development costs this year. We have a target of $6000 to cover the entry fees but if we can raise more than that, we are able to send our most promising and committed young players to Elite Camps in the area. In the past, we’ve paid for camps for players at Iowa State, Point Guard College, Breakthrough Basketball, Handle University, Court Time and Snow Valley. We firmly believe that our recent rise on the floor is contributed heavily to the experience gained by our student-athletes at these camps and clinics.
With your donation to the Rails Basketball club, this high level of development will cost our Southside families nothing. We are already hosting a series of youth clinics and competitions because of the funding of our community. With your help, we can take the next step and make the Rails Basketball Club a year-round development program for all levels.
All donations will go to the BLH-Boys Basketball Booster Account to allow us to pay for camps, clinics, tournaments and leagues.
