2013 Minor Basketball Day, a huge success!
This year Minor Basketball Day was on Saturday, February 2. Players with the help of their coaches were able to show their skills and drills on main court during half time of each of the Women's and Men's games. After each game the Women's and Men's teams were able to spend some time with the players. The GPRC Wolves teams signed the players jerseys, autograph books and enjoyed some pizza with the Minor Basketball players. A fun afternoon was enjoyed by everyone.
Here are some of the pictures taken during the half time from both the Women's and Men's games.
A Very Special Thank you to all the coaches for being available on Saturday and helping the players demonstrate their skills. Once again it was a great day for your players. This program does not work without the commitment you give to it and could not be done without all the effort you put into the program.
Players and Coaches present Wendy's Restaurants with a plaque of Thanks for their continuing contribution to the Wolves Minor Basketball program.
Wendy's Restaurants have been our Major Sponsor and we are grateful for their many dedicated years.
